    Quite right. He has an agenda, although he alone knows what that actually is. More than likely he wants to be remembered as a great statesman, and not for the fact that his wife shagged his cousin. Good luck with that, Burky boy...

    His seat might be safe (the other main parties don't field candidates against the Speaker) but as the last election proved, very few seats are safe these days. He may think MPs don't have to vote with their constituents' wishes, but the MPs really ought to consider the consequences.

    What consequences, losing job that pays £60k? Most of them will lose it anyway after they get Brexit through.

    It's quite a bit more than that, but with generous expenses and more importantly, huge quantities of ego-feed. And why would they lose their jobs after Brexit? Are we abolishing Parliament?

    They would be voted out for new comers.

    However if the new comers are female they tend to last one parliament anyway so it isn't a big issue.

    £74,962. From wiki:

    The basic annual salary for an MP was increased from £67,060 to £74,000 on 31 July 2015, backdated to 8 May 2015
    The salary has thankfully broken free of austerity public sector pay restraint. Although in hard currency terms, they've taken a hit like everyone else.

    Not sure where you get that idea from. The £ is still a hard currency. In fact it's even harder these days. To earn, that is...

    Sorry, I forgot - outside the UK we snigger slightly when we refer to sterling. But yes, I should be respectful that life is getting tough in the old country (except for MPs of course).

    I keep pushing forwards but they keep pushing me backwards. So I have new rules. 1. Don't feed the trolls you know they have no souls. 2. Don't respond to them they'll only post back back again. 3. Don't be their friend they'll only knife you in the back. I have new rules I count them.
