(not satire – it’s the UK today!)
When she was Home Secretary, Theresa May 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 in 2012. But in 2014, Theresa May suddenly decided to implement some of the more controversial changes recommended in the report – including this part:
The Disabled Police Association said injured and disabled officers would be ‘substantially disadvantaged’ by the changes:
They were ignored. And as always – little of this was 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.
Not to mention our brave emergency services, police officers, nurses, paramedics, fire fighters …
Please feel free to comment. And share. Thanks:
