MPs get fourth payrise in two years

MPs will soon enjoy a 1.8 percent pay rise, bringing their incomes to over £77,000.  It’s their fourth pay rise in two years. Meanwhile, pay for public-sector workers – nurses, teachers and firemen – remains capped at 1 percent. 

Politicians will see their pay increase by almost £1,400 in April 2018 to £77,379.  MPs’ pay will have effectively risen by around £11,000 since 2014, while public servants face a real-terms pay cut amid stagnating wages and rising living costs.

Fury as Philip Hammond suggests disabled workers are suppressing economic productivity

The Tories are well known for showing their contempt for sick and disabled people.  The world knows they have been under investigation by the United Nations for violating laws to protect these people.   Tory Philip Hammond doesn’t like them in work either, apparently claiming they are ‘suppressing economic productivity’.  But what can you expect from someone who recently claimed ‘there are no unemployed people’?

Why Davis should follow through with his threat to resign

‘Minister of Brexit’ David Davis threatened to resign if the ‘Minister of Porn’ Damian Green was sacked for looking at thousands of porn images on his computer when he was meant to be working

Police officer threatens to sue ‘Minister of Porn’

Bob Quick, former assistant police commissioner, said he will take action against Damian Green unless he “publicly retracts” the suggestion that Quick was lying about what was found on Green’s computer.

Nadine Dorries tried to defend Green by saying she let her staff use her computer under her identity.    Green has never accused any of his staff of downloading the porn – but it’s understood he had one gay male and two females as staff members during the period in question.  Thus pinning the blame on them would be tricky.
