Spent convictions on CRB checks

The law states that convictions are "spent" after a period of time.  However when a CRB check is done, every misdemeanor is reported even if it occured 20-30 years previously.  Unless the conviction is for either physical or sexual abuse, there should be absolutely no need for an employer to know about such matters.

Cut down Health & Safety Regulations – Cemeteries and graveyards

Local Councils (for Cemeteries) and Churches (for graveyards) are required to conduct an regular "test" on every gravestone in their cemetery or graveyard. (I think it is annually).

The test involves pulling and pushing the stone to ensure it will not topple.  If it is found to be slightly loose, it is then pulled over completely and laid flat.

The purpose of this test is to ensure that no-one gets hurt by a falling gravestone and that the authorities can't be sued.
