Stephen has captured very accurately the mood and atmosphere that prevailed in the old Manchester City Police in the 1970's.
It was a time of change, when many World War Two veterans were about to leave the Police Service, to be replaced by eager young men who were keen to learn from these "old sweats" before their experiences were lost forever.
This may go some way to explain why long-established practices, some good but a lot not-so-good, were prevalent at the time.
This book should be read by all those Police Officers who served at the time, just to remind them how things used to be before the Politically Correct "numpties" took control of our Police Forces - it's a great insight into the workings of the Police at that time.
Can't wait for Stephen's follow-up books, they will probably shock you to the core.
It is an autobiographical account, however I was aghast at the statements Hayes makes concerning his views, which at no point does he suggest are views held only previously during his time as a police officer. Jamaican criminals smell especially bad? The teachers that spanked Hayes and his pals at school the hardest were gay and therefore enjoyed it? (Are you a friend of Putin?) Female police officers looking like fitness instructors and daring to think they are attractive? (GASP!!)
The book is littered with errors and makes little sense. The author jumps from topic to topic without preparing the reader, making it an irritating read. My favourite, error-packed line has to be, "Morale is at rock bottom and at the heart of the rot is the decision of Margaret Thatcher when Prime Minister to recruit university graduates." Sweet irony! Perhaps the uni grads could have helped you with that sentence Mr Hayes.
