according to the BBC news the Welsh Assembly are in for an 18% pay rise. In a time of recession ,wage control and food banks how can these idiots even consider such a thing?

shame?. these representatives are so detached from society they feel no 'shame'. any pay rises are a reward for keeping the 'status quo' and going along with whatever guidelines that are given to them. they are only there to give you the voter a sense of representation in government. with any government it's play along and reap the rewards, cause trouble and you're out. always has been and always will be. simples

Have they not realised that our country is in debt and that this is a very inappropriate time to talk about an increase in pay.

The whole of Wales is currently facing difficult economic circumstances and this in turn creates pressure on families trying to cope on a day to day basis.

If they have even a modicum of family values they will shelve the idea of a pay raise and concentrate on doing the job they are played for, they should remember that they are there to serve them country and not to line their pockets.

I think Westminster MPs are due to get a similar rise in pay as well. This is just hypocrisy and double standards from an out of touch UK political system again, both public and private sector workers have not had a decent pay rise for years, benefits have been cut and we are constantly being told by the Government that the country is heavily in debt and the deep austerity measures and cuts must continue.

Don’t forget we’re all in this together, only most of us are in it more than some!

Its sickening.

Its an unnecessary level of government that many of us didn't want in the first place. Its bleeding us dry.

I'd love to see the back of it!
