sgtpepperband said:It is with utter contempt and disgust that we are now told that the same MP's who refused to be bound by the arbitration process (re: Police Pay negotiations) now want to award themselves a 10% increase over the next three years bringing their average salary to Â£67,000.
It must be really tough sitting in a nice warm office without the dangers of working shifts, getting assaulted, stabbed, shot at, murdered etc, etc.
"But don't worry, we will still screw you whatever which way we can, next year if you are lucky, we might give you a 2% rise, and, we will go to arbitration and draw it out for a few months so in effect we can then refuse to back date your pay and you will only get 1.5%"
See where this is going.....?
What a complete bunch of *******!
When you think about what is a fair rate of pay for police just think about what MP's get paid!
Annual MP Pay: Â£60,675
Housing Allowance over Â£23,083: TAX FREE
London Supplement: Â£2812
Car Mileage: 40p (for first 10000 miles) 25p (after 10000)
Bike Allowance: (per mile) 20p
PLUS THE BEST PENSION IN THE COUNTRY!!!
As a lot of these Tosser's will be looking for new jobs after the next (whenever) election, they'll vote it in to bump their "final salary" pensions.
Lower than whaleshite, the lot of them !!
