One Woman For Every Fire Engine

Oh hang on wait, I broke a nail!

Oh hang on wait, I broke a nail!

Thanks to political correctness local authorities in England will now be making it compulsory to  assign one woman fire fighter to every fire engine. Local councils are striving to “achieve recruitment targets of at least 15 per cent for women in operational roles” to meet the needs of the people. What friggin needs? If I am trapped in a fire I want some burly hunk of a fireman throwing me over his shoulder and rescuing me , not some burly hunk of a fire woman (I have my pride to think about, people!). Political correctness is fine as long as it doesn’t pose a safety risk or stop some burly male hunk rescuing me. Why can’t we just have the best people for the job, in those jobs? The world would be such a better place. At present fewer than one in ten firefighters are female.
