MPs are taking extortionate payrises whilst huge cuts are in place across the board in every sector.

The average starting pay for a nurse ins circa £21,000 from which they have to rent/pay mortgage, feed families, transport themselves to work etc.

The MPs are on £70,000+ and then get expenses paid on properties, meal subsidiaries, transport costs reclaimed, housing when at Parliament etc. 

Surely if a nurse can survive on a small wage then MPs do not require an average of a 7% payrise over a UK average of 2%?

A cap needs putting in place, it's like wrubbing salt in a wound when they agree on cuts in the sectors that keep the taxpayers being able to pay tax.
