Got a Facebook Account? If so and you’re in the job be careful what you post because the Rubber Heel Squad are hot on your tail.

19 police officers & staff from Northamptonshire are now under investigation for making posts on Facebook in support of a colleague who was facing disciplinary action. Such comments as "Keep smiling mate, you’re a good hard working copper", and "Chin up, you’re an inspiration to us all, everyone’s rooting for you", are apparently sufficient to have you invited into the office for coffee and a chat without the coffee.

This’ll be another of those restrictions on your private life which you get compensated for by means of having a pay negotiating body to deal with your annual pay rise because you have no other bargaining power, wait a minute….
