Out of proportion?

Recommended Posts

Plans to vet volunteers, who volunteer to take kids to sporting events etc; will no doubt be another nail in the coffin of the act of volunteering; and stoke up the current paranoia about peadophiles hiding behind every bush. :shock: Whilst every child should be made risk aware by their parents; the fact is that the biggest risk to children arises from not strangers, but people they know, often within families. :shock: We've had several cases reported recently, where MOTHERS, have killed their own children, now how will the ever growing data base of vetted folk stop that? :shock:

Bit of a blow to WBC, as allegedly, they are expecting the volunteers to take over the running of a lot of stuff that they can't afford to run.

A while back I was about to volunteer my services to the Sea Cadets, but the "authorities :roll: " brought in the checks. I've got no skeletons hiding in the cupboard but I will not allow my private life to be explored by some low life for no good reason. Sorry Sea Cadets but thats life under the PC brigade. :(

It's called shedding your liabilities: 70% of the budget goes on wages, plus generous and costly pension schemes (quite rightly imo); but in the future of austerity, Councils will be begging for "volunteers". :roll:
