LETTER:Market for MPs

From Mr Simon Herbertson

Sir: Henceforth, at every general election, on the ballot paper beside the candidates' name and political party, put the annual salary each individual prospective MP is prepared to work for in Parliament, up to a maximum of, say, pounds 50,000, the bill to be paid out of the local council tax.

We're all supposed to scrabble around in an undignified manner undercutting each other for work - why can't they join in the fun, too?

Yours faithfully,

Simon Herbertson
