    The Rich get Richer

    Whilst those on benefits get poorer, especially the sick and disabled.
    How have they got the cheek to even suggest it when the budgets are supposedly to be cut.

    The rich get richer whilst the poor get poorer has been a phrase since time began. As such it's so much an "accepted" part of society that we have given up belief of it ever changing and worse many believe that it is the natural order of things.

    Its hardly surprising beau.These people dont live in our world


    "The Commons voted against a 1% pay rise in 2011 and last year agreed to extend the pay freeze into 2013."

    Why not a pay cut of 1%?after all were all in this together and those with the broadest back should bear the bigger burden

    Yes and the House, not just the government benches, voted against a 1% pay rise. This proposal for an increase in the pay of our representatives (sounds even worse calling them our reps instead of our MP's) has support from ALL sides of the political divide at Westminster not just the coalition!
