Stuff the people and planet but gimme the cash

More disgraceful behaviour from our MP. On Thursday she voted against modest expenses reforms to improve transparency.

This is from

"Last night, in their most shameful vote since 42-days, Westminster MPs voted against reforms to their expenses system.

"The recommendations were not radical. MPs would lose the John Lewis list, whereby they buy furniture and improvements to their second home with public money. They would have to provide receipts for purchases charged on expenses. External auditors would check their behaviour out every four years or so. "

So the message from your Tory MP this summer is: screw the planet, lock up people without charge and let MPs continue to rake it in on expenses.

Hmmm... I wonder why people feel disillusioned with politics?
