Stop all laws where MPs/politicians are treated less restrictively

Comment 24th August 2010

There are numerous laws created in Parliament in which MPs are treated more favourably than ordinary people.

 

An example is that which set a maximum cap on a pension fund – EXCEPT for MPs.

 

Another is the EU law which scrapped duty free on items within the EU unless you are an MEP or one of the EU staff.

 

All laws must apply to people equally.   In some cases there are situations whereby the politicians must be treated more harshly but NEVER less.

Why does this matter?

The fundamental concept of rule by law is that all people are treated equally under the law.  There must never be situations where those who make the law are treated less harshly.
