MP's Pay back money as you can see from that quick GOOGLE search there is stacks of stories about this.
I also know that I'm not the first cop to blog about it..
But I just feel that I have to have my own 2 pence worth of a say because otherwise it'll build up in me like a rage and I'll go to Westminster and have it out with the first idiot MP that I see on the street!
So, as an MP you earn how much money?
I thought I'd do some research... and Alan KEEN has posted up details from 2004. I don't actually know who he is, but his information came up first in Google. (AND I AM NOT saying that Alan KEEN has done anything wrong, but it gives a good guide as to how much money MP's are making off of OUR backs when we can't even afford to fuel up the car)
Anyway, it would appear that they are on SUBSTANTIALLY MORE than the average citizen of the United Kingdom. In fact, around double what I earn and they don't get spat at, have punches thrown at them, or have to struggle to pay rent or a mortgage!
So a £60,000/annum salary PLUS expenses???
Reading through Alan KEENS information from his website it would appear that the average MP if they are smart can rake in well over a hundred grand without even trying. Specially if they cut back on their own 'staff' etc.
SO WHY are they allowed to then claim MORE expenses for 2nd houses and so on when MOST PEOPLE cannot even afford a 1st house? Clearly they've got the money to not have to worry about things like trouser presses and should be paying for it out of their own bloody pocket, not ours.
If I fiddled my expenses forms at work I wouldn't just be dismissed from the office of constable I would ALSO be brought up on misconduct charges, probably fraud or at the very least theft charges and I would have to explain myself in court where, if I lost, the court would throw the book at me to set an example.
So why hasn't a SINGLE MP been arrested and charged as yet for any of their dishonesty offences which they have ADMITTED PUBLICALLY ON TV!!!!?????!?!?!?!
ARREST and CHARGE the bloody lot of them. THEN cancel ALL second house allowances. Can the entire bloody lot of them and call a full general election so that we might actually get a government that we voted for, not someone who was grandfathered in because he was best buddies with the last tosser in government.. and let's teach these over-paid, under-worked idiots what it's like to actually be on the breadline, or on the dole queue, or perhaps just living real life, commuting because you can't afford to live anywhere near work due to overinflated housing prices, or scrimping to buy the kids a treat on the school holidays because you earn crap wages and your wife has to stay at home to look after the kids because babysitting is so expensive.
I want to know who's responsible, I want some action, and I want it now. ALL THE CRIMINAL SCUM should be charged and put before a JURY of their PEERS (YES, US, the PUBLIC!)
