What law is being broken
by having a Yes sticker in your car?

I work for my local authority
and we have been asked not to discuss the referendum or wear any badges in working hours.

I’ve never worked in the
public sector but never once in the private sector have I been allowed to decorate company vehicles stating my support for any political position. Seems fair, and it should be the same for the public sector.

I think staff should be able
to wear what they want and if it irritates others they can settle it outside at playtime or hometime.

This is a common sense
proposal. I spent all my working life in the NHS. I was in no doubt that as I was paid from the public purse, I was a public servant. As such I had no right to force my political views on anyone. Whichever side one supports it should be kept well and truly out of the workplace.

Does this apply to staff
displaying trades union badges? It should.

Employees must abide by
the rules set out by the council that owns the land.

I think banning a sticker on
an owner’s car in a council car park is going a bit too far.

It would be interesting to 
know if there have been any incidences of vandalism on cars bearing stickers on either side.

What if somebody had a
“don’t know” sticker on their car?
