Last month we uncovered the shocking truth of DWP’s misuse of your money – they spent £1,436,272.08 advertising themselves on Facebook.
That was just the tip of the iceberg. When it came to advertising themselves outside of Facebook in 2017 they were quite willing to squander much more of your money as you can see below…
Sub total £10,768,963.77
Now let’s remind ourselves what they spent on Facebook..
DWP spent £12,205,235.85 taxpayers’ money advertising themselves during 2017. Forget about the NHS. This is how the Tories prefer to spend your money.
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.
