Is it wise to admit on this forum that you actually attended a pissup with reggies?I was once invited to a piss up with Reggies (including SIB) and local CivPlod.
If I had a pound for every time a Regulator called the civvy Inspector 'Guv' I would have retired 25 years ago.
Just to cheer you up I retired from Plod in 1998 pensions very nice thank you.Haha, I am reasonabley bright AND have been known to dead lift the odd heavy weight as you mention it.
The only reason I’m even contemplating such a move is the fact that when I joined the Police I could retire at 56 with a bloody good pension. Now it’s 60 with a greatly reduced pension. If I were to rejoin the mob I’d be able to retire at 44(ish) with a full pension, with my former service and police pension transferred over.
