Q. What do you think of MPs telling us they need second jobs to get by on £82k a year?
It makes me so cross. That they they can’t manage on such a huge income when it’s many times that of a family on benefits is disgusting. Especially after they’ve just cut benefits. It’s hypocritical and smacks of privilege. Not to mention the question of how they find the time for a second job is £80k a year not a full time wage? I believe that all politicians should get a basic wage (none of these loopholes and expenses) and second jobs should be banned. A career in politics should be a calling not a lucrative moneymaker/stepping stone. Maybe then we’d get people who actually care about making the country fairer.
