Just as their senior colleagues were burdened with excess tax charges on their pensions,
This from the man who wants to stop anyone gaining tax relief on their pensions Unless, of course, the cash is wasted on the ‘Tater Master Plan.
Oh, and this?
The real decline in pay exceeds 25 per cent.
The association’s annual representative meeting 2022 in Brighton this week passed a motion pointing out that doctors’ pay has fallen against RPI (retail price index) by up to 30% since 2008
RPI tends to run hotter than CPI. By, umm, up to 1, maybe 1,5% actually. Meaning that some goodly chunk to all of this fall in “real” wages is because the doctors are trying to use an inflation measure that no one else does any more.
But of course an accountant and political economist would never mention that if the story was to propagandistic benefit now, would he?
