Conservative MP moans he earns close to the minimum wage

David Wilshire the Conservative MP for Spelthorne, who was behind Section 28, is now moaning that because of the hours he works he earns dangerously close to the minimum wage.

This is the same MP who claimed his own company £105,500 using his Parliamentary expenses. The Directors of the company are erm, him and his girlfriend. The company is not publicly registered and doesn't file accounts. David Wilshire MP also could not prove what the money had been spent on!

He claims that neither he nor his girlfriend have benefited financially from his company or this £105,500 payment - but the fact that he cannot prove what the money has been spent on is shocking, even a basic company accounts would have to show those facts by keeping basic accounts, copies of invoices and receipts so why can't he?

I am pleased he is standing down, but in the old days as it were he would have resigned now causing a by-election and to be honest if David Cameron was as tough on the expenses matter as he claims surely he would have insisted David Wilshire resign now?

This shows that teflon Dave is not as decisive a leader as he claims and he cannot stand up to those within his own party.

So both Alan Duncan and now David Wilshire have moaned about the amount they earn and the standards of living, so here is my challenge, let's swap jobs and salaries for three months and see who complains first, my boss or the constituents of their constituencies?

MPs earn around £65,000 per year, that is over twice what I earn and for the last nine months my salary has had to pay for two homes and pay for me and my partner, and yes we have had some really tough times so my answer to David Wilshire MP is simple, if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen and let someone else have a go.

Shut up moaning David Wilshire and Alan Duncan and get on with the job you are paid for.
