MP's and Pay

WB believes that everyone elected to full time public office should receive a salary equal to the average wage, plus of course reasonable expenses incurred in "the line of duty".

For to long we have had elected people who by virtue of their election received a pay rise! We should only elect people who go into public office for the greater good of the community they serve rather than for the money.

If this policy discounts the trade unionists, academics and others of their ilk from standing for public office so be it.

It would be interesting to know how many people who get elected to public office get a pay rise and how many go backwards - and if that says anything about party affiliations.
