In fairness some of them do a good job. The majority would be lag lovers though. The nuns in one particular Dublin prison are a despicable bunch altogether and have been caught passing phones and other contraband over the years.
Another yoke down the country a few years back began to think he was an officer. He took to carrying a radio and one day he "stood down" staff responding to an alarm because he looked out his office window which overlooked the yard and deemed that the situation was under control. He was quietly touched on soon after.
Surely being caught bringing in contraband would be grounds for instant removal from the prison , never to return ??
A certain well known Governor would have shielded them, they all had the same thug hugging agenda. If it happened now they would be arrested and cleared.
Never a truer word spoken.
that happened ages ago!
it was some dirtbird in thunder home cafe.
the nuns should cop on! she should have been done as an accessory
Ding Dong....Is that you using a different name????????
Probably just another rookie that didn't find your condescending arrogance as inspiring as you seem to think you are.
Anyone see the package offered by the Northern Ireland Prison Service seeking 500 voluntary leavers ?
Example - an officer on £ STG 35,000 will get a taxfree lump sum of 55,500 plus 3 more payments equating to 21 months pay plus a pension of 18,800 p.a.
Already announced that those leaving will be replaced by new officers on vastly different contracts and lower pay.
how much service do they need to have to be able to leave , think i would jump at it if i got the chance the way things are going here
As far as I know it's available to everyone. It obviously won't be anything near those terms for someone with only a few years service. From talking to some of the lads up there it really only suits a few officers, the majority who took the previous package (which was much better) ended up regretting leaving I believe.
What would you do as a forty something ex PO. The twenty years you'd have done in the job would make you worse than useless. Can you imagine being back in the human world.
Boss: Morning Mr Warder, can you stack the beans in aisle 3 please.
PO: I'm early dinner horse.
Boss: Your what?
PO: and I'm on a medical in the afternoon.
Boss: a what in the afternoon.
PO: Your bullying me.
by far the funniest post I've read on this thread(nearly as funny as ding-dongs)
Well done for getting it spot on
ps Don't forget....PO: any chance of a gate pass!!!!
The NI Government is budgeting £60 million STG for the scheme , its accepted that its not as generous as the ' Patten ' scheme for voluntary leavers from the PSNI ( almost all former RUC officers ) - some of the payouts there were astronomical but that was when money was not as tight as now.
