In Line of Duty S01E03, there's this conversation:
We've followed procedure to the letter, sir.
I don't doubt it for a minute, but Tony Gates is, uh, from the South. I'm sure you'd be mortified, Ted, mortified, if anyone formed the opinion that AC-12 makes a point of pressing charges against officers from the South.
Everyone receives the exact same treatment.
Of course, of course, it's a delicate balance. But no one would welcome the accusation that the case against an officer from the South was being pursued with unusual alacrity.
What does "from the South" mean? (Perhaps it's some sort of euphemism for black in the UK?)
