Galloway Number 3 in ‘House of Scroungers’ says Socialist Worker – er, Not.
Socialist Worker says,
House of Scroungers
Tory MP Sir Malcolm Rifkind says it’s “quite unrealistic” to expect MPs to live on their salary of £67,000 a year.
They note that,
“Gordon Brown, the former prime minister, declared additional income of close to £1 million. Geoffrey Cox, the Conservative MP, declared earnings of £820,000—12 times the annual MP wage.”
As Jack Straw with great foresight said in 2010 “Their behaviour, prima facie, does indeed bring the Parliamentary Labour Party, as well as parliament, into disrepute, because it appears that former Cabinet ministers are more interested in making money than they are in properly representing their constituents.”
For an unaccountable reason George Galloway got left off Socialist Worker’s little list, so we have helpfully supplied the full one.
