A very sincere well done to the officers concerned, incidents like this and the sacrifice Police Officers are prepared to make clearly demonstrate the complete lack of understanding this government have for their unique and dangerous role. In recent days the House of Commons have advertised for someone to serve coffee with a starting salary of £20,000, yet a new PC who will quite literally put their life on the line will only earn £19,000. The elite idiots is Westminster are truly clueless.

Even after all that, with London Weighting, a new Met recruit will still be earning considerably more than the fully qualified, experienced barista in the House of Commons, which is what the vacancy is for. Put another way, a "coffee server" in Hampshire won't be earning anything near £19k. Your figures are seductive, but you're not comparing like with like.
