Doctors are being told that Saturdays are part of the normal working week so the Government can avoid paying them extra to do so.
So why can’t MPs also do the same for the same money?
A new petition calling on MPs to work six days a week has already gotten nearly 30,000 60,000 signatures in a few days.
As the author of the petition says:
I am a GP and although not a junior Dr, believe that Politicians are at least as important if not more important than the people they lead and who they set policies for. As “we are all in it together”, The policies and rules they set should apply to them as equally as for any members of the workforce.
Maybe it inspired this letter to the Telegraph, or vice versa

Either way, this plan sounds like a good idea – sign it!
