If you really want to be appalled, read the House of Commons debate today, unbelievably called by the Conservatives as an Opposition Day debate, on MPs' expenses. It is so very depressing. We do not want to see debate after debate on this subject. We had one on 3 July and certainly did not need another one today. We want our elected representatives to debate some of the important issues facing our nation and coming up with solutions. And yet today, Parliament is debating the merits or otherwise of the John bloody Lewis list. I ask you.
On a brighter note, Tory MPs have today taken a lead and released details of their expense claims. Should you wish to know what any Conservative MP has claimed, click HERE. I am sure the other parties will be following suit in due course.
