David Cameron: Stop the 11% pay rise for MPs' salaries

Within weeks David Cameron will be making a decision on the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority recommendation for a 11% pay rise on MPs' salaries.

Initially the pay rise was meant to come with the scrapping of expenses (they use our taxes to pay for their daily meals, travel, expenses for second homes and duck ponds etc) but now they are demanding the pay rise whilst keeping their expenses intact. All the while they are cutting benefits for vulnerable families, freezing salaries for our most loved nurses and sacking the police we need to keep our communities safe.

The British people can't take much more of this, the blatant stealing from the poor to give to the rich is getting out of hand and it's clearly apparent that the current government are also silencing mainstream media to keep important changes from us.

We, the British public are part of a democratic society and need to express our disgust at the proposals to yet again, give bonuses and pay rises to those who not only don't need them, but don't deserve them! They should not receive a pay rise of any kind during this desperate economic time. MPs should refuse a pay rise or bonus to show that we're truly 'in this together.' 

Please sign this petition and share with your family and friends, don't be complacent and believe this will all go away, or that it's too late; it's never too late to use your voice.

Much love and support to everyone who is struggling due to the actions of this Government.

      How can you justify an 11% pay rise for MP salaries whilst nurses recieve a real time salary cut for the 4th year running? One rule for the mighty and one for those at the bottom of the food chain?

      It would be disgraceful for MPs to get 11% while other, key, public sector workers get 1%.

      Why should you all have 11% when you wouldn't give me and other NHS employees 1% You are all out for yourselves and don't care about other people who are struggling to live. You should try living on our salaries and see how you like it.

      They should set an example to those who they want to vote them into the next parliament. There are other categories of workers, nurses for example, who deserve more than 11%. What have the MPs done in the last 4 years to deserve such a pay rise. We are still tied in to the EU and European Court of Human Rights.
