and in response,
Anthony Duggan, head of fire services at the Local Government Association, said: 'The fire service needs to be representative of the area it serves. It is important that the fire service attracts more women and ethnic minorities so that it can work more effectively in partnership with local authorities and other organisations to meet the needs of local people.' Mr Duggan called for a 'culture change' and said that asking authority members to sign the diversity charter 'will show that those who are making the strategic decisions are serious about getting a greater mix of people working in the service'.
all I can say is that I wish Mr. Anthony Duggan needs rescuing and the only crew available is all female, ones that could not pass the test that males have to pass.

the figures were released by 15 major Government departments, other ministries, which refused to say how much they spent, could take the final figure to £63million,
to put this in perspective, that would pay for more than 660 more nurses, 626 teachers or nearly 200 doctors a year, it could also buy 8,300 hip replacement ops, 40 new MRI scanners or 1,700 prison places, for spending my money in my book Ed Balls, Jack Straw et al should all be in prison!
