Politician benefits outweigh services | Letter to the editor


Our highest politicians receive full pay and many other benefits for life after just one short term in office. So should those working in the red- light districts for an equally short time receive the same benefits for their services provided?

After all, don’t they provide a very similar service to the public?
After all theirs is optional, the former is mandatory.
