MPs call for '32% salary increase'

15 posts in this topic

Lets be honest. If we all voted on our salaries we'd always vote for a pay rise as well. In this instance it is in severely bad taste with what they are enforcing on the rest of us.

I'll happily accept a 32% increase. :D

Oh wait, they mean for themselves. :O:rolleyes:

Like many industries, they should really face the prospect of a pay cut. Many people in my industry (and others) have had to face this reality, why should these tosspots not face the same? Especially given their performance? Isn't it meant to be a fairly vocational job? Combined with their expenses, they are still on a good screw. They make me puke.

Not just a pay cut but complete compliance with the Inland Revenue rules on "wholly and exclusively" I STILL think they don'y get it on expenses. I have great admiration for what most MPs in all parties do for their constituents, for the various Parliamentary committees and so on. The majority of them though, especially those on the Tory extreme right and Labour extreme left can be ***** of the highest order.

Link the wages of MPs to those of non senior civil servants. They won't want to give the civil servants huge pay rises like the tempation for NHS or Teachers so this will control MPs wages to inflation or less.

They were asked in a survey, which isn't quite the same as 'they have asked for an increase'.

In 2012 they voted for a pay freeze for this year. (3 years of 0% so far I think).

Quite - in an anonymous survey they were asked what they thought would be a reasonable amount to be paid.

I doubt many people believe they are overpaid for the services they provide.

I think we've always been in agreement on this one John, there is a perfectly good expenses policy outlined by HMRC, if it's good enough for us plebs in aught to be good enough for them. It would save an absolute fortune in both payout and administration cost.
