Oh my goodness!(OMG)
"MPs were being prevented from Ã¢â‚¬Å“carrying out their parliamentary duties and deterred from making legitimate claims, to the detriment of their constituents and the democratic processÃ¢â‚¬Â. That explains an awful lot - we're in the doledrums(sic) because MP's can't fiddle their expenses satisfactorily.
""For example, the committee recommends that Ipsa be broken up with duties being returned to the House - reintroducing the arrangements of the past; and that the House, once again, should be given the powers to decide for themselves what sort of system of expenses they benefit from". I'll have some of that too. I'll phone the benefits people tomorrow and tell them exactly how much I need. The public will be equally happy about that. I suppose they're all for doing away with the old unworkable (read unprofitable) company car tax too. The lunatics want to take back control of the asylum.
I don't intend this as a political argument, I just disagree with having Military Police in Westminster ..(he said hoping to circumvent the forum rules).
