Payrise – what payrise?

June 27, 2006

I moved one point up the payscale this month.

It made a whole £60 a month difference to the bottom line.

I won’t be moving abroad on the strength of it.

    Maybe we can pool our money so I can visit England and you can visit the United States. You can stay with us and then you can put us up for a few days.

    If Britain were truly a Police State, then there wouldn’t be anywhere near the amount of crime that there is now. The definition of a police state is one where the government use the police to maintain and enforce political power.

    While there are idiots out there who are voting for Tony Bliar and his cronies, they don’t need the police to maintain their positions.

    I was interested in the article on metal detectors at railway stations. I would point out that railway stations are the property of Network Rail and although they are “public places” the network have the right (whether you like it or not) to prevent access to their property. If you refuse to be searched, you can be denied access to the station, in the same way as people attending football matches.

    Personally, I think that these detectors are no more than a publicity stunt. Those who choose to carry weapons (which I note you have not condemned or commented upon) could quite easily go to another railway station to gain entry to the network. For example, in Birmingham, there are over a dozen mainline stations within a very small area and only the biggest one has a regular police presence. If there was an operation at New St, it would take minutes for someone seeking to avoid detection to walk to another station.

    Thanks for the offer – I’ve checked on flights and worked out that my rise wouldn’t even get us off the runway, so I’ll have to decline for now. Perhaps if I get promoted?
