Default $200,000 isn't a lot of money

Quote:
South Australian Liberal senator Lucy Gichuhi has told a Kenyan television program that her $200,000 salary is "not a lot of money" in Australia.

The comments made on Kenyan Citizen TV were uploaded online earlier this year, but have just come to light.

In the video, the senator was asked about her salary.

"My salary here it is on the website, I don't look at it because it comes to the bank, but it's not a lot of money by the way," she said.

"Politicians and I mean Australia politicians work so hard, 24/7, nobody can compensate them for the work they do."

After being probed again, she revealed how much she is paid per year.

"Two hundred thousand Australian dollars in a whole year that's not a lot of money," she said

The thing is MPs are always going to be paid 'too much' in the eyes of the public, but I think there's a good argument for paying them very well. Private sector managers and other public roles often get paid more. The issue is that, at least with our MPs, they publicly talk down their pay but they're clearly not content with 70-80k because despite saying they work extremely hard and have no time for anything else, the majority have no problem finding time for 2nd and even 3rd incomes from various directorships, consultancy work and so on that nets them tens of thousands of pounds a year on top.

IIRC the entire cabinet at one point under Cameron (and possibly still now) were all multi-millionaires and had lucrative incomes. The book 'Parliament Ltd' is an excellent (and depressing) insight into how bad it's got. It's hard to see how they're not leveraging their role in parliament and government for financial gain, whether it's lowering corporate tax rates, voting against measures to end tax avoidance or just blatant shit like having shares in BAE and then voting for anything that'll increase their order book for missiles and drones.

I think it'd be better to pay MPs significantly more as a salary, simplify the expenses system, and to ban second jobs. Holding shares as well needs to go somehow, I don't mind them holding investments but it needs to decoupled from their votes in parliament. It's not unreasonable that if you're an MP that you dedicate your time to that chiefly and be paid very well for it so it removes any possible reason for needing to supplement it. You can say they don't need to supplement it now, but some will say they live in London and blah blah, so paying them 150k or something would definitely put it to bed. Not enough money? Fuck off then.
