I wish my work had the perks an MP enjoys

I WENT to my boss and asked him for a 10% pay rise. I told him I would be taking a few other jobs, so might not be around all the time I am paid for.

As we have a busy evening shift, I also told him that we should have bars in work. A wee drink helps make work interesting.

I said that, even if he quadrupled my salary to £70,000 a year, I would need a food subsidy.

What he said is unprintable. I took it as a no.

In the interests of efficiency, all election candidates should competitively tender and state the salary they would accept for the job, undertake to do it full-time while sober, and to pay for their own burgers from McDonalds.
