    No doubt our knew MP Atherton will donate her rise to £82,000, plus expenses, to a local charity, I will not hold my breath as I wish to stay alive, the words,gravy train come to mind.
    Will she ensure that UK pensioners get a 3.1% rises? will she bugger.

    MPs to get 3.1% pay rise to £82,000 pa.
    Public sector workers real terms pay since 2010:
    Teachers = down by 10%
    Nurses = down by 12%
    Police = down by 14.6%
    Doctors = down by 22%
    Firefighters = down by 10%
    MPs = up by 20%

    No wonder Atherton gave up all those public sector jobs. She finally found one where she can legitimately screw people’s lives up and make a fortune. She hasn’t even had the chance to add on expenses yet!

    Quite a miserable post tbh.

    Sarah has done a lot by working hard for the wider community in various roles, (plus she has served her country in the military) which is more than i and, i will hazard a guess, more than you and her other detractors here have done; I am pretty damn sure Sarah has got into politics to carry on her work helping others and to say otherwise is churlish to say the least.

    From her website:
    I was brought up locally by my supportive parents; my father was from Chester and mother from Caernarfon. I attended a comprehensive school and after leaving at 16, I joined the regular army, serving in the Intelligence Corps. A few years later I left to start a family. With a need to re-skill, I trained as a nurse at the Maelor and Bangor University progressing to became a District Nurse. I subsequently became a Social Worker, here in North Wales, specialising in older people and mental health. In between I found time to run my own business in Wrexham, a small Micro Brewery, based on the Industrial estate. Whilst working in the public sector I gained an understanding of the issues that face us all in our daily lives and I brought that understanding to my role as a community Councillor. In this role I have dedicated the past few years in improving my community. Although I am now happily married to Nick, I brought my son up as a single parent. I know only too well what it is like to pay the bills, balance work

    Read, and please, show some respect for a person that has and always has had the interests of the community at heart.

    PS.
    My views on an MP’s pay and increases thereof i will reserve for discussion with my MP and not uselessly bandy them about on here which, is how it should be done.

    Thanks for all the advice and instruction, I hope you don’t mind if I ignore it all?
    This falsehood you present regarding Atherton’s wonderful altruism and care for others falls apart when we consider her decision to force refugee babies to become orphans by refusing them the possibility of being returned to their parents.
    She’s an abhorrent piece of work focused solely on supporting Johnson’s obviously racist beliefs.
    And, lets be honest, racism is why people voted for her.

    Regarding this
    ‘PS.
    My views on an MP’s pay and increases thereof i will reserve for discussion with my MP and not uselessly bandy them about on here which, is how it should be done.’

    If that’s the case why on earth are you reading and posting to a forum? Haha Ridiculous statement!

    Never met Ms Atherton & have no real wish to do so but I don’t recall reading anything about preventing babies being returned to their parents. Perhaps I don’t read the right papers.

    What would your view be? Atherton won’t let babies back to their parents – she’s forced them to become orphans. It doesn’t get any lower or more disgustingly racist than that does it?

    Metro – “What could be more humane than asking that unaccompanied child refugees stranded in Europe be able to join relatives in this country?”

    On the flip side, wouldn’t it also be humane to reunite parents with their children in Europe? There is something not quite right with this story. Understandable to send children here for a ‘better life’ but not leaving them to their own devices in another country. Why ever would they want to come to this overpopulated island? It’s certainly not for the climate. We are told that EU has better laws, better weather & our NHS is seriously underfunded.

    It does get lower, actually, as she’s an ex nurse and social worker who ought to know much better.

    When you become a nurse, for example, you sign up to the oath ‘above all do no harm.’

    By becoming a Tory MP and doing things like taking sides against learning disabled people who just want a supported home, Ms Atherton sprays harm around and has therefore flushed her principles down the toilet.
