OH HOW ATTITUDES AND MANNERS HAVE CHANGED. AND NOT FOR THE BETTER.

I’m sitting here in the frustrating middle of history that goes back a thousand years and more.
My interest lately though has been WW2 but specifically a group of women super women who were Brit nurses during that time.

I’m going to write a bit about these bigger then life awesome ladies who were members of something called the “QUEEN ALEXANDRA’S IMPERIAL MILITARY NURSING SERVICE.” It was formed in 1902.  They were simply referred to as, QA’s. 
I want to share just a fraction of their story but not here, not now.  There is a book about them called Sisters in Arms, and I can’t see anyone reading it without becoming wound up with and admiring of them.

The training these women went through way back when was by todays standards, brutal.  It was humiliating and it was rough and only the very strong made the grade.  But they were first class nurses and first class ladies every one. AND ....  there isn’t any record where any one of them ever even thought about suing their employer with one of the charges being .....  “hurt feelings.” Not that generation.

Not a great transition but reading about their training back in the 30’s and then reading a story today about;

Sacked paperboy claims £8,000 compensation from newsagent

Part of his claim is for ... “Hurt Feelings.” What a message today’s generation is receiving.  Protection against hurt feelings after being fired is a human right now I guess.  It’s sickening and especially after blazing my way through 300 pages of the history of a group of women who btw, were not street smart to begin with.  Hurt feelings?  What a con.

I don’t know if this kid is really being truthful or not.  My guess is no and when you see the article you’ll see why.  I find it hard to believe that the newsagent would think to make up the story that the kid’s dad says isn’t true.

Daddy and Son lost the case (good) but it may go to appeal. (bad)

Please stay with me for one other thing before I post the article.  I got this first hand from the guy who owns the laundry service we sometimes use.
This is just to show you how decadent and stupid this place has become.  Common sense is totally out the window.

He caught one of his employees dipping into the til after a number of days showing shortages in the register.  Well, as you would expect, he canned her.
But she went to a tribunal and he had to pay her for wrongful dismissal because ..........
HE DID NOT PUT HIS REASON FOR CANNING HER IN WRITING AT THE TIME HE FIRED HER!  The system is rotten and a disgrace to that generation who gave of themselves to secure the future of this country. 

Sacked paperboy claims £8,000 compensation from newsagent
A paperboy who was sacked for being “unreliable” took the newsagent to an employment tribunal claiming £8,000 for unfair dismissal.

Myles Bebbington, 15, earned £20 a week delivering daily newspapers around the village of Sturry, near Canterbury, Kent, for two years.

When he asked for his round to be extended, he was allegedly told he would have to start at 6.30am and his mother Denise objected to his employer Jackie Palmer.

Myles was dismissed a few days later in August last year on the grounds that he was late, lacked motivation, posted papers through the wrong doors and failed to find cover when he was ill.

Mrs Palmer, who runs Sturry News, also said that his bicycle kept breaking which also made him unreliable.

Myles’ family launched an £8,000 claim for loss of earnings, aggravated damages, injury to his feelings alleging statutory procedures were not followed.

But the case collapsed after the tribunal in Ashford ruled paperboys like Miles were “temporary staff” and cannot legally claim unfair dismissal.

His father Mark, who represented him at the hearing and whose four other sons had worked as paperboys, said: “He’s worked there for two years, delivering papers in rain, wind and snow.

“Our claim was for £8,000, but all I really wanted was an apology, and for them to admit that we should not treat boys like that.”

Mrs Palmer said Myles had informed her he was “fed up” and had not told his parents that she had had to warn him about being late.

Robert Salter, the tribunal chairman, ruled Myles was not employed under a contract of service so unable to pursue a claim for unfair dismissal or age discrimination.

But Carolyn Hamilton, director of The Children’s Legal Centre, said: “There is no doubt Myles was an employee and I think he has a case which needs challenging in court.”

NEWSBOY

I had a newspaper route when I was a kid.  In CT. You know what winters could be like there?
And I can tell you I was younger then 15 and up and dressed by 5:30am. No foolin.’ Jeesh ....

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
