Expenses story is hardly a surprise

PUBLISHED: 07:00 11 April 2014

MPs’ expenses are once again in the news ... Is that really a surprise?

How tempting it must be for them when they know that, if discovered, it will be a committee of MPs who decide what the outcome will be!

Is this what we understand by and what politicians call democracy?

Small wonder that voting numbers are diminishing...

A manifesto which promised to address this should receive the support of all voters ... but this is unlikely as long as the Tories continue to convince people that they’re doing a great job, and as long as we believe that fiction!
