I AM fed up with highly paid politicians, from councillors to MPs, who also have good private pensions and state pensions and must take home at least £1,000 a week, telling us they know our pain and struggle and that we are all in it together, when in fact they are so out of touch with the people they are meant to represent.

These politicians’ only worry is where to go for their holidays this year and not about feeding their family or heating their homes.
