More chance of finding 7 dwarfs that hasn’t fuc*ed Snow White.

David Cameron has come under fire after Downing Street said it was ‘a private matter’ how he spent a £7,000 rise in his MP’s pay.

The Prime Minister’s official spokeswoman refused to say whether he would donate the 10% pay hike to charity as other Parliamentarians have vowed to do.

All MPs’ salaries will go up from £67,060 to £74,000 following a decision today by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA).

But the decision comes just a week after millions of nurses, teachers and other public sector workers saw their pay capped by George Osborne at 1% for another four years.

As Greece is being taken apart (planned along time ago)

Protesters have hurled petrol bombs at riot police after surrounding the Greek parliament ahead of a final deadline for the country’s €86 billion bailout deal.
Police responded with tear gas against dozens of hooded anti-austerity demonstrators who set ablaze parts of Syntagma square in central Athens.
Officers also used pepper spray to fight back youths in the 12,000-strong crowd who were hurling Molotov cocktails and rocks at them. The youths, some carrying clubs and wearing balaclavas, had mingled with ordinary protesters when crowds gathered as MPs decided the country’s fate.
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has angered many in his anti-austerity party and leftwing supporters by throwing his weight behind the bills, which he and eurozone counterparts agreed to on Monday in order to unlock a new rescue to debt-laden Greece worth up to €86 billion.
