Wife ™ and I have now officially separated. Been on the cards for a long time but now it’s happened.
I can cope with the final destination, but I don’t really want to make the journey.
Great trip home on what they call the Northern Line tonight. Packed to the rafters, with people hanging on outside and on the roof. And I get to get squashed against some twat who obviously hadn’t heard of de-odorant, or in fact had heard of it but was a stinky sociopathic arse bucket.
Well, another day passes and another bit of copper kicking going on. Not the kicking of a copper, but one of Her Majesty’s finest bobbies on the beat giving a beating to some sad woman who was asleep in her car.
The papers have covered it, and there’s a youtube video of the blood spraying about the cells, but what gets me are the words and phrases in the media about it.
Now, imagine you a a policeman. You are expected to uphold the law. It’s the sole reason for your job.
Then we get:
Former soldier Sgt Andrews, 37, was eventually convicted of assault causing actual bodily harm after a trial at Oxford Magistrates Court earlier this summer.
He will be sentenced on Tuesday and could face up to six months in jail. He is expected to lose his job.
Andrews was suspended on full pay after his conviction.
After his conviction? Suspended on FULL PAY after his conviction???? And he is expected to lose his job???
And people wonder why nobody has any respect for the police force any more?
I need a lie down.
Happens to us all. Wife asked me to put some washing in. I did. But overfilled it a bit and during the fast spin cycle the door flew off. Then I remembered I forgot to put the large brick in too! Oh noes! What should I do?
I know, I’ll just lob it in. What could possibly go wrong with that idea?
