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.

      MP's have no grip on reality or honesty.

      Their "expense claims" are an outrage. This bunch of political thieves will go down in history as a blight on polotics.

      To give them an 11% "pay" rise is unacceptable.

      Pay cuts should be considered.

      Ludicrous that MPs think they should get an 11% pay rise when the rest of us are getting nothing or very minimal. The MPs should go in line with public workers funnily enough things will change
