MPs' pay rise: BBC contrasts socialist MPs' approach

BBC Coventry & Warwickshire highlights that Socialist Party member Dave Nellist only took a worker's wage when he was an MP, and he condemns the pay rise being given to MPs now, while public sector workers' pay is held down:

"As many MPs rush to condemn proposals to give them an 11% pay rise, few have taken the lead of the former member for Coventry South.

"From his election in 1983 to his deselection by Labour in 1992, Dave Nellist kept less than half his salary.

"Along with two other Labour politicians - Terry Fields, MP for Liverpool Broadgreen, and Pat Wall, MP for Bradford North - Mr Nellist chose to 'get by' on a wage closer to that of the people he represented".
