Two women police officers were yesterday handed the right to extra bonus payments for working at night – even though they only work day shifts.
The two officers, both working mothers, should get the extra money because their childcare commitments stop them from working anti-social hours, a tribunal ruled.
Denying them the allowance for working at night – which men can do – is sex discrimination, it said.
Its judgement means West Midlands police must now pay thousands of pounds in special allowances to single mother Susan Blackburn and her colleague, mother of two Victoria Manley, both of whom work part-time.
The cost to the taxpayer of paying police officers and other public sector workers extra allowances may run into hundreds of millions of pounds.
Ah yes, the old feminist definition of “equality”; namely, special treatment for women.
“I could work nights, like men do, but I damn well won’t, because I’m a woman, but pay me for working nights anyway. Me me me! Pay me! PAY ME! Give me money, can’t you see I have a CUNT for fucks sake! Give. Give! GIVE! GIIIIIIVE!!! RAAAGH! I am woman, hear me extort!!”

Amanda Platell in the Daily Mail said in reference to the WPC who was shot, along with the other one that died something to the effect that her repeated breaking down in court was a good case for women officers not working on the streets.
I wonder if this means that she will support women police officers getting the same money while the male ones get shot, assaulted and maimed for the same money.
Why is it not turned around and stated that men are denied the opportunity to be the primary carer for their children and should be allowed to work the same times as these mothers in order to look after their children??
All the male officers should refuse to work nights and state they are the primary carer for their children. They should also sue the government for sex discrimination for not doing enough to promote fathers as primary carers.
What a world!!

What a mess. This is what happens when you challenge the natural order of things. Maybe the end is near.

There really was no “hear me roar” to begin with.

They wouldn’t post my comment in the Mail, so can I add it here?
All I said was that I demand the salary of Richard Branson. I know I don’t have his talent, brains or work ethic, but that’s NOT MY FAULT. It was a sheer accident of birth and force of circumstances that resulted in me being an ordinary bloke with a low-key job on an average salary. So just because I am not able to do Branson’s job, is no reason to deny me his salary, right?
Now what do you think the Mail could possibly have seen in this comment to censor it?
