In regards to recent press reports about all the things an MP can buy for his London crash pad on allowances. i.e. new kitchen, furniture, kitchen white goods etc all totalling Â£20,000+ I totally fail to see why they don't get the same deal as military personnel on FIA and by that I mean a furnished let flat, take it or leave it! after all its only a crash pad during the week - or better still have an MP only barracks with a room with en-suite sink! and shared ablutions. After all they're only on a 4 or 5 year 'posting' between elections and serving their country alledgedly! But perhaps that would be against their human rights to live in the same type of accomadation as us!!!!!
