Will he tell his fellow MP's about this and will they listen?

You might be right.

“We are getting it in the neck from the public anyway. We might as well take the money and run,”

Sums it up, really.

If I was on his salary I would be saying the same. It is slightly different for families with children, OAPs and low income groups. The man is clearly an out of touch baboon and on the same level as the half-wit MP who told everyone to cheer up last week. I am beginning to despair.

Not to worry, they will stick to 1.5% plus the suggested £40k top up (because they will be giving up their second home allowances)

might actually be a better idea in terms of relieving inflation. Especially since the rises are unpredicted and so weren't a planned aspect of tax revenue.

This constant banging on about limiting pay rises is starting to get more than a little tiresome.

I foresee a summer of discontent

`I foresee a summer of discontent`

Perhaps it will be placed near the winter of discontent in the history books. However it will do little to make life any easier for anyone - especially groups without any clout. Seems to me that a Union of Pensioners or similar would be unlikely to get much support from other union groups.
