The Pay Increase Dilemma
To be fair, a lot of the money in an MP's salary does not go straight into their pocket. Some MP's use their finances to help fund their office, but at a time when public sector workers are grumbling about the percentage of their pay increase, it would not be the done thing for our elected representatives to award themselves a pay rise. Unfortunatley it will mean sitting tight for a while, but such a move would be beneficial all round in the long term.
