Having trouble believing that this headline could possibly be true? What if we told you that the story was out of Paris? That's right, French riot police are threatening to strike after police chiefs decided to end the tradition of Republican Security Company (CRS) officers taking a drink with their main meal of the day.
'Nobody should object to a small drink on jobs,' union official Didier Mangione said. 'CRS officers do not have any more or less alcohol problems than anybody else in society. They should be allowed to drink in moderation. Our right to drink alcohol with our food is protected by the law and our members are very unhappy at being treated like children.' Mr Mangione added.
Indeed. The practice of having a small glass of wine or a beer with a meal was ended after officers were photographed drinking from bottles of beer and wine during recent street protests in the capital city. For more on the story, visit The Telegraph here.
