Morning! What the Press and Media Say!

Good Morning Wednesfield!

The weather this morning is pretty damp, and it is not a day for wanting to go outside,
reading the early morning Press today, I have been struck by two media comments.

The first was the alarm in some Newspapers this morning, that the Government in England
is going to start charging again for NHS staff who Park in hospitals to do their jobs,
when in Wales and Scotland Parking for staff will remains free!
The Conservative Government has soon forgotten the great staff
we have working hard to save lives in our hospitals.

The second major news story that caught my eye this morning is this one, where some our journals
are suggesting that the government,is to tell chief constables
to prosecute shoplifters stealing less than £200 after complaints from retailers that the police
are no longer interested in smaller scale thefts.

It will also review legislation which gives the impression that police are not interested
in investigating such low level crime.
The Home Office conducted a review of the abuse and physical violence faced by shop staff,
which found retailers and shop staff had lost faith in the police and justice system being
willing to tackle thefts from stores and other retail premises.

The Scales of Justice!
