Feeding Plod's Cash machine

Police officers have complained that they are being be forced to behave like pushy car salesmen in order to hit targets for imposing on-the-spot penalties. - Telegraph

A bit of a slur on Car Salesmen, they have to use wit, charm and guile to extract the money, not the threat of force.


I'm sure you noticed that this story came from the Scottish Police Federation conference: there is no performance related element to police pay in England for officers below the rank of superintendent.

OT(although... maybe not in terms of the patterns that occur in both stories), but very entertaining: http://translate.google.com/translate?js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=1&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bluewin.ch%2Fde%2Findex.php%2F24%2C265341%2FSchwindel_mit_Solarstrom_in_Spanien_aufgeflogen%2Fde%2Fnews%2Fwirtschaft%2Fsda%2F&sl=de&tl=en
