UNBELIEVABLE! The increase for all MPs pay/salary at such a high percentage. What should be considered is the way they are paid. Why should all individual workers, some in same workplaces, be paid at different rates yet all MPs be paid equally throughout the nation. They should all be paid their expenses from a central fund whilst on duty at parliament. But, their pay and expenses whilst in their own constituencies should be raised from their individual constituency and the constituents would be charged through their local rates. It is then up to the constituents to decide what rate the individual MP should receive, even if there is a need for a constituency ballot on it.
