According to an Article from the Daily Express (see it here) the Crown Prosecution Service has paid out £56,000 in bonuses to staff who came into work in the heavy snow in early February. Two hundred and twenty four of the one thousand London Staff made it into work and are getting a £250 bonus for their dedication in going "the extra mile". A spokeswoman said the bonus was only paid out to workers in London and was added to their March pay packet from a special fund that each region has to give awards for effort for staff.
Going the extra mile! I wonder how much bonus our boys and girls in Iraq or Afghanistan get when the extra mile they go involves being hit by something a little bit more dangerous than a few snowflakes?
