Police called in on MPs expenses. Bunch of crooks

Can you believe it? The police are to be called in to investigate the theft of data that shows how MPs have been stealing from us.

Do you know why the current expenses system does not work?

I'll tell you: It was set up on the understanding that honest people would be operating under it.

How can the MPs expenses system be made to work?

I'll also answer that for you: By bringing in a system that assumes that dishonest people will be operating under it.

As I said in my earlier post: Expense claim systems don't rob the taxpayer, politicians do. Gordon Brown is claiming that the system is to blame. He's wrong, the system would be perfect if it wasn't for the corrupt sods using it. It's like being told that it's your fault for being burgled because even though you locked all your doors and windows, you failed to put the alarm on. What's a poor burglar to do?

This is just another example of how out of touch Gordon Brown is with the people. If he had even one ounce of sense, he would have done all he could to stop the police being called in. Clown.

Just let the rest of us claim the same expenses, then Gordon can save us all by balancing the books again!

Better if we can all claim the 'additional costs of going to work' and 'keeping our ''second'' home that enables us to go to work' if we live more than 0 miles from work.

Even better - that might save our pubs.......

It's enough to make one weep. You are quite right in all that you say.

Rewrite the Theft Act so that burglary is not a crime? Sorry, I'm getting mixed up with MPs.
