It's true. Believe it or not, British MP's actually think it's right to give themselves a 32% salary increase when they have imposed public sector salary caps for the past 3 years.
BBC News - MP's call for 32% salary increase
They really are absolutely unbelieveable. They live in their little cocooned, pampered, overpaid bubbles and expect the rest of the country to scrape and bow to their every wish.
They are a bunch of corrupt, juvenile idiots.
They are also entitled to a final salary pension scheme which is something that cannot be afforded for public sector workers - according to the MP's!! It really is like some sort of sick joke.
I was just thinking, maybe this should have been put in the Rant section.

Kind of my point there. Do away with perks and simply give a bigger salary. That way, they are responsible for their own budgeting. And lets be honest here, any MP that cannot budget properly shouldn't be anywhere near running our country!
I think part of the problem is that people who go into politics are involved in it from quite a young age.
