Doctor pensions - stick it to Lansley!

Whatever you think of doctors, if you believe in fairness then you should sign this E-petition.  Doctors do not expect special treatment, all they want is fairness, and the fact that government are unilaterally forcing doctors to pay far greater percentages of their income into their pensions than other workers in the public sector is grossly unfair, there is no credible argument against this I'm afraid.

Unfortunately large sections of the media have swallowed up a lot of Lansley and the DoH's lies.  Well, if Lansley and the DoH think doctors should be forced to pay 14.5% of their incomes into their pensions, then Lansley and his DoH cronies should also pay the same amount.  Currently MPs like Lansley, civil servants like those at the DoH, teachers, judges and many other public sector workers pay nowhere near the 14.5% that is being unfairly forced on doctors.

Please sign the E-Petition, post it on Twitter and Facebook, let's help force Lansley and his cronies to pay the same as doctors, let's see if they are happy to eat their own pudding.  I doubt it.

Since this is the proposed NHS pension scheme, not just doctors, you appear to be suggesting that all doctors in the NHS are paid over £110,273 per year but nobody else in the NHS gets paid as much as that.

You also ignore the fact that it is proposed that police officers on much less than £110,273 per year pay an even greater percentage of their salary into their pension scheme.

Lansley and his political cronies will not rely on their MP/ministerial pensions, they'll get looked after by their pals in big business. The attack on the NHSPS is scandalous. Lets just be clear, at the moment, The Coalition are "doing a Maxwell", milking the NHSPS to subsidise tax breaks for the likes of Vodaphone. When the scheme starts making losses, it will have been distanced from the state, hence retired staff will be told that their pensions will be cut. Danny Alexander admitted that the pension reforms were intended to make the public sector attractive to large corporates. Make no mistake, the race to the bottom has begun. TUPEing & outsourcing will result in staff losing access to the scheme, as corporates profits soar.
