My apologies for coming over all Chaucerian this morning but our elected Masters are rather pissing in the societal cornflakes again:
Seven in 10 MPs said they were underpaid on £65,738 a year, according to a survey by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa). On average, MPs said they deserved salaries of £86,250 — a 32 per cent rise.
Ipsa, which said it was “time to move on” from the expenses scandal, said one in five MPs thought they deserved at least £95,000 a year. More than a third thought they should keep generous final salary pensions.
Pay is an incentive to persuade people to do things. We do not, for example, pay model railway builders to build model railways. For we don’t need to do so, model railways get built without our paying people to build them. Thus no incentive in the form of pay need be offered to provide society with model railways.
At every General Election there is a superfluity of rancid cunts who would steal our money and our freedoms standing for election. Thus there is no need to provide further incentives in the form of higher pay to those who manage to get themselves elected.
At which point I am able to offer my hairy, freckled and very British arse for you to kiss the ringpiece of, you Honorable and Right Honourable Members of Parliament you.
Mr. Oaten you are excused as you might enjoy it and Ms. _, you are too for I might.
