Coz they are worth it

Troughers ahoy 


MPs are to receive a 2.7% pay rise from April, taking their salary to £79,468.

MPs who chair select committees will also see a rise of 2.7% on the additional £15,509 they receive for that role - taking it to £15,928.

The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority said it had committed to changing MPs' pay in line with public-sector earnings.

Its figures show the basic salary paid to MPs will have risen by £13,730 since April 2010.

The above-inflation rise was criticised by the general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services union, Mark Serwotka, as "an outrage... while civil servants, who do some of the most vital jobs in society, are still subject to a cruel 1% de-facto pay cap."

Maybe they could start a meme like "MP Equality pay gap". Use the same forces against themselves.

"The rise follows a 1.8% rise last year, 1.4% in 2017, 1.3% in 2016 and a large hike, from £67,000 to £74,000, in 2015."

In any event it's meaningless when now and then they get massive out of proportion wage hikes like in 2015.
