Mps’ Expenses: Mps Complain Of Being ‘Thrown To The Dogs’

Recommended Posts

Grown ups are given a certain amount of leeway on the understanding that you're not going to jeopardise your credibility by fiddling expenses. A little lost here, a little gained there, who cares.

mp's obviously don't fall in to that category. Make them get receipts for stamps.....:rolleyes:

If they'd changed the system so that MPs' staff and offices were provided directly by Parliament (and employment administered by Parliament in accordance with employment legislation, i.e. no appointing friends and relatives without a transparent recruitment process), then they wouldn't be having these problems.

No sympathy whatsoever.

When you think of the hoops public servants are made to jump through when claiming expenses, it makes you wonder what's so special about MPs? They are public servants claiming public money. The fact that they're out of pocket while awaiting reimbursement isn't unusual. That's how proper expenses systems work. Don't give them credit cards, for Gawd's sake.
