Hmph!


CPS bonus for turning up in snow

Well that’s nice isn’t it.

The tax-paying public get to pay these workers a handy sum of £250 just for turning up at work in bad weather.

I turn up for work in bad weather.  Once I trudged my way through three inches of snow for three and a half miles.  I wrapped myself in water-proof gear that  I normally use for hiking and camping in severe mountainous terrain … and I wore huge, clumsy rubber wellies  – bright yellow ones with red strawberries painted on, to protect my tiny feet from drowning in the snow.  I was sweating like a bloody pig when I got there.  And I made it on time too.  Lot’s of other hospital workers made it too. They had to.  The patients depended on them.

Where’s our 250 quid?

  1. The difference lies on the facts that you sacrifice yourself to help save lives, whereas “the others” just “prosecute”.

    Morality, Earthpal, is not well paid these days.

  2. Thanks Jose, it seems to me that everybody is on the take. Everyone is out for what they can get rather than what they can give.

  3. “Carpenters, shoemakers, peasants, manual workers are guided by common sense. They have no pretension to have the key to wisdom. They do not raise questions the answer of which is above their capacities (Ps 130). The blue-collar worker is very unlikely to have any illusions about the quality of his work: If a carpenter makes a set of drawers that does not close, he knows he has done a bad job. If the food prepared by a cook is unpalatable, the culprit knows that he should go back to cooking school. If a tailor makes a suit that is much too tight for the person who has ordered it, he knows that he is a bad tailor. If a car does not work after a mechanic made repairs, the customer cannot be mistaken in telling him that he is a bad mechanic. Blunt, tangible results are more eloquent than words. The punishment is on the tailcoat of the fault.
