Default 82,000...

... it's grim having to live on such a small amount.

(announced same day as 20 UC cut)

Maybe at 77 yrs old he should retire. (as should all MPs when they reach 60).

Especially as most of his living expenses are covered by Parliamentary expenses. Not to mention his copper bottomed pension when he does retire.

He's been an MP almost 50 years. No idea of real life as he's spent his cosseted from life's bumps by privilege and good pay.

no, but he's complaining it's too little and he should be getting 100k, expecting the tax payer to pay him more at the same time denying low income people benefits.

82k is 3x the average UK income.

Larry and Paul do excellent political satire. Life imitates art? Some wag has started a Gofundme for Bottomley - last I heard it had reached 70.
