Bit rich coming from Politicians

Premier League clubs are living in a “moral vacuum" and players should be first to sacrifice salaries during the coronavirus pandemic, say politicians.

Agreed footballers should give up some of their salaries. It would be the only right thing to do in this time of crisis. But I don`t think Politicians are in any position to start lecturing others about morals, after the complete pigs ear they have made of Brexit the past two or three years, then they awarded themselves a bigger than most pay rise. I didn`t see to many of them handing their pay rises back for the god awful mess they have left the country in post Brexit.

They should do what they preach.

Politicians blocked pay rises for public sector workers for ten years whilst pocketing rise after rise themselves, sometimes up to 16% per year

Nurses, teachers, firefighters all took pay cuts for nine years. Still we’re all in this together ha?

Politicians don’t actually award themselves a salary increase, they are set by the Independent Parlimentry Standards Association (IPSA). also the government have froze increases for the last few years.
Many senior politicians from the cabinet and shadow cabinet are also known to donate parts of their salary to charitable causes.
I’m not into politics but not every MP is as bad as some people make out

Those same politicians also ignored the independent board who told them the public sector should have a 7 % pay rise, and overruled then with a 1 % payrise. Technically a pay cut as inflation is nearer 3 %. But you keep sticking up for those nice mps mate. I’m sure they are completely reliable.

Before you get sarcastic, maybe you should actually look at the facts.

I should know, Me and my family have been living with austerity and it’s pay cuts for ten years.

Yes mate, whilst you have had to put up with austerity. MPs are taking above inflation pay rises.

Poor lamb. I trump you with being self employed. You at least got an income. Mine can fall off a cliff at anytime with no redundancy, few rights. Cyril quoted a fact, mp's do not set their wages. And the total cost of remuneration of 540 mp's is a tad different to the millions on the state teat. Like it or not.

People saying MPs don't setvyheir wages don't know what they're on about. The intention was that they wouldn't but I can assure you the MPs are still in control of this.

Would take long to explain but the entities deciding MP wages often end up put at the mercy of said MPs.

You honestly think mp's wouldn't have manipulated these more had they a voice? If we paid our parliament more we might get better than the crap we have. The vast majority on all sides sides have to be reminded to breathe. Thuckaspigshit
