We’re so not in this together

Last week our overpaid, overpensioned, expenses-fiddling MPs headed off for a couple of months summer holidays. After the expenses-fiddling scandal, you might have thought that our MPs would show a little more caution when stealing our money. You’d have been wrong – in the last couple of years, the amount our MPs have claimed in expenses has gone up by about 30%. So, as our thieving MP’s fly to their holiday homes in France and Italy, it’s perhaps worth remembering that we really aren’t in this together. The graph below shows the percentage of national wages taken by the top 1% – money-laundering bankers, underperforming FTSE bosses and multimillionaire expenses-fiddling MPs. Their share of the pie keeps on going up and up and up.
