FREELOADING… anything a politician can do, the police can do better!

October 9, 2009

We’ve been hearing a lot about freeloaders lately, but this from the BBC has to take first prize…

A group of Scotland Yard officers may be punished after being caught sitting in first class on a train for free.

Police get free travel in standard class in return for keeping carriages safe and tackling abusive passengers.

But an anti-corruption unit found six Metropolitan Police officers in first class. A sergeant and three Pcs from Westminster police were also caught.

All the officers now face misconduct proceedings following the bust on 11 September.

‘Free’ travel for police in London is estimated to cost around £24,000,000 a year!

    It’s safer in 1st class. It’s dangerous sitting with the common folk! Don’t worry about the cost, our President is printing money for anything we want.
