Police chief disappointed PM used officers as speech backdrop

Finally, in the West Yorkshire city of Wakefield, Johnson's speech on police ended when an officer standing behind him fainted.

In a statement, West Yorkshire Chief Constable John Robins said on yesterday's Ministerial visit: "Yesterday's visit by the Prime Minister and Home Secretary was to visit our Carr Gate training facilities, to announce the launch of the national recruitment campaign for an extra 20,000 police officers".

John Robins said on Friday that the force had agreed to its officers being used on the "understanding" that it would be in connection with the Government's police recruitment drive and had "no prior knowledge" that the speech would veer into politics.

Some 35 officers were positioned behind his lectern for at least 20 minutes before the speech at West Yorkshire Police's operations and training complex began, and during the address one became unwell.

"It clearly turned into a rant about Brexit, the Opposition and a potential general election".

Mark Burns-Williamson, West Yorkshire's Police and Crime Commissioner said there was no way police officers should have been used as a background should have formed a backdrop to a speech of that nature. "This is what we should be talking about - this is what is important".

Mr Burns-Williamson told the PA news agency: "To use police officers as the backdrop to what became a political speech was inappropriate and they shouldn't have been put in that position".

Mr Johnson, who was in Yorkshire today to speak to police officers, was walking through the town, campaign-style, when he was accosted by the Irishman.

Craig Grandison, vice chairman of West Yorkshire Police Federation said the woman is "OK and the Federation is looking after her wellbeing". "Police officers and trainees are overstretched and need to be able to get on with their job, not have to waste time listening to Boris Johnson's political press conference".

The clearest case possible of wasting police time!

The officer then stood up minutes later as Mr Johnson finished his speech.

The shock resignation came as Mr Johnson geared up for an election campaign which will focus on his uncompromising approach to Brexit. "I hate banging on about Brexit. The only way to get this thing done, to get this thing moving, is to make that decision".

"Well that's fantastic then, that's what we're going to do", said the prime minister.
