The Blue Badge of Courage

It's a brave man who accuses Bill Blunt of knocking the younger generation, but when I read about the exploits of this policewoman via her admirable blog, The Slim Blue Line, I was struck by two contrasting thoughts.

On the one hand, how very encouraging that the police force is still able to recruit caring, thinking individuals such as the author of that blog. My second thought was what a sorry tale the blog tells of the drunken excesses of today's youth, as they stumble past piles of their own vomit to the next fight, disco or late-night kebab house.

Anyway, it's a delight to read this new blog, which provides a human face to people who are doing a difficult job, in difficult places, at a difficult time. Well done!
