I WAS pleased to read in the Observer that Inspector Ling will not lose his job simply for sending a joke to a colleague.
Yes I know he is a police officer and should be above reproach, but this is PC gone mad.
Criminals daily are let off by lenient judges, for far worse offences but a man, albeit a policeman sends a joke to a friend/colleague and is pilloried.
What an utter waste of time and public money.
He is also a human being and a quiet word in his ear by his senior officer would have sufficed.
It is a good job the general public’s PCs and mobiles are not monitored with the amount of non-PC jokes flying around.
I often receive jokes about the Welsh, do I take offence? No I have a good laugh.
My Irish friends tell me to only send them Irish jokes. I wish Inspector Ling best wishes for the future, it’s good to know we have at least one human policeman in our midst.
