    Default Gardai directed to go on career breaks by Shatter. Will the criminals also go on career breaks ?

    1000 Gardai, are to go on career breaks, so as to provide more money for the Anglo Banglo Bondholders.

    Career breaks 'aimed at reducing Garda numbers by 1,000' | BreakingNews.ie

    How will Shatter get the criminals in Ireland's thriving crime economy to go on a career break as well ?

    Does Scutter even want to do anything about the escalating crime problem in Ireland ?

    Is Ireland's criminal justice system being too supportive of those working in the booming crime sector ?

    Is this latest initiative, a step too far in stimulating and liberating crime in Ireland ?


    In my analysis Shatter is being extremely lazy in relation to the crime problem in this country. In fact, he does not care one bit about it.

    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Yet another pig in a poke.
    These Gardaí will presumably hold off on recruitment of new Gardaí. It would be better to retire the older guys which would allow for a slow and steady recruitment of new blood.

    Could they not come back at 80% of standard pay, like the nurses?

    Why does Shatter not go on a career break? He certainly has the money for one and it is high season in the Holy Land soon.

    Many Gardai could not afford a "career break", what with trying to meet their families' expectations. The Gardai do need reform. The Bible tells us you cannot serve two masters and those with divided loyalties are not the ones to institute such reforms. Shatter should honestly declare where his loyalties really lie.

    Are the Garda Reserve numbers decreasing as well? I think not.

    The criminals have shown innovative thinking around flexible work practices and have rooted out out-dated agreements which are no longer fit for purpose, in rostering and overtime

    They have taken severe cuts and have nothing left to give

    They work for free. They probably save the state money as all reserves do.

    These guys are really amazing. When in opposition they lambasted the then Government for increasing the number of Gardai at too slow a rate, and then when they become the Government themselves, they reduce the numbers.

    It's like a merry go round for a group of cossetted pigs who never have to get off, they merely swap places.

    Another article concerning this.

    Cuts force gardai to look at shedding 1,000 officers - National News - Independent.ie

    The break will allow gardai to take up other employment here or seek job opportunities in overseas markets such as Australia and Canada.
    Gardai....Shatter thinks that some of you may wish to make a Noonanesque "lifestyle choice".

    The Minister for closing Garda Stations seems to be soft on crime,and hard on irony.
