  4. I heard a discussion on the radio today and people were saying they felt sorry for the MPs.Do they not realise we are talking about professional conmen/women here........................Politicians :!:
     
  5. The proposals sound eminently fair and reasonable to me - reimbursement for necessary expenditure so that MPs do not have to subsidise their employment from their own pockets.

    Salaries and other opportunities arising from being an MP are not inconsiderable and there should be no question about whether we are going to get the right csalibre of people looking for a carrer in public office (an argument I have heard from time to time by various individuals bleating over "erosion of remuneration and dilution of incentive to serve"
     
  6. There has been one slight positive outcome from the MPs expenses scandal, I actually heard Peter Hain speak some sense on question time last night, must be the first time ever.
