Reproduced fromPrideâ€™s Purge (Blog) an irreverent look at UK Politics
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 officersâ€™ 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 â€“ including this part:
The Disabled Police Association says injured and disabled officers will be â€˜substantially disadvantagedâ€™ by the changes:
Pay reforms: Disabled officers â€˜substantially disadvantagedâ€™
As always â€“ 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.
