MPs are said to be embarrassed at their pay award – if you can believe that – they have no right to be embarrassed but every right to be ashamed taking this pay hike to themselves while their constituents suffer the consequence of their actions having government austerity measures imposed on them.
There’s something very fundamentally wrong in a society were the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. We’ve all seen it, the insatiable greed of the few at the expense of the many but I’d like here to talk of our MPs whose main roll is to represent their constituents. That’s you and I, the average Joe Bloggs, who are the true representatives of our country.
I find it insulting to our workers who keep the country on its feet to be told by our government that they should expect a 1% increase in their salaries, while at the same time face an average increase of 8% in their utility bills, and our MPs are awarded 11% in their salaries while having their utilities paid for by the state.
The disposable income of the many is reduced while the disposable income of the few is increased which is of no comfort to those 2 million people living in the UK who already fall below the breadline.
One of three rolls of an MP is to listen and address the concerns of its constituents. In reality it’s we who are doing all the listening while little of our concerns are addressed.
