Suh- WEET!!

From the Open Europe Press Summary:

The salary of British MEPs rises next month from £63,000 to £80,500, and that in total MEPs can receive expenses and allowances of £363,000 a year including a £261 daily subsistence allowance for simply turning up at work and £45,648 in general office expenses, even if they don't have an office in their home constituency.

Where. Do. I. Sign. UP?!!

This working stuff is obviously for chumps.

Gosh, yes. When do I start ? Any wonder Neil and Glenys Kinnock look like Millionaires these days. They are !

What does the 30% payrise indicate then, of the future role of European Politics ? What is it they are going to be asked to do that will earn them such a reward ?
