Prison officers face disciplinary action for organising Poppy Day collection

Two prison officers face disciplinary action for collecting money for a
Remembrance Sunday tribute.


Steve Baines and Paul Leigh, warders at Walton Jail in Liverpool, have
been warned they are in breach of prison rules because of the £400 staff
whip round.

Traditionally the prison has paid for a wreath to be laid at Liverpool's
Remembrance service at St John's Gardens by uniformed off duty officers.

Officers and prisoners died when the prison was bombed in World War II.

FFS!!

A spokeswoman for HMP Liverpool said that as a wreath will have been laid in London by the service, it would not be repeated locally.
Gobsmacked! I cannot believe that the Prison service will only be laying one solitary wreath.

Disgusting. I've also heard a rumour that a central London University has banned the wearing of poppys. Not 100% on this, but that to, if true, is disgusting.

Banned from wearing a Poppy?

I ain't in Civvie strasse yet, but this callsign will not be banned. And if anyone says anything, I will wear MORE poppies.

I have never wanted to be a civvie more in my life.

Ha haha hahhahahahah (laughs manically).

Seriously, someone needs a slap for this. And it isn't the two lads who raised £400. Well done to them for raising the money.

I'd defy anyone to stop me wearing a poppy anywhere that I wanted. I always wonder who gives these people the right to lay down these sorts of rules. Were I a member of the POA I'd be sure thyat every prison had a whip round to buy a poppy wreath for the local cenptaph and name all the prison officers as organisers. Let them sort that out.

I can hear the horses hooves, the band playing and the waggon wheels spinning in the ruts.

If I am quick enough, do you think that I can jump on board and be outraged too?

Too late, you bleeding heart, we are all on it. The wagon is full, now push off.

'They were told to hand the money over to the prison so it could be converted into a cheque from HMP Liverpool.'
What for? Couldnt they just pay the RBL in cash? As the guy said, to make it look like the money was from the Prison.

I am outraged, but not shocked.
