MEMBERS of Parliament are sure their 11 percent pay rise will eventually be seen as a political masterstroke.
MPs said the extra £7,000 a year would make them seem more dynamic and impressive and that their constituents would soon find them utterly irresistible.
Tory backbencher, Sir Peter Bottomley, said: Ideally, the pay rise should have formed the centrepiece of a pre-election Budget.
Nevertheless, I will be political chocolate.
Meanwhile, experts stressed MPs are paid less than GPs ‘mainly because of the medical degree’.
Political historian, Julian Cook, said: Being an MP requires no qualifications. It is not a profession. They are not professionals. At all.
He added: During the 1980s Newcastle was represented by a severed foot.
A recent study also found that those who knew MPs before they were elected are astonished to discover they now have a job which pays £66,000 a year.
Jane Thompson, who went to university with a Labour MP from the Midlands, said: If I was him I would see the sixty-six grand for the miracle that it is.
I thought he would end up at the bottom of a pyramid scheme.
He is a fucknut.
