MPs were awarded a controversial 10 per cent pay increase, effective from July, which pushed their salary up from 67,000 to 74,000. At the same time, public sector salaries were capped at a one per cent increase, and the government is pushing through major cuts to families’ tax credits.

    I'm guessing this isn't bang up to date news, given that at least one on that list retired at the last election

    Yeh, bit out of date but just thought I would bring it into the domain in case anybody had any doubts about just how self serving 'most' MP's across all parties are.

    And a quick count up shows more nasty tories giving to charity that the Labour luvvies.

    Bit surprised not see the Islington elite on there tbh .....
    There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.

    I've taken the trouble to trace back the article where it also mentions that there are 18 unnamed MPs donating their pay rise to charity. However, the general point about hypocrisy is well made and not simply applicable to one party
