10% would be a start Observer. :wink:

 

PS Warrington could manage with a single MP

 

Paul why should the good people of Warrington have 50% less representation in the House of Commons than the rest of the country?

 

With one new MP they would be getting 100% better representation than they are getting at the moment Geoff. :wink:

 

PS And fear not Geoff if there is a cull of MPs then all areas would be subject to the reduction.

As I've always said, it is not only some MPs with their snouts in the trough, indeed I've always believed that there are many others wallowing in the trough, and from The Times, here is one of them:

 

"One of Britain?s most powerful union leaders has a secret house-for-life guarantee and enjoys pay and benefits worth nearly ?200,000.

 

Derek Simpson, joint general secretary of Unite, has a deal to remain in his ?800,000 grace-and-favour house in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, until he dies, according to confidential documents obtained by The Times. His pay package also went up by 17 per cent. Under the terms of the agreement Mr Simpson?s partner can stay in the home at a heavily subsidised rate even after the death of the 64-year-old union leader. "

 

It is often said that MPs salaries are not reflective of their constituents, seems neither are Union leaders'.

But Paul,

 

his salary is paid for by some misguided union members paying subs; they can leave if they want to.... An MPs salary and perks is taken from our taxes and we have no choice in the matter.

 

MP's do not deserve the salary package they get.... period And in a week when it was also reported that they are to get an additional 25% increase in their pension contributions too!

 

It beggars belief
