MEP’S PLANNED VIOLENT RIOT IN RESPONSE TO MEAGRE £3,000 PAY RISE!! November 26, 2010Posted by feedthemoon in Uncategorized.
As someone who is paid to support vulnerable adults with learning disabilities; and recently had to endure a morale-sapping staff meeting wherein we were told that virtually all funding for college-courses and activities for these people has been slashed – you can imagine my tears of relief on hearing that another vulnerable section of European society has actually seen a pay increase: On November 24th 46,000 Euro MP’s were awarded – sorry, awarded themselves – a pretty tasty £3,000 a year pay increase.
Many feared there would be violent confrontations when the EMP’s heard of the paltry size of the proposed pay-increase; yet simmering tensions were cooled somewhat when a last minute deal pronounced the increase would be BACK-DATED to July 2009. This seemed enough to prevent a violent outburst spilling onto the streets of Brussels.
I for one am delighted to see democracy in action. In allowing themselves such paltry pay-rises we should commend them.
Then condemn them.
And then castrate them.
Then hang ’em; as a warning to the rest.
