Ireland has jobworths too

Wednesday, 03 March 2010 18:04

The UK does not have a monopoly on jobsworths, they are alive and well, living in Ireland and doing their best to disrupt life in the emerald isle.

Today a one-man-band garage owner was issued a written warning by the Irish Health and Safety Authority (enough said?) for hanging a calendar featuring topless models in his workshop.

The garage owner is the only person who works in his workshop but he was still warned that the calendar was a “display of pornographic material at the place of work" and he was given a deadline for its removal.

The jobsworths strike again, trying to enforce petty rules and regulations in a fit of pique and self-aggrandisement that would do any British jobsworth proud. No longer can the UK claim to be the only country that has Olympic-standard jobsworths, there is growing competition from Ireland.

 

Labour's legacy

Thursday, 03 December 2009 08:38

We used to joke about soviet Russia where you could be clapped in jail for ever just for taking a photograph of a railway station of town square. Thanks to Labour we now live in a country where police are harrassing photographers and innocent people for no good reason.

Take this tale of an innocent person taking snaps in London.

The police have been given ever more intrusive powers that are not needed. We can only hope that there will be a change of government and that our liberties will be restored. Somehow that doesn't seem likely.

 

Why the middle-aged are getting criminal records

Wednesday, 28 October 2009 19:39

There seems consternation that more people over 40 are getting criminal records for the first time. It does not take more than two brains cells to know why this is happening.

These people were brought up in an age when one was taught to respect authority and speak out when things were not as they should be. However in modern Britain after 12 years of Labour's social engineering we have a country where jumped-up little Nazis are in positions facing the public and are all too ready to use their power to put people in their place.

A good example is airport security where being an obnoxious power-crazed megalomaniac with a chip on your shoulder seems to be a pre-requisite. When faced with such blatant misuse of power the average middle-ager will complain and tell the offending youngster a thing or two. The result is that the police are called and action is taken against a law-abiding citizen. The obnoxious little terd can then feel vindicated and has a good story or two to tell down the pub.

Case two - Labour's philosophy is that everyone, everyone is a paedophile in waiting - and is guilty until proved innocent. Evidence the Independent Safeguarding Authority that will hold details of most of the population at a cost of £64 a head and criminalises almost everyone. This tells you more about the government than anyone else, they don't trust the population because they are the most untrustworthy individuals. Evidence - MPs expenses.
