    Isnt this the type of bribes/corruption we apparently see in developing continents like Africa?

    Has it come to our shores? Cutting police pay was bound to have an effect.

    it is not right to assume people are guilty just because they have been charged.

    It has always happened, my dad is a ex cop, I remember a funny story he told me in the 70s they passed around like slabs of cannabis at a meeting telling people to smell it to know what to look for, by the time it got back to the front it was a tiny amount, but said it was encouraged to test it to know what people were like on drugs.

    And the usual protection things, local shopkeepers giving free things like food and drink even takeaways so you would keep an extra eye out when covering them.

    But the main things were money and gold items were always going missing often meaning trials had to be thrown out, dad and some of his friends left over the years due to corruption, and bullying is heavy in the police force.

    Will wait and see. They are apart of the "organised crime unit" after all.

    Accused of taking money. I'll wait until the trial has finished.

    In other news, something unverifiable may or may not have happened somewhere......maybe.

    Where's that tripe dip recession you were so sure would happen?

    You'll complain at 0.5%. More accurate data will come in and it'll be revised up next month and you'll keep quiet.

    We're still here. Most of us are happy and content, and you're still posting rubbish.

    Not at all.

    I'm happy with how I am.

    You seem to post a non stop stream of left wing (constantly negative even though factually data will always show the oppoosite of what you're saying) drivel.

    Did we have a triple dip recession you said was going to happen even though there was no double dip recession.

    I never said the people who left all left 40 years ago only my dad had a example that happened 40 years ago.

    Some of these were in the last 5-10 years.

    Africa isn't a country. Do you need a map?
