So Harriet Harman has pledged to “look again“ at the issue of blacking out details on MPs’ published expenses claims.
Staring at a black piece of paper with the odd figure peeking out isn’t very enlightening.
And MPs’ could also face up to a year in jail under plans for new criminal charges for Parliamentarians.
Strange that we should have to consider our leaders as nothing more than a bunch of crooks and vagabonds (well they do like to flip their principal residence), out to screw you (the taxpayer) if they can and the need to legislate accordingly.
I think it may be along time before we can say we are proud of our parliament again.
Maybe it’s a period of our history that should be blacked out.
