Its market forces. Why should we spend any more taxpayers funds than are necessary.

I second Jono

If you take a job that pays X then you should not complain later that X is not enough. If you feel your not paid enough look around for a new job. Simple Really.

If HMCG then finds that it can not fill some of its positions or retain staff then it will have to at the package it offers.

I would happily see a reduction in Mps wages - less useless Police Officers and less tax collectors along with the grounding of Police helicopters and the removal of litter wardens and all jobs worths in general....................

Then the Coastguards would be paid what they deserve!!!

do you really think that many people (who could be saved) die in this country because of a shortage of consultants. and where would you find an extra 26 consultants anyway?

PS - I suspect your calculation is based on their gross salary - not the fully loaded cost of a consultant. So you probably get about 10!

YES!!!

If you actually bother going to the various websites of the police helicopter units around the Uk you will see the majority of them are NOT used as an air ambulance but for chasing joy riders who have stolen cars worth 200!!!
