Fred Burgess of The Association of Chief Police Officers today criticised the government over its open support for the activity of the notorious ‘Dambusters’ bombers.
Mr Burgess commented ‘At a time when the police are urging the public to be ever vigilant against the terrorist threat, Mr Cameron is holding fly pasts and galas: this group of ruthless professionals reeked death and destruction upon thousands of innocent Europeans in a war of terror campaign destroying lives and property.
A representative of the terror cell, a man calling himself Barnes Wallis stated ‘We were freedom fighters struggling against an evil, oppressive Nazi regime’. Mr Burgess however responded by saying ‘this is the type of rhetoric we often hear, typical of the 9/11 terrorists’.
The move comes at a time when David Cameron is trying to distance himself from Europe. UKIP leader Nigel Farage commented ‘The Tories are running scared on Europe and this blatant support for a dissident group, active in Germany, is a knee-jerk reaction to try and regain votes lost to UKIP in the local elections.
Ed Miliband also taunted the government in the House of Commons on the issue by placing his finger and thumb together, upside down over his eyes and singing ‘Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah’.
