  1. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-38639818 will the Fed now jump on the bandwagon and claim the win from LD?
  2. Out
  3. Hit hard? Even if council tax went up 4% most would pay less than pound a week extra....hardly hit hard ! If anything it's dirt cheap for the gains it would buy in policing and social care
  4. Regardless of how many troops HMG promise it's going to take,them a few hours to be In a position to do anything and guess who will be expected to hold the fort..thats right us mugs. if this situation arises I will risk access it and request the nearest Tory mp takes my place . The way we have been treat over the past few years I won't be throwing my life away any time soon.
  5. So if you have volunteered for VS and don't get it you go to the top of the list for CS should it come in? As you would have demonstrated your desire to leave the job?
  6. Nothing will change untill it affects the Tory puppet masters
  7. Typical politician really...two faced deceit is an everyday event
  8. Horrendous night in Paris, thoughts are with all those involved. Should anything like this happen in the uk we will be screwed, particularly with the massive reduction in officers and may now talking about reducing firearms units...wtf are they thinking ? More evidence for arming those at the front line imo. The French assaulted the concert room within an hour, and had armed teams at all other areas...and still many were killed and injured..think we could do similar?
  9. Anywho, actually on the topic of a19 I know several people who are financially sound but stay cos they have never planned for retirement and ' would be bored'. But then complain when coming to work that they would have liked another hour or so in bed !!! Bunch of sad twats imo, better if they left and let someone else replace them who might actually need the money. Greed and/or stupidity seems to be the order of the day for most on 30+ From what I've seen
  10. I have to agree with cheese, I've done CID and response over several years of each, and response is less stressful but the shifts take their toll after a few years. I have two and a half to do and I'm staying put on response ...I don't want the hassle of cid and I'm NOT paying for my own work wear when I get it free on response. Anyone who does CID is a mug nowadays IMO, just the removal of plain clothes allowance is enough for me not to go back without the long shifts and tray full of jobs
  11. Let's hope the revisit paperwork isn't near that dry powder !
  12. Fine words Zulu, and how it should be, however the truth is no one gives a toss if an officer gets assaulted as they see it as part of our job. Even if they go to court it's usually amongst other offences, and there's no penalty given to the offender for these assaults, and are routinely dropped at court anyway. Assaulted 3 times this year so far...none have received any extra penalty for this. Maybe why assaults on officers are increasing?
  13. Personally I don't have a problem with them going as long as they are never allowed back in
  14. Had this sent me from a friend. ..seems register 2 Fed are up to something : As communicated to you all in my last email the New Police Pensions draft regulations and draft guidance has been received by the PFEW from the Government. They have both been returned to the Government by the PFEW with 130 comments raised on the draft Guidance and 100 comments on the draft Regulations. The pensions Regulations will be laid before Parliament by the 03/03/15 and will come into effect from 01/04/15. Essentially the Government are trying to push the regulations through prior to a period of 'Purdah', which I will try to explain below: With the General Election taking place on the 07/05/15 Parliament will go into 'Purdah' 6 weeks prior to this date which in effect is the pre-election period in the UK. This time period prevents Central Government from making announcements re matters of new or controversial initiatives or changes to legislation which could be seen to give an advantage to any candidates or parties in the forthcoming election. Work will continue within the Government in the background but essentially day to day external business will stop. As also previously communicated to you once we have the finalised Regulations, we as part of PFEW Region 2, will seek further expert advice and legal opinion on these new Regulations. If any legal challenge to the Regulations are identified from our expert advice, even though the Regulations come into effect from 01/04/15, we would still be able to mount a legal challenge to them after this date.
  15. Pretty much sums up my Force 20% reduction in Officers so far with another 10% over the next 2 years plus a 40% reduction in civvie staff. Policing in my area will collapse and we will be reactive only
