Immoral and hypocritical? (Brian Nugent)

If our MP wants to revise public pension schemes, he should start with the best public pension scheme of the lot – that of MPs.

Coalition MPs are fond of saying we are all in this together. Aye right. The bankers who have ruined the country are still on huge wages and even bigger bonuses. The MPs stood by and allowed the bankers to ruin the economy. They voted improvements in their pension scheme on their £65,738 salaries. Now MPs are after other public sector workers who earn so much less to plug holes in the deficit.

How immoral or hypocritical or both are our MPs?
