Britons angered by MP pay rise proposal

Independent watchdog suggests legislators should get an extra $12,000 in their pay packets from 2015.

    A proposed pay increase for British parliamentarians is coming in for severe criticism.

    An independent watchdog says MPs should, on average, get an extra $12,000 in their pay packets from 2015.

    That has angered public servants, whose pay rises are capped at one percent to curb government spending.
