Re: diversity check for T.O.s

Due to having a few Sikh friends I know 5. It represents the duty of Khalsa, which is to both provide food and protection to the oppressed. The symbol is made up of weapons (protection) and a bowl or cooking pot (food) and is called the Khanda. Pretty certain 4 is Hindu? 8 is the Star of David and h...

Re: Public fear legal aid cuts will lead to wrongful convict

Hmmm I am always suspicious of opinion polls run at the request of those with vested interests? I was watching a news item today on this very subject. There were a number of pious people from the legal profession telling us about the miscarriages of justice and innocent people who had been saved by ...

Re: A&E: We cannot guarantee safe care for patients anymore

Perhaps if GPs worked for the money they get paid and people did not expect that even the slightest injury or ailment should be immediately remedied then A+E units could get on with the second part of the job title..note it says accident and EMERGENCY! Also things will not get better until politicia...

Re: YAMMER ARE YOU ON IT

in other words you can't criticise the H.A? when you're on Yammer - using your work email - your Real name is displayed? or a User Name like on here? You can choose what user name you want AFAIK but as your work e mail address is displayed it is a pointless exercise to be anything but yourself. TBF...

Re: the role of a T.O in 2013

One of the major obstacles we have with the TOS is that us on the ground have moved on to meet the changes in the job but the pink and fluffy brigade are still stuck on day one. :slpe: Yes I think that just about sums it up! :slgo: Mind there are more than a few on the front line TOS who are just a...

Re: disclose your convictions when applying for any job?

I am sorry but surely theft, be it shoplifting or some other form of theft, is relevant to any job?

You should know if somebody is more or less likely to nick the stationary?

Re: Scene Screens

This is the reason the younger T/O's are doing a towing course. Lets just hope the course is offered to the older T/O's who do not have any towing experience. I am led to believe that, the fact that just because someone has a particular licence category does not mean they are competent, has been po...

Re: Scene Screens

is this the same kit that got mothballed as it was too expensive to operate and maintain? As you say RT, just who will be available and trained to deploy this stuff once all the closures are on at a major incident? I suppose some poor saps will be expected (if they are suitably trained) to fag 60 mi...

Re: PC who stopped to help a stranded woman on a motorway ki

I have said on a number of occasions, just what would you have to do to get the maximum possible sentence for this offence. The answer of course is to have a govt that will actually build sufficient prisons to put these people away for the terms they deserve and judiciary that will fill up the place...

Re: Staffing Levels

In essence you & GM are saying they are not really required :slgo: . Making up crews isn't really a TM role is it, surely that would be a TO role :slw: Is it not? Well it should be! After all why train them to be able to perform those duties? Possibly a question you often ask yourself lol But that ...
