i have just popped down to tesco to buy a few bits and pieces - on a sunday, on MY time. now the following should not have suprised me as it happens every week, but who should i bump into but two PCs complete with uniform and assualt style vests. I am in there for 15 minutes as i try to locate velcro (a long story) and they remain bimbling around with arms loaded with bread and milk and tins of food. i try to give them the benefit of the doubt - perhaps they have just finished their shift - but timed to perfection, they drive past me in the carpark in (wait for it) ... their police issue squad car!! FFS - all we hear is that there arent enough officers, and there is too much admin and paperwork for them to be out in the community providing a service, reassurance and presence against crime ... but actually it is just that they want to do their fuck1ng shopping before they finish work. goddamn it grips me up - am i alone? fcuk it, i'll turn up to work late on monday and get myself off a disciplinary by showing my tesco receipt - oh no, i dont work for gwent police is it me?
