So why do MPs need more cash? Your shout.

IT appears MPs' salaries will soar in the coming months. In the first place, why do they need the money when every living expense imaginable seems to be either refundable from or provided by the State? A small amount of pocket money to buy a Remembrance Day poppy or small change for some charity box for appearance sake would suffice surely? The mystery, therefore, is why on earth do they need money apart from to hoard it? Retirement, getting the boot, growing old on an ordinary British pension (the lowest throughout the EU) should hold no fear for any British MP this side of the grave. They have generous pay-offs plus a substantial pension to look forward to, unlike the rest of us.
