Commons pay rise - this has got to stop.

From the BBC:
The House of Commons has awarded significant pay rises to its senior officials, including some of those who oversaw the MPs' expenses scandal.

Annual accounts just released show that the Clerk to the House, Malcolm Jack, received a rise of about 11%, meaning he now earns more than Gordon Brown.

Andrew Walker, who ran the Fees Office which administered expenses, received a rise of about 8%.

His salary rose from a band of £115,000 - £120,000 to £125,000 - £130,000.
Where did I put my flaming torch and effing pitchfork?

While those that pay the taxes to indulge these people receive zero, if they have a job.
