I don't give a shit about spoilers.
I know someone who will leave the room if you're talking about something he hasn't seen or read yet, which is hilariously useful.

You would say that.
Why should a civil servant in Sunderland earn the same as one in Milton Keynes. The cost of living in the Northeast is lower.
(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:06, Reply)
Because they're doing the same job.
Exactly the same job, with the same interviews, requirements, policys, systems, experience required etc.

And you're talking about people on 18-30k a year effectivly getting a pay cut while all the high earners are exempt. Stupid.
(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:13, Reply)
Taxpayers money innit.
Easy saving for the govt - popular with everyone who isn't a civil servant. Lowest common denominator politics.

What's the difference between the above and London Weighting?
(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:17, Reply)
London weighting was because the wage of a lot of NHS staff was below the living wage for NHS staff in london.
It's the difference between topping up and pulling down.
I don't agree with the london weighting, I think it would be much better to have more available and affordable Key housing within the M25.
(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:20, Reply)
But it's there to offset the difference in the cost of living.
So what's the difference between that and paying less in cheaper areas?
(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:22, Reply)
Because most of these poor cunts earn fuck all as it is.

(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:23, Reply)
That's not the point.
The point is whether you should earn less in cheaper parts of the country.
(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:27, Reply)
Because it's based on the principal of everyone struggling the same amount
not everyone being as comfortable as each other. And that from ultimatly an employer is callous and immoral.

What do you want then?

There are better paid jobs, try and get one.

Don't get me wrong
it's a piss poor indictment of where our priorities lay but if the money isn't enough, do something else.

The government do a very good job of presenting the whole of the public sector as hate figures
They like to cherry pick the information so that people think that across the board all public sector workers have the holidays of teachers, the pay of council leaders, the pension of Fred Goodwin, etc. I DONT GET THESE PERKS IN MY PRIVATE SECTOR JOB SO WHY SHOULD THEY???

I don't get these perks yet I pay for yours.

You are entitled to a vote every five years
Which may or may not have some bearing on who makes some of the decisions on how it is spent. That is all.

Maybe.

(, Thu 12 Apr 2012, 16:33, Reply)
Also, public sector workers pay tax and NI too.
They may not be able to draw much of it back as pensions though.

They'll draw back more than I will.

I got told off today for working on something instead of working on something else, something thats really cool and EVERYONE WHO HAS SEEN IT said "awsome"
But new manager told me off, gave a technical reason thats bullshit and simplistic as to why it was crap, and told me to get on with something else.

BOAT lol.
(!)

Actually I am rather fond of boats. My father used to have them and i used to holiday at Bursledon shipyard on the Hamble as a young boy, pissing about in dinghies and fishing for crabs with bacon rind.

My childhood was like Swallows and Amazons only with shitloads of MASSIVE DROUGES.

Upon inspection they all wear snapbacks and Supreme box logo tees.
