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.
