Obscene Payouts? (compensation)

  hssutton 14:19 25 Nov 2008

After all the financial misery that many of the British people are suffering or are about to suffer, I read the following

The Assistant Commissioner will retire from the Metropolitan Police force immediately, and - as well as the race claim payout of £300,000 - he will also be entitled to a lump sum pension payment of £522,000 and an index-linked pension of £85,000 a year.

Sir Ian officially leaves his post. The Metropolitan Police Commissioner,is to receive a golden handshake of about £295,000 - the remainder of his salary had he fulfilled his five-year contract. On top of this Sir Ian will receive a lump sum pension payout of £672,000 and an index-linked pension of £126,000 a year.

If that is discrimination can I have some?

its wrong it will send the wrong message to employers making then scared to employ ethnics incase of racial allegations of lack promotion.

Obscene - likely to deprave or corrupt.

Is that really likely in this case, unless he's going to use it to bribe his erstwhile colleagues for some nefarious purpose?

some may use this example to play the race card as they are not good enough for promotion.

promotion goes on merit not race.

According to the BBC news he withdrew the alleged race discrimination claim & settled for the money..now theres a man of principle

There is NO justification on whatever scale anyone wants to shout here for a wage of that amount regardless of position, this is sheer abuse on any scale!! these dont know what its like to earn £1000 per month,as i can respect there posistion there is absolutly NO WAY they should get these benefits as well as a SERIOUS wage..its ALL tax payers you know..you & i paying for them...BUT again another MOCK in the system & nothing gets done no deductions no sense of abuse..page gets turned over next week...nothing heard of again..rest my case...

should we start a protest with parlament..? & get no where..?

Seems that Sir Ian resigns, but still gets paid. Not many of us can do that! Some may say, if he had a five-year contract, then he owes them!

Why just pick out these two individuals, you only need to look at some of the pay-outs and previous contractual perks being given to financial wizards and overseers who managed to make some massive mis-judgements. And not just the UK.
