"a rise of about 11%"
I'm doing more than muttering :o]

No doubt most MPs will be supporting it to the hilt...:-)

Typical, don't do as I do, do as I say.

The minimum wage is going up from £5.73 to £5.80 in October, IIRC. That's a rise of 1.2%. They're getting 11%, are they? How VERY NICE for them.

11% ????? Aren't they regulated ?

Are these the same guys who (allegedly) fiddled their allowances ?

Why can't the papers keep quiet.

These pay rises only serve to irritate me. Do they like rubbing it in to the masses that earn a few quid per hour?

No bonus or pay rise for us this year but the CEO got a 28% one taking his income to £1.38million. Pay to the directors went from £4.2mil to £6.5mil in a year.

So meh! I really don't know why I clicked this thread.

No comment... other than to say why are we surprised?

  Bingalau 21:05 04 Aug 09

I think I get a rise next year because I will be eighty. Plans to spend it are being made at this very minute. If I add something to it I think I will be able to purchase a first class stamp. Good innit?
