I read at the weekend that prior to today's publication of MP's expense claims, a large number of them had suddenly realised they had inadvertently made a few mistakes. They were apparently allowed to pay back the oversights with no further action taken. Now, call me Mr Picky but if someone in the forces so much as considers a false claim for Â£4.25 (or whatever a 5 hr NRSA claim is) then it's off the great big military hanging judge with a one way ticket to the outside world and loss of any pension accrued (and rightly so). Surely, our elected MPs should be above reproach and brimming with integrity. Sadly, it would appear that at least some of them are nothing more than a bunch of lying, money grabbing, self-serving, thieving gypsy bastards. Are these really the kind of people we want making life or death decisions on our behalf? Or am I, perhaps, being unfair?
