I nearly choked on my hot chocolate.
He couldn't have been further from the truth or even more completely out of touch with what most people believe, if he boarded the next space shuttle to Mars.
Let's think for a minute... oh yes I nearly forgot, apart from the ridiculous salary and generous pension they get, there's all those money making scams, sorry, 'expenses' they grab.
Whether it's pretending you live in London to increase your claim or claiming, quite literally pennies for paper clips (legitimately or not), when you're on a minimum wage of £75,000 odd a year and employ the wife on £20,000+ a year as a 'researcher', it doesn't exactly strike me that lining your own pockets isn't the objective.
I would call it an unhealthy interest in money.
And it's always nice to see these same people larging it up on £75,000 a year think a suitable legal minimum wage for everyone else is about £15,000 a year, for a 40 hour week.
Anyway, I wondered if Mr. Dunt could name a politician that had actually left Parliament poorer than when they had boarded the gravy train.
