Pay anomaly

UNBELIEVABLE! The increase for all MPs pay/salary at such a high percentage. What should be considered is the way they are paid. Why should all individual workers, some in same workplaces, be paid at different rates yet all MPs be paid equally throughout the nation. They should all be paid their expenses from a central fund whilst on duty at parliament. But, their pay and expenses whilst in their own constituencies should be raised from their individual constituency and the constituents would be charged through their local rates. It is then up to the constituents to decide what rate the individual MP should receive, even if there is a need for a constituency ballot on it.

It was the Chartists who originally campaigned for MPs to be paid, rather than voluntary workers with the intention of providing the poorer members of society with the possibility of standing for election.

I wonder what they would think if they could see the houses of parliament now - it would surely be grounds for another movement

I do not mind them having an 11% pay rise as long as it is a party of a wider reform of Westminster such as cutting the number of M

So you want the MP to be paid a local rate eh. This will lead to no one of any ability wanting to represent poor areas, but I expect that is what rich Tories like you want.

Another closed mind and labour loving tory hater its a sound idea and would make the MP accountable to those who pay for him/her.

you can make an mp more accountable without slashing their pay.

they definitely do not need an 11% payrise, but ontheinside is right.

you get what you pay for - if we had a very low wage for welsh mps, the only people who would run would be those that could afford to work for nothing.

Tory MP's want to introduce regional pay for public sector workers and benefits. It don't include regional pay for MP's. Then you got Labour's caerphilly & cardiff councils creating a regional pay structure with their living wage. 3 MP's in Wales said they will give the extra money to local charities. I challenge the remaining 37 Welsh MP's to do the same and for them all to issue a fiancial statement where every penny its gone to (local good causes). Or every Welsh MP could start a direct debit for the amount of the monthly rise into a Welsh national charity, over looked by an independant non-political board. They hand the money out to Welsh charities.
