As the incapacitated, unemployed and elderly are about to be hit with another round of George Osbourne's austerity cuts, it is simply astonishing that the Government has now agreed to a 10% pay rise, with no cuts to their expenses, so now an ordinary M.P will get 74k a year, while people I know are survivng on £40 ta week hardship after sanctions, which includes disabled people, rhe mentally ill and the vulnerable, who have been unfairly sanctioned. Children now need breakfast clubs at school, people rely on food bank vouchers, while PIP is being refused to wheelchair users. It is quite frankly bloody obscene.
It simply represents the modern politicians detachment from reality, in this House of Greed, full of a self-serving political establishment that rewards itself as ordinary people struggle.
In a period of sky high rising energy bills for the rest of us, job insecurities.
At the end of the day these M.Ps are being rewarded for obdedience and conformity, little else, it certainly does not seem to be based on commitment or highly held priniciples. Their rising pay, will make them more resilient to change, complacent and loyal to the status quo. Not in touch with the tough financial conditions that the rest of us have to endure.
Surely Nurses, teachers, etc represent more better value,
Perhaps their pay should be subject to a medical, as metered out to people on benefits, I am sure there would be no increase or reward for many.
And to no ones great surprise, David Cameron, who said he would not accept a rise, takes it after all, after calling it simply unacceptable. To be expected I guess.
