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