Cut MP’s wages to the UK average, put the rest of the money to where it’s needed

Petition Details

We need MPs to take a pay cut instead of these big pay rises that you keep giving yourselves and put the money to where it’s really needed to the real people that run the country i.e. nurses doctors hospitals police etc

Additional Information

It would make you MP’s realise that the rate of inflation isn’t reflected in salaries or wages and the cost of living is becoming extortionate. With the money saved by all MPs taking a pay cut to UK average earnings would make them think for the people of this great land and not themselves.
