Well an MP job sounds good. Six grand pay rise overnight.

Not bad.

What a read   Evil or Very Mad  : -

Ah! perhaps it’s really another philanthropic gesture by Danczuk , so he can donate his £1,000. a day remuneration to those owed money by Urban Visions Limited, that traded as Vision Twentyone;  You know …. his former Manchester-based company that was ‘liquidised’ only 2 years ago, owing £222,000 to creditors including £113,140 to HM Revenue and Customs.     Trafford Primary Care Trust was just one of the creditors.

At the end of the day, it is small potatoes by parliamentary measuring. Many MPs are doctors and lawyers with very lucrative practices or routinely maintain a sheaf of business consultancies , shareholdings and directorships.

Set aside this, SD's little earner is like  paper round money.

I had a lot of doubts about Simon when he was first selected as candidate and then got elected but all things considered, he has not done a bad job and is considerable better than the MPs for Rochdale that I can remember; Jack McCann, Cyril Smith, Liz Lynn, Lorna Fitzsimmons and Paul Rowen. He has never been afraid to speak up for Rochdale, even when this has put him at odds with his local party.Credit where it's due.

I do think that MP's pay increases should reflect those being awarded in the public sector in percentage terms. The current rise is a piss-take.

I see our local MP is against the proposed pay rise for the MPs. Though they are saying they will be forced to take it because a quango say they have to take it. They do know how to get round things, "We have no say in it".

Who set up this quango in the first place?

Anyway while a lot of people are suffering during the present financial crisis. Any MP who does take the pay rise and decides to keep it. Do not bother coming to my home looking for votes. You may not like my reply.

It seems you can't win:

The whole point of setting up an independent review body was to make fair evaluation of what the MPs are worth and what their fair renumeration should be.

Okay, the government have set aside the independent review bodies for the public sector and imposed pay freezes and below inflation settlements.  In fairness, thre was not a lot of sympathy for workers in private industry who had seen redundancy, short time working, imposed pay cuts and imosed freezes for the previous six or seven years when public sector had seen inflation plus x rises - and inxcremental additions on top.

So, if we are going to have a review body, lets have one for all public sector workers, equipped with the same song sheet, and lets make sure that the government abides by all the decisions.

Analysis of MPs’ expenses for 2012/13 reveals how Greater Manchester had the country’s top food expenses bill-claiming MP’ : - Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk
 

He was also the second highest claimant in the country for accommodation – almost £29,000.  
       


Mr Danczuk is reported to have commented, “Unlike the majority of MPs, I have a very young family and this is why my London accommodation costs are higher.”

Does he?

He comes out with some views opposite to what has been said.  But no alternatives.  He is holding a cake morning.  Then what?

When did you last see him in the area you live in?  

Yes I suppose there are worse.  Oh, wait there is - The majority of those in power in Rochdale.

What always get's my goat in regard to this is that I use my wage to pay for my family. Why do MPs get to keep their wage and seemingly claim everything else they spend back as allowances?

Atlas lad - I did not document a "whinge."  

However, your instruction / authority rattled me, to the extent that I did write quite a lengthy reply commentary           

It TIMED OUT, and I darned well lost it all Laughing

Yes, C'mon indeed !    Perspective and context needed.  We already know that very many of our MPs have time for 'other' positions and interests.      A parliamentary 'week' isn't routinely 5 sitting days, it's 4, and each member has their own back-up teams for constituency and parliamentary 'work.'    The factual observations I reproduced were about an MP for a Rochdale constituency in Britain.  


The following was documented in April 2013: -   MPs will not be back in Westminster for very long after they come back on May 8.         They go on holiday again on May 22 for their Whitsun break of more than a week.         They then return on June 3, but leave again for their lengthy six-week summer break on July 19. They come back for two weeks in September, and then have another three week autumn break during party conference season.          Before you know it, their next week’s break in November leads quickly to their Christmas/New Year break ...  



Assuming full attendance Rolling Eyes   when Parliament is sitting, there is no 'tough' framework to commute for.    A suggestion of this MP regularly taking young children along, causing notably raised London accommodation expenses, appears .... err, mildly expressed, to be a surprising explanation.  Housing costs should surely be a 'normal' salary outlay for one's family members.

Our local Ward councillor, married to Simon Danczuk, turned up at one of our neighbourhood meetings earlier on in the year with both her children.  After 10/15 minutes she gave her apologies on account of her two bored boys and left.

Best 'get out' clause going.....Rolling Eyes

Well I suspect that a lot of the current Cllrs got in on more of a protest vote, after the Lib Dems imploded and a number of them betrayed all the grass roots support and spent more time on forming another party instead of putting the very people and Town that they were voted in on to represent in the first place. Come the next Local and General Election, I strongly suspect the remaining Lib Dems will be voted out again on the way they sold out to get a bit of power and they backtracked on a pledge to vote against Student Fees, which lead to Nick Cleggs video on Youtube apologising for their election pledge and voting the fees in..


So now we are seeing how Cllrs behave - such as Cllr Burke turning up to a meeting with kids in tow. I've not even seen Cllr Brett in Newhey, then maybe they will get voted out next time.  But for now we have three more years of their antics.   All the while taking a nice little wage packet from us for their trouble.   Yet all the while Rochdale sinks.
