Just seen this enter link description here and thought about how we have been told we must all pull together to get us out of this mess.
No big pay rises for nurses, redundancy's in the army, pensioners to get about £3 a week, a one percent salary increase for all public sector workers for 2013 and 2014. you get the idea and they could get in one pay rise what some people have to live on for a year.
I realise that they may have to wait but I don't think they will mind too much if it comes off.
To avoid this constant problem, I think MP's should receive a salary equal to Army ranks, or Civil Servants. Say a back bencher equal to a Major (about £57k or a Lt Col ( abt £78k) , Ministers maybe a Col or Brigadier (£100k). In this way the issue becomes non political.
So, by your reckoning the Secretary of State for defence - a person who makes billion pound decisions on a regular basis,and decisions about how our armed forces should be equipped and deployed should be paid the same as a colonel of a regiment?
f.m "As I said before" yes you do tend to repeat yourself.
But then f.m you do tend to insult people a lot, I've tried to not be nasty or personal but you always want to start a personal argument for some reason.
Is there some thing bothering you and you feel the need to be nasty to people.
That statement of yours "So, now you don't think MPs should be properly equipped to carry out their duties."
It's funny but I believed they received expenses for items to do with their job as well as a salary, and at no time have I implied any thing like that, so that is another made up story to bolster an argument of yours that is steadily going downhill.
Wasn't it you who in a previous post said some thing like " once you get personal then you are losing the argument"
