  2. Pension - Losers Support Thread

    On the subject of losers……… I see we have lost another bit of the CRTP, and my pay has gone done again this month. Also see that Mrs May has proposed overnight allowance to be £50, flat payment, even if shared accommodation is provided…..use to be £80. Keeping volunteering and your pay will decrease in the future!
  3. Very last pay slip

    Yes you are correct but I stated an 18yr old joining today would need to work to 60yrs to get a full pension Full pension=100% for them at age 60yrs………….at age 55yrs they would lose 25%, so not a full pension, however you want to work it out. ……………so working 30yrs on the front line will be nothing in years to come, that was my point in general, thanks. Have a happy retirement and live life to the full……...….don't read this site!
  4. Very last pay slip

    Yeap, 42 yrs for an 18yr old joining today to get a full pension…..………………….you had the good times Zulu, just be glad you have retied and got your money.

    I have heard of several people who have been refused assistance …………what happens if Fed cover costs and then it is proved in court the officer is lying and is committed to prison, do the Fed recoup their money…..ie our subs?
  8. Pensions

    All protected………..it is easy to say these things when the changes don't apply to them……..Fact. If everyone had to take a hit, current & retired then things would be different. At the end of the day it is all down to saving money and how they do it is open to debate!

    Save your £300 wisely………….

  11. Pensions

    Where do I find the Alton Towers discounts……………………..I fancy that, better than nothing. The young ones don't give a dam, the protected are alright, the only ones I have heard anything from are the middle third……....I will think of myself in the future and don't give a dam about anyone else………..11yrs to do and I am off back to my homeland, Scotland
  12. Election and political debate 2015

    The purdah period typically begins six weeks before the scheduled election, in each authority on the day the notice of election is published; for the 2015 General and local elections purdah will begin on Monday 30 March.[2] Purdah has been imposed in ministerial guidance since at least the early 20th century reflecting an earlier "self-denying ordinance", and has considerable moral authority, its breach carrying with it in worst cases the possibility of actions for abuse of power and misconduct in public office. Otherwise its lack of statute or common law means different local authorities adopt different standards as to the extent to which they observe the convention,[3] and executives are always mindful of the possibility of decisions being open to judicial review on the grounds of legitimate expectations, breach of natural justice, or procedural impropriety if purdah is breached. Where observed by executive officers purdah bars entering into any transactions or carrying out any works which would clearly, directly conflict with thestated intentional commitments (manifesto) of the cabinet or shadow cabinet in any authority. When local elections are being held at the same time as a general election this higher standard is usually applied.[4] At the national level, major decisions on policy are postponed until after the purdah period, unless it is in the national interest to proceed or a delay would waste public money. The Cabinet Office issues guidance before each election to civil servants, including those in the devolved national parliaments and assemblies.[1] Purdah also continues after the election during the time in which new MPs and ministers are sworn in. In the event of an inconclusive election result, purdah does not end until a new government forms. When no party has an overall majority, it may take some time before a minority or coalition government is formed. Section 2 of the Local Government Act 1986 prohibits the publication by local authorities of material which in whole or in part appears to be designed to affect public support for a political party. ………………I had never heard of this saying, until I started to work in a department with council workers and they kept going on about it. I don't think it applies to police as we should be impartial at all times.
  13. Election and political debate 2015

    Is that not partly due to zero hrs contacts & the age children left school changed so they were all taken off the unemployment numbers at the same time…….. Living standards are up for the OAPs, they are the only ones who have money and good pensions (like you Zulu). Went to garden centre today and full of old folk buying stuff and a lot have got good suntans………they are living the dream that we will never see due to their disposable incomes. Just read that Tory letter signed by 100 top people………….no wonder they want a Tory government so they don't have to pay Corporation Tax i.e. philip green's wife lives in Monaco so he paid her £1.5m last year, paid no tax!………..so the posh party looking after their posh mates!
  14. Pensions

    I can't complain about our local Fed, they do reply, they say how it is and don't beat about the bush…….sometimes I don't think they get it right and they could shout louder at what the CC is doing but in the main they do a good job. It is the National Fed who are a disgrace at this time under Mr White.
  15. Pensions

    Spoke with our Local Fed and they have stated that they are taking the full pension issues to an independent QC, not National Fed, for advice and they will publish full details in due course. It will cost some money but money well spent to get totally independent advice. ………..well, can't argue with this. This is the start or end or the challenge………..will update when received.
