"Sainsburys staff shamed themselves at a glittering awards party with a drunken night of debauchery and mayhem."
700 staff, many of them store bosses and regional managers had gathered for the event on Thursday evening.

That is what the papers are saying today after Sainsburys staff had a wild weekend away at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, South Wales.

It started with a champagne reception followed by an awards dinner.

A male and female,both bosses, both married, had to be dragged apart by security staff as they simulated sex on a sofa in the foyer. The pair started kissing and the lady (if thats what you can call her) lifted up her skirt as other guests looked on. Then when she lifted up her top, security staff rushed over to seperate them. They were not very pleased with this action.
One member of staff has said: They were going it like hammer- and -tongs on the sofa and they didn't want to be stopped."
The furious couple then set off two fire extinguishers in the reception.
They returned to his room where the glass of the fire alarm was later found smashed.

Other members of staff were urinating in lifts and stairways.
By the early hours of Friday morning, many of the Sainsburys staff were so drunk that they could only cling to the rails of escalators taking them from the basement suite to a guest bar for late-drinkers on the ground floor.

What happens to people when they go away? Now, I'm all for a good time and a laugh, but there has to be a limit, don't you think?
They are adult people and they should know better.
Apart from when they wake up the next morning with the splitting headaches and feeling sick. But also the fear and dread of remembering what they got up to.
That must be the worst of it all, those two in particular are married, so how do they explain that to their partners? Then they have to face their friends at work and that, to me, would be the worst. In fact I don't think I could have faced them. I would have handed in my notice and never gone back.
Then no matter how many years you have been there or how hard you worked whilst there, you would always remember how you left.

The shame of it all.

It's 12p.m. and geoff is still in bed. In fact I have just taken him up yet another cup of tea.
My god, it's alright for some isn't it?

I can't wait for my retirement!

I love watching police series on T.V. The Bill, New Tricks (my fav). But I had to laugh this morning.
I was watching Juliet Bravo.
There was two Sergeants and only one policeman on duty!!!

Don't think that will be enough police officers these days, do you?

Well, I've just had a funny experience.

On friday nights I take geoff out to the legion so he can play snooker with his best friend brian.
It also gives geoff a chance to have a drink as I never go out now and geoff is always driving so he cannot drink.

So, I drive to the legion, dropped geoff off and then went back to the bypass to drive home.
When I got to the bypass there was quite a lot of traffic on it so I indicated to join them and waited for a gap.
After a while this man in a white car pulled over to let me out. I put my hand up to him to thank him and drove on. The man in the white car then drove off very quickly. When suddenly, I saw this black car come up alongside me.
Now there was a speed limit on the bypass of 40 m.p.h. because they had been working on it. Everyone acknowledged that speed limit.
The man in the black car was still driving alongside me but I wasn't too bothered by this but I thought it was strange, as normally, they would just go speeding off.
I kept looking around, as you do on a bypass,when I looked to my right hand side expecting to see the black car alongside me again when I noticed.....The black car had disappeared!!

I looked around in astonishment.
Where was he?
Where did he go?

I know he didn't speed off because the car in front was the white one that let me out.
There was nowhere to turn off, it is a very long straight road.
He hadn't slowed down and gone behind me because there was a grey one behind me.

He hadn't crashed because we would have seen and heard that.

I searched high and low for him but I never did see him again!

So, please tell, if you can work it out.....where did the man in the black car go!!

Jim Gamble, is the Deputy Director general of the U.K.'s National Crime squad and is the senior officer responsible for tackling online child abuse.

In 2003, the Virtual Global Taskforce (VGT) was established, bringing together jim, law enforcement agencies and corporate partners including microsoft. The founding law-enforcement members of the taskforce are the National Crime Squad, the Australian High Tech Crime Centre, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the US Department of Homeland Security and Interpol.
The award winning VGT's mission is to prevent child abuse and deter child-abusers by using the very same medium on which they operate: the internet.

In january 2004, jim kicked off Operation Pin in the UK,USA,Canada and Australia. It centres on an internet site purporting to contain child abuse material.
However when they have logged on to this site, it tells them that their name and address have been reported to the police.

They are hoping that this is a deterrent. If they know that they have been reported to the police, they may not go to this site again.

However, Jim Gamble, it is reported has come up with a new idea of not sending paedophiles to prison but to get them the medical help they need.

Yet he has had great criticism with his idea. I really don't know why as it is obvious that they do need help.
If a crime has been commited you may agree that they should be imprisoned like any other criminal but in these cases, I do not think that prison is the answer.

What help do they get in there?

They need professional help from a psychiatrist.

But should they be allowed to walk the streets free? Surely they should go somewhere safe, for us and for them.
Perhaps in a special home for the time they have their treatment, and only be allowed to leave when they are cured.

If they could stop just one person from committing such terrible crimes then that is one person they have helped.

It will be a start and perhaps we could reduce the number of paedophiles.
When looking through the police blogs I have noticed a few that have not blogged for a long time.
