We have looked upto these people for many a year & they are VERY quick to claim our tax of us or chase any overpayment/s back setting a example of A fine financial discipline so for the very people that govern these rules to be caught out themselves for i suppose gross misconduct financialy is a serious dissapointment from them!
She'll still get a bucket full of cash in twelve months time when she actually leaves her position as an MP. That's why most are saying they will not stand at the next election because they get paid a fortune to hang on. If they make their mind up to go, then why hang on? Surely they can no longer be that interested in the job knowing that they are going with the pension increase and re-location expenses or whatever it is called.
How many people do you know who are made redundant who get a load of cash because they have to re-settle somewhere else?, Pigs, troughs and pocket lining springs to mind.
Yes, I accept that that is the case, but not in the amount that these people have awarded themselves. Indeed, it is only after a few years "service" that they are getting such sums. In any event, these people are not really being made redundant, they are standing down of their own volition, albeit with a little shove from their constituency members or party leaders! Let's face it if they were sacked, would they still get the money?
