So I'm going to flit about it all somewhat and just give some general opinions.
The new Home Secretary: I hate politicians as they are generally a complete waste of space. Let's just hope this one does a better job than the last stupid cow, surely he couldn't be any worse. Plain and simple.
Cops put the wrong fuel in to patrol cars... ok, I've not done this one.. BUT I can see how easily it could be done. So, lets commission a study in to how many members of the public manage to do just the same thing in a 12 month period before we talk about how much money the police have spent on getting tanks flushed!
Part of the problem of course stems from the fact that half of our police cars are diesel and half are petrol. You have to be reminded. Or perhaps part of the fault should come down to the fuel retailers for not having the PUMP NOZZLES clearly labeled.. go in to one high street retailer and ALL the pumps are black!! put BIG clear labels on the pump heads and save EVERYONE a lot of problems... In most countries the COLOURS on the pump heads (the handle bits that you hold) are UNIFORMLY THE SAME throughout ALL retailers, this is to stop this problem..
And lastly for today, because I'm completely bored waiting for work to start... Another police chopper damaged! It absolutely is beyond belief that these VITAL pieces of equipment are NOT behind massive fences in secure areas.. complete with dog patrols, security, or even a full CCTV system if nothing else... I'm pretty sure OURS is!!!
So.. why is it that after the Surrey Police chopper was damaged a very short while ago other forces didn't do anything to increase security of their own mega-million pound investments?
Staggering isn't it?
I would have thought that it was plain and simple, you protect your equipment, specially as choppers save lives. Not only the lives of the police who are on the ground, the lives of the criminals we chase, and the lives of the general public who we can rescue because of the chopper directing us straight to them!
Oh yeah, a question for you guys..
What would you like to see written in this blog? (I may not change anything but a bit of feedback is always a good thing)
