Stand and deliver!

How often have you heard it said that MP’s don’t enter politics for the money?
Hands up if you believe it.
Now keep your hands up. This is a hold up. Pass me your wallet!
That little scenario above was a bit of role playing in which I was your average MP. And believe me, they are very average. And believe me again, he/she already has at least one hand on your wallet.
Take a look at your own MP and ask yourself: if they were lucky enough to find a job outwith the cloistered honeypot that is Westminster, what kind of salary do you honestly think they could command?
The truth is, Parliament is full of nincompoops who stand on a promise that they never deliver and for which they are paid a salary that is tantamount to daylight robbery.
