Fight! Fight! Fight!

A police watchdog inspector claims the Home Office is paying him less than a black female colleague because he is a white man and to have reduced her salary would have caused his bosses “reputational damage”.

He took the job at the pay offered so sympathy is rather missing. However, the most lovely catfight:

Wendy Williams, who led the inquiry into the Windrush scandal, was appointed 15 months before Mr Parr to the same post of HM Inspector of Constabulary on a salary of more than £185,000.

However, Mr Parr, a former Royal Navy officer and Rear Admiral, took his HMI post in 2016 on a salary of £133,983 job – nearly 37 per cent less than Ms Williams – when former prime minister Theresa May was Home Secretary.
….
Sir Tom Winsor, the chief HMI of police, was already on a salary of £195,000 to £199,000 and Zoe Billingham, another HMI, was also on an equivalent scale to Ms Williams, at between £185,000 and £189,000.

The birds are on more – at the same level – than the bloke.

  1. Bloke in North Dorset

    I’m more concerned that they are being paid so much. Its a merry-go-round where the people in Government pay themselves ever increasing amounts and justify it to themselves because they’re all important people. With the economy crashed perhaps some wage cuts might be in order: say 30% for everyone in government over 100K? Of course it needs to be banded, but I’m sure we could make it work.

  2. White man paid more than black woman for the same work a savage indictment on society and the patriarchy that must be sorted out and fast

    Black woman paid more than white man for same work ok. Because. Reasons

    Mr Parr has already said that he thought his salary was acceptable, he just doesn’t see why he should be paid less than someone else for the same work. After all there are only 5 of them, it’s hardly difficult to keep track

  3. Why are these buffoons paid at all? What do they actually do? They are probably worth a pack of fish fingers per annum

  4. So Much For Subtlety

    You know, in fairness, it is reasonable to pay Black women more. There are so few of them that can do the work on that level.

    Whereas Whites who can are not that rare and White Rear-Admirals are two a dozen.

  5. The birds are on more – at the same level – than the bloke.

    Since the role appears to consist of being almost useless, perhaps this is fair. If they’re twice as shit we’re getting a bargain.

  6. Why did a police watchdog get involved in the Windrush “scandal”? Was there a crime involved? Did police forces have any involvement? Are these inspectors mere woke bandwaggon-jumpers?

  7. They both appear to be doing exactly the same job. I was under the impression that paying differing amounts between men and women for identical jobs was illegal. Should someone prosecute the Home Office?

  8. “Mr Parr, a former Royal Navy officer and Rear Admiral,”

    As if a Rear Admiral is not an officer in the RN. And surely he keeps the title, too?

  9. Maybe Rear Admiral was to do with other than RN rank.

    None of them should be paid and their “jobs” should not exist.

  10. He took the job at the pay offered so sympathy is rather missing

    If that applied to everyone then fair enough, but it doesn’t.

  11. This is just about the individual reservation wage, isn’t it?

    Parr accepted the job at the rate offered, as the offer was what was required to tempt a Rear Admiral. What’s the wages for Rear Admirals? Seems to be between 110~128/-.

    As far as the dollys go, what were they doing, and being paid, before?

    But yes, the dumb fuck (one T. May, for the avoidance of doubt) created a right mess.

  12. Do the figures include Wendy’s earnings from the “Wendy’s Wild Shemales” movies? Polly is going for an audition once lockdown is over

    Good point.
    Personally I hope her salary gets cut – not his raised
