Dear Editor,

I see the Opposition MPs have decided to “collect” their pay rise.

 Wowwee, this is even though they protested in the paper that it was immoral, unjustified and wrong for any MP to get a pay rise.

Hello – so let me get this straight: The Opposition have said no to the pay rise because it is wrong.

But today they say but we will take the money anyway and use it for their “constituency work”.

Umm, hello, isn’t that what the government is saying that this pay rise is because of the work they do.

I know, how about this: How about Tina Brown and her MPs all collect the extra immoral dirty money they will pocket on the first of July and each fortnight donate it to a charity. Of course they won’t, because their words went quiet when the money went into their bank accounts.
