Andrew Bridgen: MPs Are Underpaid

BridgenAccording to the Office of National Statistics MPs on £65,738 are paid more than 95% of the people they represent. Yet according to a survey carried out by YouGov for IPSA, they want more, an average of a 32% hike. These are MPs from parties with a policy of keeping other public sector worker’s pay frozen. Andrew Bridgen had the balls to tell the BBC the truth:

Pollsters YouGov were asked to survey MPs by IPSA to find out if they thought £65,738 was enough for their salary.

MPs were asked to anonymously suggest an appropriate salary:

On average Tories wanted £96,740, Lib Dems £78,361 and Labour MPs a mere £77,322. Labour’s policy is to freeze public sector pay for nurses, teachers, policemen and soldiers. The UK average income is £26,500. We’re all in this together, right?
