IlieWhen I was a kid a police officer was honest and brave to a point of recklessness, how times have changed.

Police forces in Wales have paid out more than £280,000 in personal injury claims to their own staff in the past three years.

Claims such as injuries sustained by “defective office furniture”, an “item falling from cupboard”, and “injury in gym”.

Dyfed-Powys Police paid out more than £94,000, South Wales £84,000, North Wales £52,000 and Gwent £49,000.

Figures reveal 93 compensation claims were put in by police staff working for the four Welsh forces since 2007.

The largest pay out was for £37,862 by South Wales Police in 2007/08. This included £16,000 in damages.

I hate to say I told you so but…

The failure of Britain’s wind farms to produce electricity in the extreme cold will cost billions of pounds, create an economic crisis and lead to blackouts, leading industrialists have warned.

To cover up the ineffectiveness of wind farms the Government will be forced to build emergency back-up power plants, the cost of which will be paid by industry and consumers.

Jeremy Nicholson, director of the Energy Intensive Users Group, which represents major companies employing hundreds of thousands of workers in the steel, glass, pottery, paper and chemical industries, said the failure of wind power had profound implications.

Ordinary people and experts have been for years saying wind power is ineffective and a waste of money, now it’s official. This highlights how UK governments over the past decades really have not been fit for purpose. Thousands of UK jobs haven’t been created and British industry hasn’t benefitted because foreign companies have been used to erect these worthless wind farms.
