The Bristol Mayor George Ferguson says he will contribute £1000 a month from his salary to the fund, which starts in April. His budget was passed in a council meeting last night (Tuesday 26 February) and includes cuts of £35 million.

He's got £1000 spare every month? Perhaps he should start looking at his own salary and cut that!

Good for him to give the help. If all the rich did what he is doing the world would be a better place.

Can I have a go at the mayor job? It would be lovely to be able to give all that away and still have a good standard of living.

The rich pay more! Yes! At last! That's what we want, isn't it?

– Kate Burrows

Let's get a fair means testing system in and then the rich have no option but to contribute more.
