  • About me.

    I know enough to know that at 04.00am it gets dark out on the streets. It has done this for the last twenty odd years, to my knowledge and will probably continue for the forseeable future. At some stage in this ‘future’ I shall retire and probably won’t give a damn if it still gets dark at 04.00am. Until then I shall be out there, somewhere, lurking in the shadows because someone, somewhere will be doing stuff they shouldn’t and then, well then I will introduce myself. In the meanwhile I shall try to remain sane and remember why I joined in the first place and try to ignore all the people who piss me off by making the job more complicated than it should be.
  • Opinions

    Any opinions contained in posts are mine and mine alone. Many of them will not be those of any Police Force, Police Organisation or Police Service around this country. The opinions are based on many years of working within the field of practical operational Police work and reflect the desire to do things with the minimum of interference by way of duplication for the benefit of others who themselves do not do the same job. I recognise that we all perform a wide range of roles and this is essential to make the system work. If you don’t like what you see remember you are only one click on the mouse away from leaving. I accept no responsibility for the comments left by others.

  • C.T.C. Constabulary.

    A Strategic Community Diversity Partnership. We are cutting bureaucracy and reducing the recording of target and monitoring related statistics. Our senior leaders will drive small, economical cars from our fleet surplus to save money to invest in better equipment for our frontline response officers. We are investing money to reinstate station canteens for the benefits of those 24/7 response officers. We have a pursuit policy. The message is that if you commit an offence and use a vehicle, we will follow you and stop you if necessary. It is your duty to stop when the lights and sirens are on. We take account of the findings of the Force questionnaire and are reducing the administration and management levels and returning these officers to frontline response duties. We insist on a work-life balance. We have no political masters. We are implimenting selection processes that take account of an individuals skills and proven abilities for the job. Our senior leaders will have one foot in reality and still possess the operational Policing skills they have long forgotton about and seldom used. All ranks are Police Officers first and specialists second. We will impliment career development and performance evaluation monitoring of our leaders by those officers who operate under that leadership. The most important role is that of Constable. All other roles are there to positively support the role and the responsibility of Constable and the duties performed.

    “We trained very hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganised. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganising. It can be a wonderful method of creating the illusion of progress while creating confusion, inefficiency and demoralisation.”......Petronius

Irritable bowel.

Tracey Crompton has never had a job, and her husband Harry has been out of work for 15 years.

Yet the couple live for free in a seven bedroom house with their ten children and receive £32,656 in benefits a year.

Firstly, they want even more benefits.

Secondly, that their neighbours have nicknamed them ‘Britain’s Biggest Freeloaders’.

Mrs Crompton, 40, moaned: ‘I’m not satisfied with the benefits we get  -  I want more. I haven’t been able to work because I’ve had to bring up the kids and Harry’s got health problems.’

As both are unemployed, their weekly £120 rent is paid by housing benefit and they receive another £628 a week in income support, disability and carer’s allowance and other payments. Mr Crompton, 50, says he is unable to work due to angina and irritable bowel syndrome.

Angina doesn’t stop him popping out offspring.

I have a bit of an irritable bowel just thinking how my hard earned tax taken from me on false promises help sustain a lifestyle like this.

Some of us have the amount of kids we can afford whilst others simply take the piss big time.

  1. OMG am in shock. Pond scum has a purpose these lot have none OMG.

    Mind you when charity clients with animals turn up at a vets 9 out of 10 have just been or come back from some fantastic holiday, or have a brand new car, or have sat nav, or are calling from the pub and come in stinking of fags and/or booze.

    The people that really need the help can not get a look in, they do not know how to play the system.

  2. Should have been sterilised years ago. How about not allowing anyone to have children unless they hold down a full time job?

  3. OMG WEB why do these people live in my home town, it infuriates me, I suffer from IBS and also all the other problems I am going through since having my Gallbladder removed, neither of them have lead to me being off work, other then normal recupperating time after the op.

    They make the government look so rediculous, not sure if it mentioned in the Daily Mail but when it hit the headlines here it mentioned how many bottles of Coke they buy in a week.

    Also in the comments section they are claiming all that money and apparently only seven of the kids still live at home…it just gets better all the time….NOT!

  4. My partner and I woud like a child, but we’ve decided not to have one until we’ve paid back our credit cards and other debts. (The wonders of contraception). Maybe we should bankrupt ourselves, quit working and have as many state-funded babies as we fancy.

    Or then again, we could maintain some self-respect.
