One of a growing band of folk disillusioned with the Tory government and its determination to privatise everything that’s good about this country. Feel free to come back and visit from time to time, and I hope you can take something away with you.
I spent 30 years in the Met, was chastised by many for retiring so young, at the ripe old age of 50, and then went to work for The Metropolitan Police Authority as a Forensic Auditor, where I found out 1st hand a) how a Police Authority operates, and b) how easy it was to rip-off the Met (not me, the naughty people)
In 2005 my wife and I packed our bags and set off for the red wine and sunshine of South West France, but for a number of reasons we came back in 2011 and are now settled in DeadBadgerShire where the wind is always blowing, the rain is always raining and the sunshine is a rare commodity.
The longer this government (and my blog) goes on the more I realise what a totally arrogant, cynical bunch they appear to be.
We seem to be getting fed official statistics that owe more to Jackanory than what is truly happening in the big, wide world. Recent revelations would indicate that government simply bins reports and evidence that don’t suit their agenda, ably assisted by their Special Advisors.
I have always been the sort of person that will take up cudgels against unfairness and injustice even when it’s blatantly obvious that I’m about to lose.
For the avoidance of doubt, I am opposed to corruption in any form and in any area of our lives. It has no place in the Police, no place in Central Government, no place in Local Government, in fact no place anywhere. I need to state that as there are some who doubt my opposition to it, if the evidence is there, go where it takes you. We should be looking under those stones and revealing what is there.
Hence the blog, I hope you like it. If you have a topic you’d like me to cover just drop me a line and I’ll give some serious consideration.
