A vindictive, spiteful AND PATHETIC act by Miliband…………come and bottle him with us October 18TH Dennis
Filed under Uncategorized
Probably was done through spite as well, but Skinner is way, way past it anyway. He rarely, if ever, goes against his beloved Labourshite. He also, for many years until he reached it that is, said he was going to retire at 65 because ‘ the working man has to, and so should we’ (MPs). Nineteen years later he’s still raking it in. Hypocrite.
*shrug* perhaps he decided that as the “working man” (and woman) now has to pretty much work until he drops again, as the retirement age gets ever higher and the value of pensions ever lower, that his statement stopped applying some time ago. Seventeen years takes us back to the beginning of the Blair NuLab years, perhaps he understood at that point that retirement for the working man was soon going to be a complete fairy tale.
I’d rather have much older politicians that have experience in the wider world of work (away from politics, law & finance) and who have actually had a life beyond that provided for them by Daddy/Mummy’s (spouse’s) wealth & connections. At the very least, studying politics should make a person ineligible for public office 😉
FYI Skinner is not raking it in – he is a man of integrity in many respects and he is the only MP to draw average median earnings as his salary, the other 40k or so left in the treasury coffers.
He leaves 40k unclaimed! Why not take it and pass it on for something useful.
Ooops, seventeen years later I meant to say.
Dennis Skinner is an old school left wing MP and IMO deserves respect. However as posted above he was happy to remain on the Westminster ‘gravy train’ well past his sell by date and although sacking him will be an unpopular decision on the ‘left’ Miliband showed his ruthless side. After all politics is about power.
