Social justice needed

Re: If I was a senator, June 23- 29

Your note was a most refreshing comment on political issues. Now if a similar one could get into MPs base salaries (higher than senators), expenses and multi-million-dollar retirement schemes subsequent to only six years (while the ordinary peons receive poverty level funding) beginning 10 years later, there might be an inroad to establishing some social justice.
