Accomodation for MPs

#1
I've had it just about up to here with bl**dy MPs, bloated busybodies with their snouts firmly in the trough.

I've always hated them of course, but I just read an article which really takes the cake.

It's the last straw, I'm telling you.

http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/politics/threelinewhip/march2008/perk-too-far.htm

On the plus side, however, I reckon that I have come up with a winning suggestion for accomodating the lazy, sleazy, lying, over-privileged scumbags.

If it is necessary for MPs to have housing in or near Westminster, this could be provided for them in some central facility in London, a sort of barracks block, if you will.

This would be provided free of charge but no cash alternative would be offered. Those wishing to live elsewhere would have to fund it from their own pocket.

Here's the clincher: accomodation and meals would be provided at the same standard as enjoyed by soldiers in the British Army. No worse, but certainly no better.

Improvements would only be permitted where it coul be shown that soldiers had already been provided with them.

That'd teach 'em.

For good measure the ablutions would be on the other side of the road.
....on the other side of the gravel road...I think?


I believe that MPs need to be pulled out of the trough and be replaced by a cadre of selfless, puritanical, constitutionally conservative zealots. This body of men and women would have a publicly articulated set of values and standards, would not be lobbied or influenced except by argument. They would not need to worry about their outside careers because they would only be MPs for three years, with their "civvy" job kept open for them.

Indeed they should be protected by a piece of legislation as excellent and "robust for purpose" as, oh say the RFA 96?

Being RMP, I was totally offended until I read the link.

There again, the description is pretty close to us as well!!!!!!

Desert Roses and DTL's - now THAT would be interesting. You'd then see more than one MP in the sh1t.

Oh - and no cumfybum!

Move them into Hounslow where 2 Mercians are at the moment, then they may start to realise the actual state of the luxury* accommodation our troops live in.

*instead of luxury insert rat infested

But dahling, you simply don't understand how costly it is to eat at The Ivy five nights a week.

The graph shows the daily food allowance provided by the government for various groups.

If you're not happy, I'd suggest kicking the sh1t out of an old lady and getting sent to prison. Note that you'll need to REALLY kick the sh1t out of her to get banged up. Due to prison overcrowding, competition for prison places is more fierce than competition for school places at a drug free comprehensive.
