    I think you may be right Giles.


    I think my attitude and lack of respect for the fine details of the rule book might count against me. My era was closer to Life on Mars than the current regime.

    Quattro? Nearer to the Mk 3 Cortina from the first series

    Sometimes knowledge is diluted as it is passed from Observer to new Observer and myths and bad habits start to creep in, re- evaluation of Observers does help to keep the standard high, but "mystery shopper" training is a cheap way to up your game.
    Like the Navy phycologist. We all knew there was one for the interview, so we were on our guard. The group of candidates were collected by taxi from the train station. We went through all the classroom evaluative tests, then the physical tests, then were ushered in, one at a time, to be quizzed by this girl with a white coat, who probed our inner minds....then we were taken back to the train station by taxi again. The taxi driver was a nice chap who was interested in how we had got on through the process as he was a regular driver for the Navy.....


    It was later after being accepted that I found out the taxi driver was the phsycologist, of course we had all dropped our guard by then.
