PC investigated for saying 'don't tell me what to do in my country'
Metropolitan Police officer Marcus Tyson, who has served on the frontline for almost 29 years, was responding to a screaming pro-Kurd activist who told him to 'get out of here' during an ugly clash.

>Be Veteran police officer with 29 years of duty
>At PKK protest, a banned terrorist group
>people shouting at you ‘fuck the police’ and ‘get out of here’
>people blocking traffic and ambulances
>people get in your face
>’Don’t tell me what to do in my country’
>Under investigation for ‘’’’’’racism’’’’’’ and possibly fired for ‘gross misconduct’

His response:
“It’s purely a statement of fact that this is my country”
“Officers are afraid to do their job because of this pc idiocy”
“Stalinist thought police & oppressive political correctness”

Anthony Gross - The Battle of Egypt, 1942- Inside an Armoured Command Vehicle in Action (1942)

Anthony Gross CBE, RA (1905–1984), was a British printmaker, painter, war artist and film director of Hungarian-Jewish, Italian, and Anglo-Irish descent.

Through advocacy by Eric Kennington to the War Artists’ Advisory Committee, Gross was offered, and accepted, the role of an official war artist, and produced etchings and oil and watercolour paintings of English coastal defences and troop training. In 1941, with a temporary commission of captain, Gross was attached to the 9th Army and painted within the Egyptian, Syrian, Palestinian, Kurdistan, Lebanese, and Mesopotamian theatres of war, sometimes accompanied by other war artists Edward Ardizzone and Edward Bawden, and later documenting the 8th Army’s North African Campaign. From 1943 he transferred to India and Burma to witness the front line battle against the Japanese; these works were the subject of a one-man exhibition at the National Gallery when he returned to England. Later, in 1944 and 1945, an exhibition of 51 of these drawings, entitled India in Action, toured Australia, New Zealand and the United States.
Gross accompanied the D-Day invasion of Northern France, wading ashore near Arromanches at 2pm on D-Day. He sketched the beachhead landings and spent the night in a slit trench on the beach before moving inland the next day. Gross recorded the devastation of Bayeux and Caen, and followed the Allied armies to Paris and then into Germany. He witnessed the meeting of American and Russian forces at the River Elbe on 25 April 1945. Gross was, at the time, one of the many war artists who painted a portrait of General Montgomery.
