Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. ...and that's between 188,000 staff, according to a report by the PAC, reported by BBC Online.

    By contrast, MPs and their staff totalling less than 3,500 cost the taxpayer a more modest £375 million a year... [Editor: shume mistake surely] according to their most recent Annual Report (see p4). That breaks down into £228 million to run the House and a modest £147 million a year on MPs salaries and allowances... and that's before we include MPs very generous pensions package.

    Pots and kettles come to mind..... :roll:
  2. My bold... I was going to say at the very least!
    MPs are good at finding costs outside of that which affects them directly and cutting cutting cutting all over the shop. Seen the thread on ARRSE about them advocating a stupendous payrise of something like 25%?!
    Outrage and a half!
  3. £147m on MP's salaries and allowances, that equates to an average of slightly over £227,000 per MP per year.

    Who says we do not get value for money out of our MP's
  4. We have to pay top dollar to get the best people for the job.

    :toilet: :pukel:
