    Uk 2020

    "The power of social media lies not only with the tweeter, as one trainer found when photographs posted online by his business were used against him in disciplinary proceedings. Phil Kirby has been fined by the British Horseracing Authority for failing to ensure his staff wear body protectors when riding his racehorses, a problem that came to light only because a member of the public noticed it while looking at the social media output of Kirby’s stable.

    “Several posts on his social media ... showed six of his staff not wearing safety vests whilst riding horses that are in his care and control,” said a BHA statement on Monday. “The pictures that had been posted between May and July 2020 also indicated that the staff had not been wearing safety vests for several months.”


    UK 2020, East Germany, Soviet Russia, what's the difference, snitch on your neighbours if they go out while under lockdown, ring the filth if your neighbours have a barbecue, pore over social media to check if kids riding horses aren't wearing body protectors. Jesus wept, what a ****-hole of a country this is turning into, I expect the member of the public turned Twitter detective will already have his application in to be a Covid Marshal.

    What else can you possibly expect sinkov, when the UK's Home Secretary is actively encouraging neighbours to dob each other in?

    I have to agree sinkov. This is what you get when you have no leaders and those in charge just wish to pander to the diverse wishes of all and sundry.

    How many times did you see someone who you worked with, who was not brilliant at what they did, suddenly get promoted and leave you wondering how they had managed that? The next thing you know they have been promoted again and end up running the show ---or should I say ruining the show?
    Sadly, I can't see any easy way out of the situation that has been created ----life goes on, however, like football ---not the way we know it!

    Like I said in another post BT, a lot of the general public are quite happy to go along with these authoritarian edicts emanating from our moronic politicians. Which is why I say we're turning into East Germany. It wouldn't surprise me if the price of second-hand Trabants was going through the roof.

    I have a rusty old Lada stuck in the back of a garage, wash and wax time I think.

    You have to remember as well that -------we have a wall up here ---all we need are a few lookout points and I am open for consultation after my 26 visits to Berlin during the Cold War era.

    I could give you the name Sub, but obviously I won't, of one FB officer who was found to be fiddling his travelling expenses while working at Training Centre. Next news he's promoted a rank and found a desk job at Brigade Headquarters. One way of resolving the problem.

    My son works for LAS and has seen this happen so many times and they are in a sad state with the head of the lot of them having no medical experience.
