    Best wayI suppose....he was out of a job come next election anyway

    I hope he enjoys less success as an angler than he did as a labour mp charged with the destuction of both an economy and a country.

    Nice fat pension no doubt...Paid for by the taxpayer

    Unlike my own....very thin and skinny...paid for by me.

    enjoy the retirement...

    Fair play to the lad is what I say.

    In a world of commercial nescesity he has managed to hold down a job that will pay far more than I ever earn, and still have enough time to catch manymore specimin fish than me. And surely he has done a little bit to promote angling, which is far more than most MPs do or will do.

    Jealous, yes I am.

    Martin Salter was one of only 4 sitting Labour MP's to actually increase his majority at the last election - I would have thought that he was a 'shoe-in' at the next election.

    Martin has worked tirelessly on behalf of the nation's anglers and deserves our thanks and praise.

    That said, I am sure that there would be a 'seat' for him in the Angling Trust - if he wants it, that is.

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    Yep,I suppose there will be a seat for him...

    With a smallretainer and perks?

    I expect he will end up with more seats than a table and chair wholesalers...

    Hahahaha! Mate of yours is he Lee?

    I have a low opinion of MP's I'm afraid, and make no mistake any MP will turn his back on those that trust them and not lose a wink of sleep over it. Party before common sense, party before the wishes of their constituents, easy bought and glib liars, apart from that they aren't too bad.


    Politicians, like diapers, have to be changed frequently - and for the very same reason
