Stop the £3000 pay rise for MP's, give it to key workers instead.

Petition Details

The government need to stop this pay rise for MP's. NHS and key workers are much more deserving of a pay rise. Instead of patting themselves on the back, they MUST do something about the thousands of jobs lost due to Coronavirus. Absurd to think about a pay rise for MP's.

Additional Information

We are currently in the middle of a pandemic, the economy is in tatters, how is a pay rise for MP's justifiable yet not for NHS and key workers? Absolutely disgusting to even consider a pay rise for MP's. Stop this madness. If any MP's have a shred of decency, they will reject this pay rise.
