Heartless government cut pay of police officers injured in line of duty. And threaten the sack.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today!)

Looks like the Tories are taking revenge on the police after their falling out over the plebgate controversy.

The Tory-led coalition government has decided that police officers who are disabled or injured in the line of duty should face a pay cut. Or the sack.

A report into changes in police officers’ pay and conditions was completed way back in 2012. But now government ministers have suddenly decided to implement some of the more controversial changes recommended in the report – including this part:

police pay cut

The Disabled Police Association says injured and disabled officers will be ‘substantially disadvantaged’ by the changes:

Pay reforms: Disabled officers ‘substantially disadvantaged’

As always – very little of this has been reported in the mainstream press.

Which is exactly what always happens whenever there is any news about how despicably the sick and disabled are treated by this government.

  1. Anyone who knows me will be aware I am no fan of the police (especially South Wales Police) However, when employees are injured in the line of duty, they should expect their employer to make provisions for them. The fact that this government are abandoning the police in their hour of need speaks volumes. God help the Tories if the plebs start rioting and target the Houses of Parliament; I can see the police just standing back and letting the rioters do their worst!
