Actions speak louder than words Gordon!
GB has called for an investigation into how MPs’ retirements are funded because he fears they are becoming too expensive for the taxpayer. The current total liability of public-sector pensions to the taxpayer is officially estimated at £650 billion, The move by GB could eventually allow politicians to propose scrapping all public-sector final salary schemes, currently enjoyed by millions including civil servants, council employees and health workers. Well if he does this before the next election and also puts in words the entire MP benefit package will be limited I might just vote for him! However, I think its all words no action. If he does take action then I am sure he will tell the MP's don't worry instead you can claim £2,000,000 per annum in expenses or second home allowance etc
