Re: Top 5 things to change

1. The outstation (after 5 years it is in sh*t order and was never fit for purpose). 2. Senior management (lets have a clear out & get some peeps into senior management that have actually stood on a hard shoulder). 3. Cover shifts (get rid of them or my other half will get rid of me!). 4. A decent a...

Re: what are T.Os worried about most in 2010?

I picked; MORALE - lack of communication is rife. but seriously considered voting for; PROMOTION - too few chances to move up. We desperately need more TOs promoted up through the ranks. OMs & a ROM that have zero on-road experience is :slr: stupid. How they can possibly expect TOs to follow their i...

Re: Neighbours hire their own police force

Dave MacLean left his car unattended on the H/S of one of our motorways recently (on a dark night, on an unlit stretch with no hazard lights on) - he returned whilst a HATO patrol was on scene and a police unit was on it's way as the PNC showed 'police interest'.

Player: "Ref can I get booked for thinking something?"
Ref. "No, don't be silly"
Player: "Excellent, then I think you're a *~@£ !"
