Is it right the Speaker of the house gets a million pound pension paid for by us. Why don't they pay for their own pensions. Besides his wife getting £4000 for taxi fares and keeping the two sides at peace in the Commons, what does he do and how do you get the job?

the govt needs to review and tidy up all the money wasted by mp's in allowances and make them all public.

joe public is feeling the pinch and they are are asking 60% pay rise to cover the abuse they made of the 2nd house allowance.
