Actually I think it was Labour that received that notice from the Voters.
i LOVE IT!! I often see Kate swanning aroung North canterbury in her RM Williams shirt, pretending to be a caring local member, but am never able to engage her on important issues. She simply wants to be the country squire(ess)
I think I’ll print a copy of this and present it to her the next time I see her.
And this is why I hate MMP – no matter what we think, we can’t vote her out, only the Notional party can do that.
Of course it’s not quite right to say she gets nothing. MPs get three months salary if they lose their jobs at an election.
Sad. Sad. Sad. A chance to innovate lost!
Along with the 3 months notice don’t they get ‘Super’, heavily discount air travel & use of cars in some cases etc etc? Please correct me if I am wrong
BWL – Bursting with laughter
@Robb : a small number of politicians who have been here for donkeys years get super and air travel. The rest of us don’t – that went in the 1990′s I understand. We get our own super that we’ve been contributing to – but whatever, MPs are better off than workers when they lose their jobs.
What law says they are “not entitled to anything”?
@Gooner and others – listen to the debate at 4.15 and you will find out.
Gooner. In our legal system, an obligation (like an obligation to pay redundancy) has to be created in law to exist.
No law says they are entitled to anything. Which means they have no legal entitlement to anything.
Currently, you only get redundancy if it’s in your contract. 80% of unionised workers have it. 80% of non-unionised workers don’t.
