well… For us…
There is 160-BILLION quid available for the banks.loath loan and ..errr… make money on for…errr the banks…Lol
We are being done…royally…
We are certainly going to be ‘done’… and it will hurt! What Winsor fails to grasp is that there will not be enough front line posts, attracting the Specialist Threshold Payment to for everyone to fill, if being a front line officer is the new criteria for getting paid the same as Constables at the top of the pay scale are now so… I think his plans are riven with problems and a whole slew of litigation awaits…
Hopefully ‘Saint’ Theresa May will not be able to go as far as she evidently wants to and some common sense will prevail. Some what Winsor says makes perfect sense and we all know of people who have basically ‘opted out’ of being a police officer in all but name, either because they got injured early on or, more cynically, because they have engineered themselves into a role that has nothing really to do with locking up villains, but has everything to do with the political corectness and statistical evidence gathering that is the bane of modern policing but… he surely cannot expect other hard working people who have been picked to specialise in a role, which now, it appears is judged by him (a person who has never arrested anyone) to not be worthy of being paid the going rate… and that person is expected to just take a massive kick in the financial ‘orchestra stalls’ and be happy about it… I don’t think so!!
My particular specialist role is one case in point. I am fully fit to go out in a patrol car and do that role and have done so many times, but now I have been headhunted for a role that requires more investigation, evidence gathering and interaction with the public, and less routine locking up. It is important work but, on the Winsor criteria (and despite ending up in the Custody Suite twice this week) my role does not routinely require warranted police powers so… unless I return to the trenches I am stuffed, which is a shame, because I like my job, routinely do extra without claiming overtime and think that doing it well saves lives – but who am I to judge… One would need to be trained as a lawyer to do that… Hang on! I was!!
On that front, the appointment of Winsor as head of the HMIC appears to me to be to be a classic case of a breach of natural justice.or, “…nemo judex in causa sua”. This is a Latin phrase that means, (literally) no-one should be a judge in their own cause. It is a principle of natural justice that no person can judge a case in which they have an interest. Arguably, the appointment of Winsor to oversee the very organisation he has just reviewed and recommended major changes to is a breach of natural justice He must have been approached or applied for the post of HMIC during the process of writing and publishing defending the proposed reforms of the police and he is now inextricably linked to the process. The rule is very strictly applied to any appearance of a possible bias, even if there is actually none: “Justice must not only be done, but must be seen to be done”. A lawyer would know this, I would have thought… Just saying!!
True… What if you are ordered into a role away from a post that attracts SPP? You loose money. How is that fair?
It ain’t …
But this isn’t about fairness it’s about sticking it to the cops…
And making shit loads of money in the process…
Its all part of the grand plan make the rich richer on the backs of the little people who don’t know any better.This lot wont be happy until the workers are all wearing pink overalls with a numer on their backs and paid in rice.Bring on the revolution time to fight back is approaching.
