Met Police Federation Chairman blasts Priti Patel over her treatment of police officers
22 July 2021, 20:51
Metropolitan Police Federation Chairman Ken Marsh has taken aim at Home Secretary Priti Patel's treatment of police officers.
It follows the Home Secretary earlier this week confirming that police officers earning more than £24,000 would face a pay freeze.
The Met Police Federation Chairman began by telling LBC that police officers have been "patted" by Priti Patel and told "how brilliant [they] are".
However, he continued: "And all we're asking [from] her is to fight our corner and it doesn't appear that she has done that whatsoever."
LBC's Iain Dale asked him if he agreed with Labour saying Priti Patel's position is untenable.
The Met Police Federation Chairman replied: "I certainly do, yes."
