Tamela Allen started this petition to Public and

✔️ UK average salary £36,000

✔️ Public service expenditure down

✔️ Local services underfunded & being cut

✔️ Council tax rising.... again!

✔️ Local food bank numbers rising 

✔️ UK citizens living in poverty rising

✔️ UK household debt ever increasing 

✔️ Disability benefit cuts 

And the Westminster MP's get an above inflation pay rise to £82k a year! 

If you, like me, aren't happy with this then please sign my petition. It is time to stop the political greed and focus on the safety and security of our citizens, there is no need for an MP to receive this wage. This is our tax money so we should have a say.

Whilst the UK as a whole is becoming crippled by the reduction in public service expenditure, our MP's are happily taking an above inflation pay rise. It is time for a hold on their salaries, a reduction to a more suited rate of pay to reflect the state of the UK - more money should be put towards public services, not the MP's pay and expenses packet. We need to take action and focus on the safety and security of fellow UK citizens. 

Sign and share, enough signatures and it must be debated. 

Who knows, maybe if their salary reflected the UK average, they would make better informed decisions on where to spend our tax money.
