Interesting study reported in the Mail about how difficult it is for MPs to find work once they have been kicked out of their jobs. Not so much finding work, but finding a job that pays the same amount (Â£60k plus perks). LINK HERE According to the article: Some former MPs were disenchanted after leaving the Commons, the university study found. One called working outside politics "demeaning". Another said: "It's a hard, cold, unforgiving world outside Westminster." And one commented: "No expenses for motor driving, no secretary, no parking space." Welcome to Reality FM! :sad2: One former MP "was ordered to report for a suitability-to-work interview by the benefits office she had opened only the year before." :laughing9: Now, everytime MPs vote themselves a pay rise, they appear to justify it by telling us how skilled and valued they are, and to compensate them for the kind of wages they'd be able to earn outside politics. Perhaps they need to start reducing their wages?? Yeah, OK, like that will ever happen. :-\\\\ What is frightening though, is how many join QUANGOs or other public bodies when they leave!
