Voting cold for police officers supporting their fallen colleague, shame on you
Horrible to see this voted down. Virgin is trying to help (cant stress how much i hate Branson but they are trying) helps even a little for police officers to be able to attend the funeral of a colleague murdered trying to help others . If you dont like Police Officers have a good look in the mirror theres a strong possibility you are the problem

Not a good day for non-police officers to travel without a ticket - You will get arrested

me thinks its an awesome idea
Plenty of times on HUKD has a person shared a deal to bring matters such as this to people's attention and many, many times that deal has reached the top of the daily deals board, meaning even more people see it - namely Poppy appeals, Help for Heroes charity, discounted rail fares for disabled people and plenty more. I voted hot on this - police officers should be made aware of this 'offer'. Shame it's only for one day.
I think it's fair to assume that police officers will be aware of this without having to see it on HUKD. It was on the UK's leading crime and policing news site yesterday. policehour.co.uk/201…th/

I don't think the cold votes are anything to do with anti police/Virgin sentiment. This isn't a deal, it's only of any use to police officers and they will already be aware of it. It's a totally pointless post.

Maybe you shouldn't assume. Thanks OP for bringing this to my attention as I'm an officer and I was not aware of this! Maybe because I don't bother with the likes of Facebook and other social media platforms! Heat added

It's also been in almost every local newspaper. Don't you talk to your colleagues? It really doesn't say much for your investigative skills. Have you thought about an alternative career? And, if you were not aware of it, how come you knew it was on "the likes of Facebook and other social media platforms!"

To be honest with you I've been far too busy working and solving crimes to read newspapers! I can't see why you describe this as a pointless post, I was merely pointing out that not all individuals use the likes of social media therefore I find posts like this as informative. Not having a go at you!

why should a Police Officer get free travel, will Virgin be offering free travel to the funerals of the other people killed, the ones that weren't paid to protect this country!

You really are so far up your own aren't you. Maybe not everyone spends their entire day on deals websites like you do, so how about just winding your neck in and giving it a rest.

As to your first point, don't be such a pratt. As to your second, even ignoring the practical issues, who says they haven't?

why??



Probably cos it's only for a small group people.
Publicity stunt.
FYI It is for serving officers only, retired officers are not included.

I cannot believe some of the comments on here, nor the cold voting. There are a lot of miserable people on HUKD.

Good luck finding a virgin round my neck of the woods......Beduff.

They are trolls, just here to wind people up. Sadly the HUKD admin/mod team can't find their **** with both hands so cracking down on trolling is an impossible task for them.
Ok, if you're a police officer and on rest days, you may not have seen this gesture from Virgin and well done to the OP for highlighting it. Also, National Express are providing free transport for current and retired officers on the day and is available with a code and its possibly on their website. Well done to both companies I say. The camaraderie and commitment that officers put in to their jobs means that there will be many who wish to support PC Palmer's family, even if they did not know him personally. These gestures show there is understanding for that and should be applauded.

​Actually I wasn't aware of it until I saw it on this post.
If there's a deal on tampax would you vote cold because it's only for women?
shockingly cynical action from a failing company desperate for public goodwill.

Why offer it now? Why not when other police have been killed? Why not offer it all the time?

Anyone supporting this, is supporting the exploitation of a tragedy for commercial gain.

No, i wouldn't. That would be available to 50% of the population, and wouldn't have been publicised in just about every news outlet including the leading police one. For clarification, i did not vote the offer of free travel cold. I respect our policemen and women and think this is a great offer on the part of Virgin (as well as good marketing). I voted this post cold. So far, we are aware of only 2 officers who only found out about the offer through it (assuming you are one). Neither of them have said they will be taking advantage of it. So that's zero people, that we know of, who will benefit from this "deal".
Er... shouldn't this be in freebies?

​Voting cold is not trolling.

I think you do not understand what trolling is.

People with different opinions to you are not trolls.

I think we all understand what trolling is perfectly well, and in this case it probably actually is, regardless of your attempts to try and sound clever.
I think it's a great idea.

Really gets on my nerves in this country when we have all this "Help our Heroes" and a heroes welcome for soldiers.
Don't get me wrong, but they do this country a great service.

But the police...
They get all the scum to deal with on a daily basis, undermaned, people constantly lying to them, policing the streets at weekends when the pubs and clubs are kicking out.
Getting spat at, shouted at, and bricks hauled at.
Dangerous situations, being run over, stabbed and in some cases shot.

Good on Virgin East Coast to support some real heroes who put their lives on the line each and every day.
As my train was held up this morning as some scrote assaulted a member of staff and police needed to be called... one of those bad movie scenes where the rest of passengers were Police officers would be funny.

You missed the point a bit there. I wasn't talking about the cold voting, I was talking about the general miserable and rude attitude a lot of people express. A lot of it aimed at other people who have done nothing wrong.

You can have a differing opinion to someone else, but you can have the decency to be polite about it. There are some repeat offenders too, sometimes to the point where you think there might actually be something wrong with them. You have to consider if the community would be better off without them, or even better if HUKD would implement disliking/downvoting comments.
