I my bollox we do, we dont get any bloody pension

We'll all new recruits do because they have to join the pension scheme.
But remember you were already paying the pension levy even though you don't get one....

Oh don't i know it and it has been pointed out numerous time as well but as usual they dont give a monkies.

So I have been thinking about this and the idea is that we will go from paying 6.5% pension per week to 12.5% per week but will no longer pay the pension levy of 7%. Thats because we serve 30 years

Now, a civil servant pays 6.5% and will only pay 6.5% but has to work 40 years.

Now, Im not great at maths, but almost doubt payments for only a quarter reduction seems harsh. Using that logic I would assume TD and Minsters must pay abou 50% minimum right?

Ehh probably not, remember within the pension levy documentation there was a loophole for certain people that let them not pay it, the first to take advantage according to the newspapers at the time were the TDs secretaries so it would not be a big jump to think the TDs got the same as their secretaries.
