What is the ‘Bankside Babble’?
Well mostly it’s simply a collection of my thoughts and opinions, sometimes work related, often not work related but always honest and well-meant.
I first came to the blog world a few years ago, I needed an avenue to vent my spleen about things that annoyed me whilst still a serving police officer (Tsk! Tsk!). My old pocket-book notes from the Ashfordly Police Station Blog are now gathering dust in a broom cupboard of the soon to be demolished police station but that, as they often say, is progress!
And the fishing connection? Simply because angling happens to be my #1 pastime and, sitting by a stream, riverbank, canal or pond with a fishing rod is a great source of personal relaxation, it also gives you time to think. So is the blog all about fishing? The simple answer is no. Some fishy content may be found from time to time however, I include anything and everything that interests, or angers me (see blog posts).
Sometimes the posts may appear like soapbox missives however, unlike a lot of people (especially many in management) , I actually say what I think and I think what I say. You won’t get any sunshine blown up your arse for the sake of personal popularity here… For further information see my biography page.
Dedicated to those I love, those I have known & those I am yet to meet. If you don’t fall into one of those groups it’s ok, you can read it any way…
