Bernard Jenkin (I thought he’d died years ago, I really did, I thought he was some sort of B-movie-comedian or something) is the subject of the Daily GramscoMirror’s ire today***, over an “eyewatering £63,250”. Yup, it really is. Eyewatering I mean.
One law for them.
And Tony McNulty (who’s that? How can you give a job as a politician to someone called “Tony”?) can “keep the £60,000”.
Another law for us.
***Through a Glass, Dully.
I was disappointed nobody put this into perspective when it hit the headlines. Considering the fact that an MP earns about £50-£60k per year, and the Prime Minister himself earns only £150-£200k, I can’t see what the problem is. Even with the expenses it equates to a few thousands in most cases. A drop in the ocean compared to the massive bureaucracies which consume who knows exactly how much tax. That’s what puts it into perspective.
