Police Federation accuses May of lying about police pay at PMQs

"May told MPs that, if you take into account progression pay, pay rises and the increase in the income tax threshold,
someone who was a new police officer in 2010 will have seen their post-tax pay increase by £9,000, a real-terms rise of 32%."
I weary of trying to decipher Tory government's concoctions
What does she mean?


What she is saying is that if you want to keep pace with inflation you need to constantly climb the career ladder and pay as little tax as possible. It's the Tory way. Run to stand still.

She's trying to make out that it's OK that a police officer of "x" years experience is paid less now, once inflation is taken into account, than 7 years ago because they are paid more than when they were a rookie. Of course rookies are now paid less than they used to be but.....oh look! Tax cuts!

It's a charade
regular people pay in other ways

Potter: ...and all because a few starry-eyed dreamers like Peter Bailey stir 'em up and fill their head with a lot of impossible ideas. Now, I say --

Bailey: Just a minute – just a minute. Now, hold on, Mr. Potter. Just a minute. Now, you're right when you say my father was no business man. I know that. Why he ever started this cheap, penny-ante Building and Loan, I'll never know. But neither you nor anybody else can say anything against his character, because his whole life was -- Why, in the twenty-five years since he and Uncle Billy started this thing, he never once thought of himself. Isn't that right, Uncle Billy? He didn't save enough money to send Harry to school, let alone me. But he did help a few people get outta your slums, Mr. Potter. And what's wrong with that? Why -- here, you're all businessmen here. Don't it make them better citizens? Doesn't it make them better customers?

You, you said that they -- What'd you say just a minute ago? They had to wait and save their money before they even thought of a decent home. Wait? Wait for what?! Until their children grow up and leave them? Until they're so old and broken-down that -- You know how long it takes a workin' man to save five thousand dollars? Just remember this, Mr. Potter, that this rabble you're talking about, they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath? Anyway, my father didn't think so. People were human beings to him, but to you, a warped, frustrated old man, they're cattle. Well, in my book he died a much richer man than you'll ever be.

Potter: I'm not interested in your book. I'm talkin' about the Building and Loan.

Bailey: I know very well what you're talking about. You're talking about something you can't get your fingers on, and it's galling you.

George Bailey: Address to the Board of Directors -- Bailey Building and Loan Society

Tories have responded by telling their MPs they don't have to turn up to Opposition Day debates any more.

So grown up, aren't they?
