Pay progression - increments under threat

According to this advert in The METRO Newspaper today, the next generation of Bobby can look forward to pay from £22,000 all the way through to £36,000 ..... BUT CAN THEY?

Our Coalition Government last year decided that "Pay Progression" otherwise known to us as INCREMENTS are ‘antiquated and deeply unfair’ and should be phased out

Treasury officials stressed that the changes will not abolish pay scales in the public sector, but they will mean that staff will not automatically go up a pay grade simply for serving out another year. SEE LAST YEAR'S NEWS ARTICLE ON THIS but that is not reflected in the wording used in today's MET POLICE advert which shows a new Constable's pay scales ranging from £22,000 to £36,000 and not a word in there about BUT "you will not automatically go up a pay grade simply for serving out another year!"

Mr Osborne said last year 'So we will end automatic pay progression in the civil service by 2015/6. And we are working to remove automatic pay rises simply for time served in our schools, NHS, prisons and police.'

ONE EXEMPTION ONLY

Only the armed forces will be exempt from the changes.

Presumably, then, MP's pay won't be increased annually? After all, isn't that just an pay rise for no other reason than the fact they're still an MP for another year? MP's seem to forget that they too are public servants.

And, no, I won't be holding my breath.
I have seen the truth and it makes no sense.

ninjamonk,

The words snouts and troughs come to mind. One comment I read was trying to justify it by saying "we need to attract good people to be MP's". That's worked well in the past, hasn't it? The place seems full if self aggrandising, pocket filling, cheating charlatans. No other profession is less deserving of the term "honourable member". Despicable piece of excrement would be more accurate.

MP's pay should be linked to the national average salary and rise or fall accordingly. That would give them an incentive to improve living standards for everyone, not just themselves.

I'll stop now. I'm beginning to froth at the mouth :D
