Re: Media spin - what are your thoughts?

I don't detect any bias (although it's only a re-hash of other similar articles). No particular anti-PCSO rhetoric. you don't think? I do. the title. the briefest of mentions it was an NPT team and not just PCSOs. the bit about the commentator being a retired PC as were his relatives followed by 't...

Re: National PCSO Uniform !!

We are now going back to shirt and tie but with a twist; the wicking shirt will stay but :slhi: have a cotton collar attached to it. I cannot wait to iron those buggers! they sound delightful :slgg: we're still in blue wicking shirts (no ties) but have black micro-fleeces. and silver bands on hats.

Re: Unison Pay Rise Consultation

As fascinating as this debate is, if unison get us a 3% pay rise I will personally bare my arse in Trafalger Square. They are beyond hopeless and have about as much bite as a 25 year old poodle.

I think you should write PCSOs. Superfluous apostrophes make me itchy.

Re: PCSO converts to Islam

Irreverent perhaps but I wonder if there is a valid point here. OK you think your bowler hat is crappy but does it not convey some authority?

Take it on the chin. seriously? so give him the message that whenever we meet, for the next twenty years, he can talk to me however he wants and nothing will happen? he can swear at me in front of other people and there are n...
