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.

      I don't believe MP's deserve a pay rise at a time when the public sector is being cut.

      I'm disgusted that MPs change pay and pension for everyone else then give themselves a huge pay rise. All MPs are wealthy people already who don't need a huge pay rise

      If you cannot afford the infastructure, police, nurses, firefighters then you cannot afford to take a pay rise, where is the austerity for MP's? Disgrafeul behaviour, no wonder politicians are amongst the most hated people in the country.
