  1. It is possible that this man is not actually a police officer. Despite his assertion that he is an officer for the anti-busking brigade, he never shows Eldon nor West a badge, does not wear a uniform, and harnesses no weapons that are synonymous with a police officer. In addition, he makes no genuine attempt to arrest or fine Eldon or West for their crimes. He largely juxtaposes Mel, Giselle's uncle, a police officer who has appeared on the show.
