Scrap any law which exempts those in authority

Comment 23rd July 2010

I believe that all those in authority/public service etc, should be subject to the same laws and expenses as the rest of the population.  This should include both the Commons and the Lords.

There should be no exemptions, to ensure that those in positions of power are subject to the same regulations and price rises such as fuel duty increases or the taxes levied on the general public in receipt of hospitality, free travel etc.

There should be no possibility of anyone making a rule/law/tax and exempting themselves.

Why does this matter?

This idea is important because public servants should be seen to be treated in the same way as the rest of the population and not  as overprivileged, overpaid and exempted from the results of their own legislation. 

If the population of this country have to spend all their working lives to get a derisory state pension then the amounts of money given to public servants for even short periods of office are deeply offensive.

The unedifying spectacle of the Commons and the Lords scrambling to protect themselves and their inflated incomes makes a mockery of an old and venerable institution.  Public Servants should be just that. Public service should not simply be an attractive way to become a millionaire.
