Crunchy cops

Not long after discovering “crunchy cons” (green conservatives) it seems we now have crunchy cops. Or as an article in today’s London Evening Standard puts it: “Now the boys in blue are going green”. Evidently the Metropolitan Police:

”has ordered its first hydrogen powered patrol cars which emit no exhaust and run almost silently. Meanwhile it is already using almost 100 cars with cleaner diesel / vegetable oil engines.”

The politically correct PC is a long way from the stereotype of the sandal-wearing, long-haired leftist which used to be seen as the typical green.
