Instead of claiming victory, we should be descending on the 646 like a pack of Wolves demanding more accountability and the reduction in the massive State.
MP's staying in London should not be paid to have second homes, they can go into 'suitable' accomodation, that is an asset for the taxpayer. Not transferring assets to them
Iain Dale is claiming glory for Tom Steinberg. Who I've never heard of.
And from the Pengiun on the same subject
Bottler Brown, The Supreme Leader and Saviour Of The World, has once again demonstated that he has so little courage when it comes to a fight that if you used a very powerful magnifying glass you still wouldn't be able to find it.
He has suddenly decided to drop the vote on covering up MPs expenses, despite earlier in the day it being confirmed by Downing Street spokesweasels and Harriet Hagperson that there would not only be a vote on Thursday but that it would have a 3-line whip. Now, this is to be welcomed on several levels. It bring closer the publication of the troughing details, which will hopefully see some of the greedier snouts thrown out by their disgusted electors at the first possible opportunity.
It will encourage investigative journalists to lob in many more FOI requests. And it shows up the cowardice of The Great Leader, giving his many enemies more ammunition.
