On the job....


Time for a "clunking fist"....
A Welsh primary school head teacher jailed for a car crash which left another man in a wheelchair for life will not lose his job it has now emerged. Paul Davies was sentenced for 15 months after a 120mph crash in May when he was said to have driven like a “boy racer”. Passengers from two other cars were also injured in the incident. Interestingly enough, this is a case that Magistrates didn't want to touch at first.South Wales Police has had to apologise for the particularly inept way it handled the case.
Paul Davies has been told by school governors his job will be kept open while he is banged up. Davies, denied he had been driving dangerously during the court case (although he claims to have no recollection of the incident) . The judge told him he must serve at least half the 15-month sentence.
But at least, he will have a comfortable job to go back to on release....and he's not alone. In fact, UK public sector workers always want to get back to work ASAP whatever they may have done. And I mean we are talking serious negligence here and here.
Perhaps, there's hope for the "doctors of death" yet.
Alas, Gordon Brown seems to be focused on other more pressing matters.

I think the sentencing of our driving laws which result in deaths need to be reviewed. If I was the parent of a person killed by another driver, I would be devastated to think the killer's life was going to continue unchanged. I'm sure it remains on their minds for ever.

Britain's laws have the intention of subverting civilisation. Think about it.

Why, because the British cravenly surrendered to the agenda of the destructive Left.

Someone like Ellee discusses and picks over one case and fails to see the landscape.

No offence.

This particular case =was a bit eye popping and I spotted it too ,. IT. You overarching point that teaching is a profession form which you cannot be fired is absiolutely right and the source of much further difficulty

NAyone done an analysis of the numbers of dismissals from the world's largest employer, the NHS, happen each year? My guess is les than 0.05% of the workforce.

Tuscan Tony - Very interesting point. I'm sure they don't get sacked. It's the Soviet system. If one of those murderous little dickshits who tried to blow up Glasgow Airports survives - God Willing this will not happen - they will undergo a "disciplinary hearing" because no one had properly explained their role to them, and be back "treating" patients within six months.

That is the reason hero Mr John Smeaton had the correct idea. Indeed, may I humbley suggest that terrorists be sent to Glasglow and simply released onto the streets - with due warning, needless to say, to the inhabitants of Glasgow in case any of them want to host a welcoming party?
