    Tonight the night

    Very true, but I fear the shops selling all the costumes and decorations will call it harmless fun!.

    I feel sorry for America having to choose between these two muppets.

    Fracking licence Granted

    I remember swampy moaning when we lit a fire and the fumes were going down his tunnel back in the late 90s in Crystal Palace. Haha what a shame.

    Fracking licence Granted

    I wonder if the great unwashed will be turning up to demonstrate.

    £50 Pay Cut!!

    True, well they've been doing it for a number of years already, so why stop at 1% pay rises, removal of CRTP and increased pension and NI contributions, why not have a 1 or 2 % pay cut as well. I hope the witch of Maidenhead isn't on here.

    £50 Pay Cut!!

    Yea but, that's not a pay cut it's a change in circumstances, and foreign aid isn't backhander's either.

    State Pension

    CP, you have found a new job for when you retire!, rewriting gobbledegook from UKgov. By my reckoning with 38 years at the serps rate I will only have to work just over a years for the full pension, unless they change it again.

    Officer seriously injured.

    Yes it's a dangerous job, let's hope they all make a full recovery.

    Let's also consider people who rarely get sick, I was fortunate to only go sick twice in 21 years, once when I ended up in hospital for 2 weeks and when I had a small operation on my hand. For some unknown reason I never caught something bad enough to put me in my bed. I do think there is untoward pressure put on people by the sickness regime within the job, they are crawling into work or using annual leave to keep their sickness down which is wrong.

    The Referendum Discussion

    The total for Spain is probably 30-50% too low, due to the fact that most who live here permanently aren't registered as such. I know people who have lived here for many years who are still shown as living in the UK.

    Any advice for a newbie?

    You only have to look on this and other forums to see that Google has been deactivated in many cases, I knew when I first joined that there was a bit of salary loss without google,forums,farce book etc.

    Police oath

    I think the oath has changed in the last few years from the one I swore on, I have never heard officers pointing out the differences in its content. I think it's more of a symbolic event when joining up, and the only people who seem to mention it are Freeman of the land.
