Someone has to be taking the piss!
And the person is: Bill Cockburn – he should change his surname to Cockhead!
Jesus – he feels that MPs are UNDERPAID by 10-15% so he advocates that they get a rise of up to £10,000 a year! That will take the base salary to over 73k a year!
With MPs reeling from public anger at the extent of their claims, Bill Cockburn, the chairman of the body responsible for setting their pay, chose yesterday to suggest that MPs deserve a pay rise of up to £10,000 a year, arguing that they were underpaid by 10-15%.
The man must be insane! With the anger that is felt by the public now – can you imagine if MPs voted for that kind of pay rise?
Oliver will be rising from his grave soon.
