When our system of power is still so clearly wide open to exploitation and personal gain, it is entirely unsurprising that the job continues to attract the sort of unsavoury, shamelessly selfish personalities who are clearly only in it for themselves.

MPs are currently paid almost three times the average UK wage. But what would happen if MPs basic salaries – especially referring to those MPs who are currently in power – were directly linked to their own performance?

Ensuring that our elected officials are only able to get a pay rise when the rest of us do is a surefire way of increasing public trust in politicians to truly do the right thing for the country.
