Porky pigs facing the chop
Hmm, unsure of this. Is it right to sack the fatties? Just as Krispy kreme has entered the UK?
Could it be (successfully) argued that the job requires a certain amount of fitness, and if so, should they have periodic fitness tests?
It’ll be good for the fuel consumption of the cars, trucks and helicopters though.
Most relevant; Will the union stand for it?

One of the funniest ‘fly on the wall’ police docs I saw involved the local plod not being able to beat down a particularly tough looking door [ a big, outward opening hardwood jobbie]
Anyway, after many minutes of flogging away with the the battering ram a few local kids turned up to heckle them.Posted 6 years ago
One of the kids shouted “give the fat boy another go” followed by “the exercise will do him good”NonsenseMember
Im a police officer and I’m all for it to be honest. I also think the level of fitness required to join now (much lower than when I joined) is waaaay too low. Some roles in the police already require regular fitness tests and higher levels of fitness to do e.g firearms, dogs, public order etc.
Some of the stuff quoted there is total poo pop though. No idea where they got the stats from for the percentage of overweight officers. Plus it goes on bmi rather than any sensible measure of fitness or proportion. I’m 6’1 and 14 stone but I also have a low body fat measurement and would be classified as one of the fatties.
I predict the other stuff about direct entry at Inspector and Superintendent level will backfire on them spectacularly. You wouldn’t employ a vet as a consultant neurosurgeon. Madness.Posted 6 years ago
