Julia Hartley-Brewer: MPs Got Pay Rise Despite Pay Cap

Julia Hartley-Brewer challenged MPs over the £1,000 pay rise they received despite the public sector pay cap. During a discussion about the cap on BBC Question Time, Julia said:

“Interestingly, earlier this year, three of the people on this panel, all MPs, took a £1,000 pay rise to £76,000 a year… I happen to know a brain surgeon who earns half that. Being an MP, with all due respect, isn’t brain surgery, and yet you guys think you are worth so much more than people doing front line jobs.”

She ain’t wrong…

Lewis Goodall opines

“Remainer readers may dislike Mr Farage – they may dislike his style, his rhetoric, his approach – but he cannot be faulted for his appreciation of strategy. If his opponents don’t up their game – and fast – he will beat them, just as he did before.”
