“Disparaging, disingenuous, disconnected.” My thoughts on the £10k pay rise for MPs.

Totally agree with “On a salary that is currently three times the average earnings, how can MPs honestly engage with the issues that their constituents – we – are struggling with? Rising fuel prices, rising food prices, social housing shortages, cuts to welfare, not to mention the half a million people reliant on food banks to feed themselves and their children. As families up and down Britain struggle with unemployment, choosing between heating and eating, and cuts to benefits and tax credits, how can someone who earns £66,000 a year, let alone £74,000 or £100,000, begin to comprehend what life is really like for the other 95% of people in Britain?”
The MPs do not live on the same planet as us.
