They just don’t get it!

In a world with £65,000 a year salaries, gold plated final pensions, four star hotels, unlimited expenses, overseas fact finding trips our local Labour politicians live in a very different world from that of their constituents.

This £34,000 pro-rata non- job  from Healey.

Parliamentary Policy Researcher (part-time)
Working For:
John Healey MP (Wentworth and Dearne)
£34,000 pro rata (20 hours per week)
Job Details:
Labour MP John Healey is looking for a researcher (part-time, 20 hours a week) to work with him in the Commons.

> From a Tweet on Healey`s Twitter account.

Those who work for MPs work really hard, often without much recognition; we should be able to pay staff better

Pay much better than £34k pro-rata, don’t make me laugh, a newly qualified staff nurse in charge of a ward of patients earns much less than £34k, no wonder Healey is out of touch with reality, better stick to property development!

Aneurin Bevan.

  1. Dear Aneurin Bevan,

    You make a fair point indeed with your comparison on salaries and the downright rank unfairness to which you rightly draw attention.

    I couldn’t believe that such lowly pay would be as you described, so I checked the NHS Jobs website – – and found this revelation –

    A fully qualified NHS Emergency Medical Despatcher, working shifts which cover 24/7, and taking the full range of 999 emergency medical calls receives only £16,110 – £19,077 + 25% unsocial hours allowance.

    And an Ambulance Paramedic (Experienced) receives only £21,176 to £27,625 pa –

    What an utter indictment of the shameful values that our country puts on those dedicated, humanitarian men and women who make a defined career choice to serve their country in our NHS, and who can then expect to watch as MPs, MEPs, RMBC Councillors, and those RMBC Officers drag in telephone number salaries, perks, benefits, gifts and hospitality, and of course the wall-2-wall junketing that Da Rovrum Corn Fed Grunters, Muppets and Clowns are now infamous for across the globe.

    Only last week we had the shameful spectacle of Da Corpulent One, on his telephone number salary, wringing his hands and crocodile-tearing that “wi gonna ave ta find t’munni frum someweer, cos t’Tawreez ent gen us eenuff, rayt, right, reight”.

    Yeah, you can be sure his allowances and those of his khaki-tongued lickspittles are in no danger whatsover, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
