A plea to the all employed in the public sector

Written by RSS Poster Not the Daily Mail on the 02nd October 2013 at 15:32 - Posted in Police Blogs

A comment in a recent blog post got me thinking.  The conservative party is promoting infighting between each sector of those in public service, and as a result sniping and bickering is readily happening as to ‘who has it worse’.  This bickering is allowing the cuts imposed on the public sector to go unnoticed and remain ignored while each group fights with each other. It’s time to fight back.  I implore all those who read this blog to contact me with examples of how the cuts in their sector...

The Daily Mail show their colours

Written by RSS Poster Not the Daily Mail on the 01st October 2013 at 22:51 - Posted in Police Blogs

The recent offence taken by Ed Milliband over the Daily Mail article written about his Father has shown the political elite what I, and many others, have known for some time.  That the Daily Mail is a paper that happily distorts whatever it wants.  The Daily Mail, among others, have written these types of articles about public servants for years and have suffered no ill effects for any of them.   It is only now that politicians are coming under this vitriolic attack that Mr. Milliband questions...

Why talking about Winsor’s uniform is important.

Written by RSS Poster Not the Daily Mail on the 30th September 2013 at 12:59 - Posted in Police Blogs

As of a few moments ago that’s how many hits “How can Tom Winsor look at himself in the mirror?“.  That’s one blog, started around 2 weeks ago with a post dedicated to one civilian and his ridiculous decision to wear a full ceremonial uniform to a memorial event. Some have questioned whether it is appropriate to divert attention from National Police Memorial Day and whether this should have been discussed on another day.  Unfortunately there was little to no publicity in the media about...

How can Tom Winsor look at himself in the mirror?

Written by RSS Poster Not the Daily Mail on the 29th September 2013 at 15:43 - Posted in Police Blogs

Tom Winsor, responsible for reducing the starting wage for the Police to £19,000 pa, while at the same time increasing the entry qualifications; who decided that direct entry to the significant rank of Superintendent was a good idea as well as being able to make Police officers redundant; who increased the age at which Police officers can draw their pension; who decided that Police officers must have mandatory fitness tests, but not give them any time within work to keep their fitness levels to...

A desperate state of affairs

Written by RSS Poster Not the Daily Mail on the 27th September 2013 at 20:00 - Posted in Police Blogs

Today I read the incredibly sad story of Bella Hellings.  Bella was a three month baby who died after suffering a seizure in March. Unfortunately it took 26 minutes for paramedics to arrive on scene due to a number of wholly preventable issues.  The fault of these issues lies squarely at the feet of the trust rather than the individual paramedics. The first issue is that Bella lived on a new build estate, so new in fact that her address didn’t feature on trust vehicles sat navs. Unfortunately...

Let’s straighten a few things out

Written by RSS Poster Not the Daily Mail on the 26th September 2013 at 16:39 - Posted in Police Blogs

While perusing various media outlets looking for stories that may be of interest I’ve noticed a few wild inaccuracies that I desperately want to correct.  Some of these examples aren’t really appropriate to critique each article but as concepts I’m happy to correct as you’ll see further down the page.  However if the media can’t report  basic things correctly how can we have confidence in their ability to report larger issues well? If you’re a medical professional, please be kind....

It appears some journalists don’t know what they want.

Written by RSS Poster Not the Daily Mail on the 24th September 2013 at 16:27 - Posted in Police Blogs

I’m writing today about an article in Saturdays Daily Express, “Health and safety rules have turned into a sick joke”.  It’s confusing as it appears that the Stephen Pollard, who wrote the article, isn’t really sure about what he’s writing about nor what he actually wants. The article starts with a mention to an unrelated case of which I have no knowledge nor expertise so cannot comment with any authority – however to ensure that you can read the entire article I’ve copied it,...

Police criticised for restraining aggressive individual

Written by RSS Poster Not the Daily Mail on the 23rd September 2013 at 16:51 - Posted in Police Blogs

The police are often called upon to protect the most vulnerable of society, the sick, the young and the elderly.  So it should be of no suprise to the public that when a care home phoned the police because a they could not control an aggressive male the police arrived and restrained him to protect the residents, themselves and the male. What makes this particular male different is that he too suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, a disease where depending on the severity can make the patient violent as...
