Rosie Mac’s Testimonial to IODPA
I found a group of people, now named ‘IODPA’
I listened very carefully to what they had to say
This group is full of members sharing research and advice
I’ve found that every single member is very, very nice.
They spoke of many cases of the IOD retired
And how a few Police Forces have seemingly conspired
To reduce as many as they could of IOD paid pensions
Their ‘goings on’ so blatant they’ve attracted much attention
Some Forces methods of ‘reviews’ unlawful, even tricky
Their intended ‘victims lists’ well show that they’ve been very picky.
High bandings are the ones that they will always, always choose
That’s because they are the ones that have the most to lose
Terrific legal help we have with IODPA
And many ‘ripped off’ Pensioners got chance to have their say
Appeals, JR’s and other legal work has now been done
And in almost all of those the IOD pensioner won
It seems a little knowledge now can go a long, long way
And those offending Forces are going to have to pay
ALL the DUE IOD pensions, with backdating adding interest
The Forces will soon learn that doing ‘reviews’ is not best
As we all know the membership of IODPA is growing
The difference they are making now so large that it is showing
As word gets round about the group and everything they’ve done
All bullying and harassment by the Forces will be gone.
It is my fondest hope that one day soon ALL officers will know
That an Injury On Duty has a legal way to go
There are written Regulations about pensions for that cause
And how membership in IODPA will prevent a Forces ‘claws’.
