Snouts in the trough

The fattest pension scheme in the UK, the most generous expenses allowances (which are largely unchecked) and often a job for life, yet they want more.

Our MP's want a 66% pay rise to keep them in line with senior civil servants!?! Sorry, but they seem to have lost touch with reality.

The problem seems to be that greed is contagious, and overpaid civil servants are being used as the benchmark to lever up MP's salaries.

Can I suggest that the solution is fewer and better paid (as should be the case for Councillors) or possibly the transfer of all power from Westminster to Holyrood.
