    Now this is Barking Mad! - PC sues for Discrimination - which shows PC just gets Madder!

    Its just not Fair!

    WPC Kim-Louise Carter was awarded £15,000 after failing a fitness test which involved a 10-mile run, then carrying a dog over a course before running with it a further 100 yards.

    Now 'Police forces must change the way they recruit dog handlers after a female officer won a landmark sex-discrimination case showing that the system was too “tough” for some women
    .
    Police to review tests for dog handlers to avoid discrimination

    Then recruit some Tougher Women!

    She wants to be a Dog Handler BTW

    - but its all a bit too much for her....

    Cant see why she should get a special dispensation just because she is a woman....

    Its fact of life that many of us would 'like' to follow particular career paths or specialise within the one we have

    - and just might not have the skills set required to do it

    Life's a Bitch

    - get over it!

    Why do we have to be treated to the latest rubbishy anecdote from the Daily Mail or the Daily Torygraph?

    We know their agenda, we know Cattlepest's agenda, so this is all a thundering bore, and a waste of site-space.

    Zoo, along with most the thread Cattlepest starts.

    Yes. It's not Politics. It's not Irish. It's not even interesting. It belongs in the bin.

    Indeed. It's from the UK. That's why it's in the UK section.

    This is ridiculous. When they are treated equal, they complain of discrimination. So what is it they want?

    You are not required to read anyone's posts OJ

    - you are perfectly free to ignore them

    Though maybe you would just like to see an echo chamber here...?

    The judge did say that the test must be either modified or its necessity justified.
    The latter is reasonable. The former is only "fair" if the physical demands are reduced for men as well.
