Ok technically speaking that should be the other way around in that the story about the police officer refusing to guard the Israeli embassy was from today and this story on Spicy Cauldron about firefighters refusing to hand out leaflets at Gay Pride in Glasgow was from August.
Thanks to one of my readers for pointing out the story on Spicy Cauldron and its connection with the police officer story.
Is this becoming a trend in society? Where people are happy to take the money for doing the job but then want to pick and choose which bits of it they actually do. Of course it is sensible for employers to deploy their people according to those peoples aptitude and ability but in the end surely the employer has the right, and in the case of publicly paid for services a duty, to say to the employee these are your duties and I expect you to do them.
