I just love the last line, join as an Inspector or Superintendent, you must be joking. They did, some yrs ago take kids straight from Uni, and they were made up to Inspector rank after 2 yrs, They had absolutely no idea of what it was like in the real world, much like Cameron and Co now.and were bl**dy useless, and a liability to who were unfortunate to work under them.
Needless to say, it didn't last that long.
As for them being unfit, I was 10stone when I was 15, and am still the same weight at 70, get them off their backsides and out on the streets, some of them are so fat, they couldn't even catch a cold.It's up to the individual to keep themselves fit.a matter of self pride.
As I have so often said before , put EVERYONE from the Chief Constable down on a 2 yearly contract, then notice how quick things change.
There is no such thing as a problem, just a solution!!
