I ask, “Can it be fair or right or just or justifiable in any way possible being a Member of the Parliament and doing paid work for an assumed FAIR MEDIA as a writer and speaker?”

According to the U.K government website, the basic salary for an MP from 1 April 2020 is £81,932 per year. And the U.K parliament says that on top of this MPs also receive expenses to cover the costs of running an office, employing staff, having somewhere to live in London or their constituency. And travelling between parliament and their constituency.

Now,  the last three ideas paid to Members of Parliament, “having somewhere to live in London or their constituency and travelling between parliament and their constituency,” sound to me totally illogical. For that is the purpose of getting paid £81,932 with a luxurious salary.

Citizens of this country work and with their salaries pay their rents and expenses. That is called, fair world.

Nevertheless, let us stick to the theme of today and explain here why is it unacceptable and sickening to be a paid politician and yet do paid work by writing or speaking from Media Monopolies?

To begin with my philosophy, you are paid as a politician or public servant in Britain to carry out the work of a Member of Parliament as a politician of this country. Yet, you find time and you find reason to use a holy idea, that is the assumed Fair Media, to write as a writer and speak as a speaker or Radio/TV presenter and get money?

This must be a joke. How can one assume in any way or form that our society is a fair society when politicians use media for paid work? Are you joking? Politicians in the same time being journalists and getting paid?

This is but DYSTPOPIA of the worst forms.

Further, I also ask, how do you achieve this connection between politicians and media? Because myself as an independent thinker and for ten years writing continuously and independently cannot even get my right to be heard and participate in society. While you, politicians, so easily find empty spots in the blogs of media monopolies or screens of media monopolies and participate? And all your speaking and writing is highly paid?

And what hope is this for the future generations? A hope of death and oppression and slavery?

Some facts, please? now you ask.

Obviously, there are plenty of facts. For there are well known politicians who have been paid in the past for writing or speaking for media monopolies. Such as is our current Prime Minister called,  Boris Johnson. While politicians who still are paid for working for media are  Ms Diane Abbott, David Lammy, Jacob Rees-Mogg, Sadiq Khan and more.

Even though the history of payment of politicians is ruled and controlled with “secrecy.” Still we have certain facts that show they are paid thousands.

Here is the Daily Mail writing in 2011 and saying that MPs are paid thousands of pounds of licence fee money simply to appear on the BBC.

And here is the I News writing in February 2020.

(The MPs who make the most from their side jobs, as Downing Street mulls a ban on BBC staff speeches, https://inews.co.uk/news/politics/bbc-licence-fee-mps-interests-side-jobs-dominic-cummings-398562 )

Boris Johnson was paid £275,000-a-year by Daily Telegraph contract as a columnist, something he has had to abandon as Prime Minister.”

Jacob Rees-Mogg, has earned, according to I News, between £250 and £520 a piece for several articles for the Daily Telegraph and The Times, in addition to £9,600 for presenting a show on LBC. Thing which is not declared for the time between 19th October 2021 and 4 January 2022 reports of Register of Members’ Financial Interests for MPs.

Ms Dianne Abbot is paid almost £1,000 for a few hours of work with The Guardian and an appearance at the BBC between 14 December 2021 and 4 January 2022 says the report for the Register of Members Financial Interests.

While according to The Spectator writing on 8 November 202, “David Lammy has earned more than £66,000 since November 2020 through speaking gigs and radio appearances, speaking at proud bastions of capitalism like Blackstone, Deloitte and Facebook.

 (Which Labour MPs earn the most? https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/fact-check-labour-on-second-jobs)

The report for the Register of Members Financial Interests also says that David Lammy was paid by the LBC radio, £30,670  between 5 January 2021 and 4 January 2022.

What is wrong with this? you ask.

How am I supposed to trust Media as a citizen when  I see politicians getting paid for working for the same media that is supposed to hold accountable?

This form of corruption in our society is UNJUSTIFIABLE. And it is not an Einstein equation to see deep roots of corruption here. Rather, it is an open abuse of power. Favouritism and cronyism between two supposed distinct, different  and opposing classes, the media and political class.

They are balling!

It is corruption. Open corruption. And unreal depth of abuse of the idea of fairness and fair society. A continuing tradition of abuse of power. Horrible, just horrible and sickening to see politicians paid for speaking or writing for media monopolies.

Say that British people have died. Say that there is no writers in this country. Say that there is no speakers and no talent this country. Say that all the British people have perished forever. And now all SOCIAL POWER should be shared between WRITERS of NEWS MEDIA MONOPOLIES and the writers of the U.K Parliament.

You may ask here, oh well, but you are not British! So who are you, an inferior Albanian immigrant demanding us to change our ways of life or telling us what to do? Go to your country.

True, I may be an immigrant and inferior in your subconscious U.K media thinking that for over a decade denies and abuses my rights to be heard and participate. But I have over a decade in this country and see things with a foreign eye, a different vision, a different form of suffer and pain and struggle.

And have no interest on political power or media climbing. For I have come out with a pen and paper against all the British imperialist and oppressive upper classes. And always, I have showed but love for the oppressed British people, that I intend to enlighten through truth and reason and what is fair.

And to be honest, U.K now is my country, the political class of Albania needs as well to change a lot. And I am not a fan of Albanian political class as well.

Nevertheless, I am not telling to you what to do or change your ways of life, but suggesting to Britain that it is high time to break with abusive Old Tradition of corruption and abuse of power that has politicians work as journalists as well.  

For this tradition and this way of life and doing is sickening not only to me as an Albanian immigrant in this country, but to the ideal of fairness and social justice as I aforementioned.

In short, this practice of seeing politicians paid for writing or speaking for NEWS MEDIA MONOPOLIES, that it is supposed to hold politicians accountable, is sickening. It is horrible. It is nasty. It is abusive and offensive  to the idea of fairness and to all human ideals. Such as equality and freedom.

So, then, it is unacceptable to be a Paid Politician and yet do paid work by writing or speaking from Media Monopolies because it abuses all human ideals that exist on earth. Human ideals that are thought and created by the biggest minds and hands of…
