The Tory MP Desmond Swayne MP said:…."The current system is a constant source of grievance for the public, who now hold us in contempt. They hate us and think we all have our snouts in the trough."
They do? How could that happen?
The proposed pay rise would boost an MP\’s basic wage to more than £100,000 from £63,291, at a time when private sector workers are enduring pay freezes.
Beats me to be honest. How could anyone get that sort of impression?
