The hypocrisy of British politics is set to rear its ugly two faces again as MP's gear up for 'substantial' pay increases.
with the recession still biting deep, local authorities having their spending and services driven into the ground, and unemployment at record levels, it seems that the rich still want to get richer, while the poor get.., well, you know the rest.
with most families struggling to remain afloat on a rising tide of inflation, energy costs, and food bills, and with the average pay increase being either nothing at all, or well below the rate of inflation, it seems that your friendly neighbourhood politician wants to up theirs by at least 30%.
it would seem that while we all are 'in this together'
some of us are 'in this' more than others.
'i'm alright jack'....?
not 'arf, what!
