The Bleeding Obvious - How to waste Money
Nanny's chums in Scotland have discovered another way of wasting taxpayers' money, by publishing a 140 page "diversity handbook" and distributing it to 7000 members of the police.
Nothing wrong with that, in theory, if the book contains some genuine insights and addresses known issues that are negatively impacting policing then it may well be money well spent.
The trouble is the book does not contain anything useful, and is merely a list of bleedin' obvious; points that your mum would have told you when you were a child; eg:
- "Don't lean on a disabled person's wheelchair".
- "Don't cover your mouth when talking to a lip reader".
- "Don't stare".
- "Don't ask a person with a facial disfigurement what happened".
These little pearls of wisdom (which mum would have told you as a kid), gleaned from consulting 75 different groups, cost the taxpayer £5K.
This daft waste of money implies that those running Scotland's police forces have little respect for the commonsense and abilities of the officers on the beat.
