MPs’ expenses: auditor refuses to sign off Commons accounts over unsubstatiated claims
MPs’ failure to provide evidence to support nearly £14 million in claims has led the nation’s official auditor to refuse to sign off the accounts of the House of Commons.
In a highly embarrassing move Amyas Morse, head of the National Audit Office (NAO), found that the Commons authorities had failed to obtain receipts to justify £2.6 million in claims.
Another £11.3 million of expenditure had been incurred on items which the House could not prove was necessary for parliamentary purposes.

Just when they thought it had all blown over. Its going to ruin a lot of MP's Crimbo now as they wonder if they are going to have to resign or perhaps even do some bird. :o

Surely Nick Clegg, in the coalition spirit of compromise, will sign them off...

Just get Price Waterhouse in. They'll sign anything, no questions asked.

MPs won't learn and history will repeat itself. They treat it all like a game and yet people wonder why the country is such a toilet.

I tried running a company in Britain for 14 years and got scrutinised by Customs. It makes you wonder why such scrutiny never applied to MPs.

MPs and MEPs are there for themselves. That's all you need to know about these parasites.

Harsh but 100% fair.

If you claim £51.85 in JSA due to the high youth unemployment, you must apply for 3 jobs and give proof, attend a weekly/fortnightly meeting, to get your £51.85 to buy food/electric/gas etc., MPs propose a 40 hour work week too.

Perhaps we should make MPs sign on at their local jobcentre for their expenses?

I disagree. MPs don't think its a game, they think they deserve the expenses. They believe they are right, and see the public reaction to their corruption as hysteria.

Corruption is becoming normalised.

Once landlordism had become normalised, this was always the next step.

They think they are part of the "entitled classes" like sponging bankers and council CEO's on £200k per year.

I think you may have it the wrong way around. If I remember correctly corruption in MPs was normalised in the previous conservative government as a result of MPs not wanting the bad press of increasing their own salaries. The excessively lax expense regime ( such as the John Lewis list ) allowed them to reward themselves in line with high level professions ( doctors, lawyers ) and senior managers in the private sector. Like many things Labour didn't change it and carried on with the same system despite initially being elected with removing corruption as one of their election promises.

Once you've got corruption as a fundamental system at the top, it tends to spread... in this case down to landlordism.

...and useless footballers on £100k a week, and landlords exploiting a dehumanised underclass.

The trouble is that everyone believes they are worth it.

I think you're spot on there. Like most people, they find it easy enough to see faults in others but cannot see them in themselves. I honestly don't think that most of them, MPs, banksters, whoever, do think that they've done anything wrong. They'll sooner look for faults in those criticising them (probably spouting on about jealousy or something). Unfortunately they are the ones who make the rules, but something similar would happen no matter who makes the rules. People who wouldn't behave like that in any position of power aren't greedy, narcisstic, backstabbing and self-serving enough to get into power and / or wealth. Conversely those who do get to the top are generally the worst.
