    Well, well, no sooner have i disclosed about the ''meeting'' [above] and we learn today about a ''secret ballot'' re. strike action. To my knowledge prison officers are not permitted to strike so it will be interesting to see were this leads in the near future...

    Quote.. The Northern Ireland chairman of the Prison Officer's Association (POA) has confirmed that its members are being balloted on potential strike action.
    The union rejected a pay-increase offer of 2.5% on Wednesday.
    Finlay Spratt called the offer "a disgrace".
    Prison officers are not legally permitted to strike and the Northern Ireland Prison Service (NIPS) has urged the POA to reconsider the pay offer. unquote. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-38001794

    And then other views...
    The late, great Oscar Wilde..
    The Ballad of Reading Gaol (1898)
    Oscar Wilde
    Only lines 1-36 should be recited, as shown below


    He did not wear his scarlet coat,
    For blood and wine are red,
    And blood and wine were on his hands
    When they found him with the dead,
    The poor dead woman whom he loved,
    And murdered in her bed.

    He walked amongst the Trial Men
    In a suit of shabby grey;
    A cricket cap was on his head,
    And his step seemed light and gay;
    But I never saw a man who looked
    So wistfully at the day.

    I never saw a man who looked
    With such a wistful eye
    Upon that little tent of blue
    Which prisoners call the sky,
    And at every drifting cloud that went
    With sails of silver by.

    I walked, with other souls in pain,
    Within another ring,
    And was wondering if the man had done
    A great or little thing,
    When a voice behind me whispered low,
    ‘That fellow’s got to swing.’

    Dear Christ! the very prison walls
    Suddenly seemed to reel,
    And the sky above my head became
    Like a casque of scorching steel;
    And, though I was a soul in pain,
    My pain I could not feel.

    I only knew what hunted thought
    Quickened his step, and why
    He looked upon the garish day
    With such a wistful eye;
    The man had killed the thing he loved,
    And so he had to die.

    Freedom is not dependant on which side of a prison wall you find yourself.

    Rough place...

    Quote.. Adrian Smith from the Prison Officers Association (POA) told BBC News NI the woman was one of the newer prison officers.
    He said he believed she was attacked with a weapon "made from a razor".
    "She has an approximately three inch deep cut below her left ear," he said.
    "With the ever increasing budget cuts, I believe this will happen more often," he added. unquote.. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-39261144

    Anyone with three inch deep cut anywhere was not going to be walking out of hospital a few hours later.
