Think about all the sporting competitions that go on around the world. Which can you name where those who come second pick-up the same prize money as the winners?
That’s right – Bugger All! That’s the point of winning!
So when a political party doesn’t get elected why do they still get paid the same as the winners? Utter madness! What’s the point in winning? The money is the same and you have a lot of work to do. Come second and enjoy the easy life!
Well bollox to all that! The winners can have a basic salary of £95k and the losers can be grateful that we’ll pay them £25k. They’ll go and get second jobs anyway so they are not going to go poor! Enough of them are loaded anyway so it probably won’t even bother them.
