Pulse-quickening headline o' the day

They know all about media magnets, impact and share of eyeball at the Met's press office, as this demonstrates:

"Met maintains policing services"

Didn't that just make you sit bolt upright and pay attention?

I would think that in terms of surprises, that rates alongside 'sun rises', and 'Traffic plod says to speeding driver "Think you are Lewis 'amilton, do you sir?"'.

True enough, but compare that to other services such as TFL. TFL's website is bristling with excuses. They are blaming the lack of buses on the councils for not gritting the roads. Pathetic.

I thought of adding in the caveat, so yes, you make a fair point.

I think "with reduced service" should have been added.

Although I spent all the snow days on night duty and actually out on patrol, we were desperately short of officers who couldn't get in.

The gits.

Although I have the fortune to work from home (at the moment), I come from a background where I am expected to get to work come hell or high water. My mother walked 7 miles each way to get to work in the early 90s when we last had these weather-related difficulties.

Anyway, good on you.
