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…

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
