Early days about what happened in Woolwich.

One man apparently butchered on the street.Two males who apparently did this paraded for a period whilst awaiting police to turn up. They duly did and, frankly, faced with the scene and activity before them neutralised the risk.The welfare of the two involved  is in the hands of our beleaguered health system.

My main thoughts are with the male (and his family and friends) who was killed by these two.

Followed by a close second to the officers and emergency services who had to deal with the immediate aftermath and  will have to account for their actions when they arrived.

The rent a quote 'wudda cudda shudda' will have their soundbites in the days ahead.

Signed, sealed and delivered

The LPM is now signed off….as per my previous post all reasonable and sensible alternatives seem to have been ignored.

The 24th June is a real watershed as far as I am concerned.

Management have, as ever, taken the nod from the Home Office.

The troops are on the ropes, the whining cur that is now the FED has scuttled back to its well-appointed kennel in Leatherhead.

Do with them as you will…

And so they have …..

Efficiency… efficiency… efficiency....

The MET has only one asset that can make the whole nonsense work and that is its workforce.

A workforce that has stepped up time and again despite everything….

Management are seriously misreading local sentiment.

To quote the Eagles

‘Take it easy, take it easy

Don’t let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy

Lighten up while you still can

Don’t even try and understand

Just find a place to make your stand and take it easy’
