  • Plonker means 'Person with Little Or No Knowledge'. Originally used by male police officers when females were first taken into service. They were designated Woman Police Constable or WPC, which nicely allowed the pejorative W-plonk, referring to the new intake's supposed ignorance of police procedure.
