MPs demand £23,000 tax-free grant to hide expenses

Iv’e been campaigning with other MPs to stop details of orr expense claims being made public by changing the system so that they do not have to submit receipts.  Days after the High Court ordered the publication of every receipt submitted by MPs, a committee reviewing parliamentary expenses is proposing that they should be able to claim the full £23,000 second-home allowance automatically as an annual “block grant”.
What’s the difference between MPs’ expenses and stealing? asks Richard Littlejohn. I will tell you, we MPs work very hard for your money, and clearly we deserve more. Some MPs with other talents need to work more than one job to get by, now being an MP is a full time job so im against this. We should all get a free second home in London near Westminster to reduce our travel needs, so we can do our jobs better.

After all there are lots of people wealthier than us so its not as if we would be the richest in the country, though clearly we deserve to be. Why we sometimes work late into the evenings, and get no overtime no matter how many surgeries we do or parliamentary sessions we attend.
