Politians getting paid a bonus to turn up to work ?
Following the thread about the Ghurkas (shame on you Labour) and the inability of the current labour government to actually be representative of anything remotely decent, I felt it also worth pointing out the recent farce regarding Gordon Brown's decision to abandon the second home allowance for politicians (about time too). However, his suggested alternative is to pay them a bonus for attending parliament. In other words they get paid a huge wage and then expect a bonus to attend work ! On top of not having to provide receipts for any expense claims under £25. And on top of all the other perks, pension schemes, and god knows what else. I'd like to see them all strung up and shot. They are bleeding this country dry and are in no way representative of the people. And this from a Prime Minister who was not even elected. It makes me sick.:17:
