UK MPs set to pocket a £10k pay rise

British MPs have been prepared for a controversial future pay rise of up to £20,000.

British Members of Parliament (MPs) have been prepared for a dramatic future pay rise of around £10,000 in a move that could spark public anger.

The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) is considering a £10,000 rise in MPs salaries from £65,738 to more than £75,000 a year.

Ipsa is set to bring forward its initial proposals for discussion next month, although the main changes will not come into effect until after the general election in 2015.

However, any significant rise to MPsâ„¢ salaries could spark public fury as British households are bearing the brunt of the UK’s current financial squeeze.

Regarding this issue, British Prime Minister David Cameronâ„¢s famous quote Å“Weâ„¢re all in this together” proves otherwise while the UK society can be seen as divided in terms of financial inequality.
