I work in the MoD. Philip Hammond, the Defence Secretary, has stated that while his troops in Afghanistan are limited to 1% there is no way he will accept the pay rise. I SHOULD ****ING WELL HOPE HE WOULDN'T.
It seems the carefully cooked up IPSA scheme is going to backfire and all the big piggys (ministers) are backing away.
The baby piglets though? Gimme gimme gimee... oh, and leave our expenses alone as well... because 'we're worth it'
Would I accept an 11% pay-rise? Damned certain I would... but that wouldn't make it right, would it?
