‘Colleagues….. please take a couple of minutes to read this little ditty that I have written….keep up the good work.
‘Prime Minister disMAY’
Hello everybody My name is Teresa May
I’m in charge of the Police And they’ll do as I say
I’ve no knowledge of law enforcement
A cop I’ve never been
I’ve no idea about what they do
I’ve never seen what they have seen
I’ve never been to a domestic While only single crewed
Or worked a shift of sixteen hours With no opportunity for food
I’ve never been to a pub fight With no back up for miles
Or picked up a “five hander” Then had to do the files
I’ve never turned up for duty On a team where numbers lack
Or been glared at in the supermarket When trying to buy a snack
I’ve never forced entry into a house Where a body has been for days
Or told a mum her child is dead After trespassing on the railways
But I have some staff in Westminster Who tell me what is right
I have more people in my office Than shifts turn out at night
I’ve infiltrated the service With a thing called a ‘Commissioner of Crime’
Who fights my battles from within
Further eroding the Thin Blue Line
They are tasked with securing efficient policing
Whilst their office staff continues to grow
Obscene amounts paid on wages
While the Police Service approaches Death Row
The College of Policing Introduces more ill thought out ideas
Degree required for entry
Limiting applicants for the career Fast track to Inspector
Wasting effort, money and time
People promoted above their own incompetence
Those who have never dealt with crime
Promotion is no longer about skills Or abilities on the streets
It’s about how you use the Facebook And sucking up to bosses in your tweets
I am determined to ruin Policing Staff losses from backroom to the front
Yes, it’s me and my policies
And a load of Government…..er….cuts!’

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
