Banker (possible typo?) convicted of impersonating a police occifer after riding an ex police bike with most of the stickers still on it and wearing an old police uniform with a "POLITE notice" hi-vis vest.
Link to terrorism is utter bollox. Link to him being an utter c*ck-womble massively understated.

I can only assume that his conviction was overturned on the grounds that the judge had horse-riding friends who also wore 'polite' vests.

We had discussions on this when he was convicted.
I still reckon what he chose to wear was calculated to make other motorists think he was a cop.
Strange how the story picture shows him with another bike, not the ex police BMW he was riding at the time.

I wonder why the Met doesn't take the same approach with the security guards at Canary Wharf? They look a lot more like old bill than this guy, and their uniform is clearly calculated to deceive.

It’s a private estate and it helps the police save time.
I find them very helpful.

Is the offence limited to only public land then?

I don’t know.
But if it is an offence why hasn’t it been stopped? After how many decades?

That's a good question. If a private individual were to dress up in exactly the same uniform, I'm sure they would find themselves in a spot of bother. But if you're talking about people employed by a multi-billion pound private corporation, different rules seem to apply, even though they shouldn't.

So do I, I just don't think they should look like the police.

Well the High Court has already given some thought to the idea of revoking their licence, see Rooftops South West Ltd & Ors v Ash Interiors (UK) Ltd & Ors [2018] EWHC 2799 (QB) at 47:

A Writ of Control is not to be regarded as a kind of blank cheque or a licence to act with impunity. Wisely, neither Mr Shale nor Mr Royle relied upon or referred to this part of their clients' case in their submissions. However, it is astonishing and concerning that their clients, a body and an individual acting under statutory licence, should have done so. Taken together with the multiple breaches of procedure and the absence of proper records that I have referred to, the apparent lack of recognition or insight on the part of the persons concerned, the lackadaisical and dismissive attitude of DCBL to these proceedings and the fact that what oversight the third defendant exercised with respect to DCBL was and is apparently rendered from Florida, there are grounds to consider terminating the third defendant's authorisation to act as an enforcement officer under Regulation 12 of The High Court Enforcement Officers Regulations 2004. I will refer the case to the Senior Master for consideration of that course.
