This is a video interview I did with my good friend and professional colleague Tony Bleetman on the 18th November 2020.

In this video Tony takes a look back at how far the UK has come in the last twenty or so years in relation to restraint and how far ahead the UK is compared to many other countries.

Falsifying Evidence – The Responses on LinkedIn [Video]

Falsifying Evidence – The Responses on LinkedIn

Thank you to all of you who responded to the video I put up yesterday entitled ‘Being Told To Falsify Evidence (Allegedly)’.

There are some great and very interesting responses which I would urge you to read under that video as they could have serious implications for anyone being told to falsify evidence and, of course, the person telling others to do so.

I have also spoken to Daniel Darwin who is running the Statement Writing Course on the 29th October to address this issue specifically and he is adding more information on this into the course at the end of the month, and if you are interested in attending then the cost is now only £150 + vat per person and you can find out more about the course here – https://www.nfps.info/statement-writing/

Thank you to all who responded to the last video and for the valuable comments you have added in the thread.
