I saw a poll today that suggested 68% of firemen retire early due to "ill health". The figures for the Police were 49%, local government 38%, teachers 25% and civil serpents 22%. I can accept the first two categories are jobs with an element of danger, but 38% in local government!!???! Just how fcuking dangerous is it to be a dustman these days? Figures for the Armed Forces? 6% Next time a Fireman's Strike comes round, shall we only send a third of the folk required and tell Two Jags the rest are off sick.
