Senior British Policeman Wants Mandatory Drug Testing at Work

The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police is calling for mandatory drug-testing at work.

Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe says that anyone failing a drug test and refusing to get help should face the sack.

He wants it to cover all occupations, but the special focus would be on teachers, transport staff and health staff working in intensive care.

    I know traditionally no one comments on the 24-7 feed, but if ever a story called for a Fuck You That's Why this is it. I would kick the douchebag in the balls if given the opportunity.
