This seems like a pretty good idea to me:

If MPs keep giving up powers to Europe they should be paid less

So says Peter Lilley MP in a Ten Minute Rule Bill he's presenting to Parliament today. It's true - our Parliament has given the EU control of migration, agriculture, trade, fisheries and vast swathes of business and industrial regulation, so surely MPs' pay should be reduced accordingly.


The same question perhaps ought to be asked about the pay and privileges of the Ministers responsible for those areas...
