We are not in this together

Ronnie Campbell is absolutely correct to state in his column entitled ‘We are not in this together’ (News Post Leader, March 27).

As public service employees struggle to manage on a one per cent increase (and many on a zero per cent increase) how will Mr Campbell and fellow MPs survive on an 11 per cent increase in salary?

Full marks, we are not all in this together.
