Last one out...turn off the lights.

You know, its not the big stuff which tends to really grate.... its the small stuff ...the bye the bye, the minutiae that filters down from those above .

In its smallness it really explains what this organisation ,the MET, has become.

Someone out there feeds this stuff in and seem to think those reading it will think nothing of it.

I expect and I get,  the nonsense and outpourings from the politicians and the SLT. We all know were we sit. We are shafted and we are trying to make the most of it.

What I don't want to see and expect is, in the face of  20% cutbacks ,fundamental changes to our structure and working patterns and  station closures is  that we still have time for Earth Hour.

Someone, has decided we are signed up to Earth Hour,

We are expected, if there is anyone on duty or not dealing with the usual nonsense over the weekend we will try and turn off the lights for an hour.... its all part of the MPS Corporate Social responsibility program.

Recent figures suggest as much as 30% of the Met estate will be closed and sold off. All approved by the Mayors office responsible for policing.

We cant keep police stations open and yet we have someone called Head of Carbon Management paid by the MET .


Where does this  end?

Are we to be pared down to offices within stations that are left, communicating by tapping on radiator's or pipes or perhaps using a shared carrier pigeon if we need to communicate with another station

The politicians in the Mayors office on policing seem to be doing enough.

The planned closures mean there will be big chunks of the Met estate who's lights will be turned off permanently.

Job done  Earth Hour....!

Hugs and decaffeinated all around !
