Another Expenses Scandal

MP’s are claiming fuel allowances and, it’s deplorable. They have free housing, free food, alcohol, gym membership, the catalogue of things are limitless.

What about the poor, the sick, the disabled, old and, people of no fixed address?


80,000 children will be homeless at Christmas and the rest of the year.   They don’t have the grandeur of one home, let alone two and, as for MP’s claiming for energy when the rest of the nation has 10% increases is completely nauseating, as we all freeze while they snigger all the way to the bank.


The disabled are at death’s door in their thousands following being established suitable for work. They’re being denied benefits and; there will be additional loss of life to come in the following winter months.

The old are being intimidated with the misplacement of their Winter Fuel Payment should the Conservatives be in control in 2015. They can hardly cope on a state pension as it is.


The communal poor must pick between heating or eating and, those unfortunate enough to be sanctioned, they can’t do either.

The expenditure disgrace has done nothing to put an end to MP’s continuing to sponge and thieve from the taxpayer.   Whether working or not we’re all paying our dues on each thing we buy, as well as PAYE and NI contributions.

The MP’s take, take, take with no feeling for the people they’re rumoured to serve.   They oppress and break the law, they exaggerate and deceive the people and, get away with it.

Iain Duncan Smith tells lies in parliament and, gets away with it every time.   Grant Shapps has different pseudonyms and dodgy business methods and, the police don’t bring legal proceeding against him.


The energy disaster is the last straw.  This country isn’t just and fair and, MP’s will carry on taking freedoms away from us, along with our good natures for as long as they see fit.

One day the tables will be compelled to turn and, we must purge ourselves of self serving fools, rather than serving them.

In 2009 there was a major expenses scandal, which exposed members of the United Kingdom Parliament.  There was public outrage because of the actual and so-called abuse of the authorised allowances and expenses claimed by Members of Parliament.

Yet we’re now in 2013 and, it’s still going on under our very own eyes and, people are permitting this to happen, they’re all walking about with blinkers on their eyes, like they’re in some sort of stasis.

The political expenses scandal in 2009 ended in a huge number of people standing down, sackings, de-selections and retirement announcements, together with official expressions of regret and, the reimbursement of expenses.

Various members or previous members of the House of Commons and members of the House of Lords, were taken to court and sentenced to periods of imprisonment.

Yet we all appear to consider it adequate that members of parliament are now extracting money from the poor to give to the wealthy and, funding their exorbitant way of life from the honest taxpayer and, not only that, they are getting away with it.

In the United Kingdom MPs can claim expenses, comprising the cost of accommodation, that are entirely, exclusively and, as a result incurred for the functioning of a Member’s governmental obligations.

In February 2008 a Freedom of Information Act request for the liberation of particulars of MPs’ expenses claims was permitted by an Information Tribunal.


In May 2008, the High Court in England and Wales decreed approval of liberating the particulars of MPs’ expenses claims and, in April 2009 House of Commons officials made known that publication of expenses, with particular details considered overly delicate, to be removed, would be made in July 2009.

Nevertheless prior to this taking place, a full uncut transcript of the expenses records and documentation was disclosed to the Daily Telegraph, which started issuing particulars in day-to-day instalments from 8 May 2009.

If this could occur then, it can take place now and, those MPs who are squandering the taxpayers money haphazardly are like a lethal disease spreading, but looking as if they are giving us charity and, doing us a good turn.

It’s not a ‘gentleman’s club’ for MPs and, there should be a strict cutting-edge control on how to prevent misuse of pay and expense process and, there should be agreed radical plans on how to implement this.

We can’t turn a blind eye to this misuse of trust inside the government and, it should be abolished at once, directives should not be damaged, particularly by a government that we’re supposed to put one’s trust in the most, when they’re supervising our nation.

Westminster can’t operate like some gentlemen’s club where the subscribers of that club make up the directives and run it jointly themselves and, if MPs carry on setting their own codes and rules, our country will consistently dispute its transparency and, quality that they rightly demand.

The conduct of some MPs is completely unsatisfactory and, particular MPs should be forced to stand down and, there should be an immediate general election.

Members of Parliament appear to think it is their entitlement to claim for furniture, gardening, cleaning and stamp duty on house purchases, as well as acquiring second homes and, then some, all of this, will not reinstate the people’s confidence in our political system.

Our political system needs to be changed and, looked into more seriously.  There needs to be reorganisation, so that the citizens of the United Kingdom can have more confidence and pride in their elected Members of Parliament and, these suggested alterations should be relevant to the House of Lords, as well as the House of Commons.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
