Watch: Man in Question Time audience nails it over MPs' pay

Price tags will be applied to prescriptions to tell patients how much they're costing the NHS. So why not stick price tags onto MPs too?

The Question Time panel was discussing the government's decision to start telling patients how much their prescriptions cost the taxpayer.

Drug packets that costs the NHS more than £20 will be marked with a label stating that they have been "funded by the UK taxpayer" along with the total price that the prescription costs the health service.

The move inspired a man in the audience to make the ingenious suggestion that the same price tag be stuck onto each MP.

With our elected representatives set to be awarded with a 10 per cent pay rise from £67,070 to £74,000, the sticker will have to be much bigger than the price tags stuck on prescription packages.
