The opinion is often heared that you pay peanuts you get monkeys. Well we pay top dollar and still get monkeys. Half of these venal and corrupt MP's are unemployable in the real world, they earned tuppence before they became an MP and are not worth the £65k basic salary.

I'd say they should receive exactly the equivalent amount of Income Support appropriate for their situation - after all, they have second homes, so don't have any dependents to claim for (but would be able to claim the housing allowance to the level permitted for single people for housing benefit), plus actual staff wages and pens, paper, etc. Oh yes, and the people dealing with their payment would be JobCentre Plus/local council staff, they would have to fulfill all the conditions in exactly the same way as a benefit claimant has to (eg, make a phone call to make an appointment for a phone call, to be told to go into an office, to wait around to be told there was no appointment, etc, etc). And they would have to wait for the claims to be dealt with before eating, as all personal savings/family income would be prohibited in the period, as this would mean that they would know how people feel waiting 8 weeks for a claim to be dealt with.
Bet things would change then.
