MPs need a payrise
Metro reports that Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority is to recommend a £10k payrise to the MPs. They know that it will spark comments about snouts in the trough. They don’t care.
Voters may not like it, but if you pay peanuts you get monkeys.
A monkey with a bloated bank balance is still only a monkey. Calling a salary that is three times higher than the average wage “peanuts” feels like a slap. Especially so to the “strivers” so glorified by IDS. In the meantime, our parliament of scrooges is squeezing the poor to the extent that they decide to end their lives. All in it together?
