Default politicians/performance related pay?

PERFORMANCE RELATED PAY FOR POLITICIANS
A radical idea for Performance Related Pay. After all - if we don't perform at work we get the sack right?!

All politicians have to quit ALL other jobs. Sell ALL shares. Cannot re-invest for 12mths AFTER they stop being an MP.

Give them a salary of, say 100,000.

BUT (and here's the catch) they only get the percentage of the people who turned out to vote in their constituency. Not just who for them you understand - the entire turnout.

So - if only 20% of the voters bothered to vote, they would have to do the job for 20k. That should get the feckers interested in what Joe Public thinks about policitians.

WHAT DO YOU RECKON???? GOOD IDEA!

Unless you are a conservative MP in staunchly Labour county for example, Yes!

Better still if you have an empty warehouse and a few thousand unused postal votes......

Wouldn't matter as you have little chance of becoming an MP anyway, also it was based on turnout, not who voted for you.....

That would mean that a Labour MP would receive cash for people turning out to vote Conservative for example. I'm NOT lovin' it!
