October 26, 2006
A quick insight into the New Labour regime. That very same government that has given us massive taxation whilst splashing out on wars, failed IT systems, little change in public services, the Millennium Dome and wants to spend yet more on curtailing our freedom (as we are no longer capable taking responsibility for our own rational risks). According to my BOTFP calculation, MPs salaries have increased by almost 35% since 1997, whilst the average national salary has only gone up by 26% against an inflation growth in the same period of circa 20%.
We really need a ‘none of the above’ box on the ballot paper.
