How much do 'underperforming' coppers who are allowed to resign and keep their pension get ?
Presumably it's considered the equivalent of the resettlement pay for MPs who lose their seat and/or redundancy pay, as they are losing an enhanced salary that went with the ministerial role.The same as soldiers. Or anyone else who has qualified for a pension by way of time served and contributions made. If you get sacked prior to your pension qualifying date, you have to wait until 65 and miss out on thousands.
A £17k additional pay off isn’t anything to do with a pension. It’s in addition to their wages and expenses.
Does anyone else get a payment for being demoted on UPP?

Generally speaking demoting people in a way that affects their salary is difficult in UK law. Ministers aren't really "sacked" despite the papers loving to use the term.Do you get a specific payment in any other public sector job for being sacked/demoted or moved sideways? If yes then fair enough.

"Ministers under 65 years old who leave their office are entitled to a quarter of their annual ministerial salary under the 1991 Ministerial and other Pensions and Salaries Act.
The golden goodbye is available regardless of whether they are sacked or resign - as long as they do not get another government job within three weeks."
You do know that it applies to all MPs in that position, not just Conservative ones?
Quite right given its taxpayers money.OK. Let me get this straight.
we should not be remotely interested in the demise of the
Prime Ministers mother.
We should, however, be intensely concerned about the wallpaper.
I think I have the hang of it now.
They got it originally because it's an elected office if an election is called then they wouldn't get redundancy notice (90 days?). As soon as an election is called then the pay stops.
Edit apostrophe failure
I take your point.
Politicians though, they're speeeshul, ain't they?
I do wonder if she's doing deals that the govt don't want people finding out about, rather than being purely contemptuous of the rules & public. Edit: and civil servants!Boris certainly lives up to his reputation as being galscially slow to respond and to take action where and when it is needed. Even with Matt Hancock he waited until he was completely backed into a corner and had nowhere else to go.
I think that he has surpassed even this in the case of Priti Patel. Her fall, when it does come, is going to be that much more difficult for him to manage while preserving some shred of integrity.
