They still don't get it.
Today, the controversial decision by the Daily Telegraph to publish a copy of the claims made by MPs on the taxpayers for allowances and expenses became totally justified. The official publication of MP's expenses and allowances has shown that there has been zilch commitment to openness and transparency. Today, the poor regard in which our MPs are held, and the disrespect which the current Parliament is held was made a whole lot worse. People who care about our democracy, weep in despair. Please, please, bring forward a general election to bring some blessed relief to the pain and devastation that is being inflicted on our democracy.
