Sorry, I didn’t know senators were poorly paid
I really do not understand what is really going on in the corridors of power, and to some extent in the media.
Reading the article dealing with senators living in poverty has set my mind alight on this subject.
I was always under the impression that these high flyers always received about average salaries and allowances in comparison with the vast amount of ordinary citizens.
If this is not true then the general public has been misled for decades.
However, if it is true then some one is again trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the taxpayers, in trying to convince them that the recent licence for higher salaries as and when these politicians and professionals thinks its necessary is needed and justified.
