The chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance campaign group has said that the "public simply do not back the increase" to MPs pay.
Taxpayers will be furious that the pay rise comes at a time when MPs urge public pay restraint and the Chancellor tells us he can't afford to ease the burden of taxes on hard-pressed households and businesses.
Ipsa's own polling and research shows that the current level of pay to be broadly fair and that the public simply do not back the increase.
This announcement amounts to an unaccountable quango putting up two fingers to taxpayers. The rise must be rejected.
