MP’s Expenses

Asked if the Prime Minister thought that MP’s were good value for money the PMS said as the issue was a matter for the House authorities and as the Prime Minister was himself an MP it was not wise for her to comment.

Briefing took place at 7:00 | Search for related news


  1. Good value for money ???????
    Just when you think our ‘honourable’ representatives can’t push it any further up, they go for another good length. Not only that, how can they justify making it impossible to know in the future ???
    Tony, thanks so much for turning this country into a totalitarian police state. From such high hopes you have turned into such a vain, autocratic, arrogant, selfish, grabbing %&/+*(\xE7. Your god will look forward to judging you in due course.

  2. Following David Maclean’s attempt to suppress details of M.P’s expenses with his private members bill i tried to log on to find out what his expenses have been with no success, i assume that many others had the same idea with the result that the connection is overloaded at this time. Strange tangent coming from these people as "journalists expenses should be published", point is journalists are not funded by the taxpayer, nor do they get to vote themselves what salary or pension rights etc. they get. Still its nice to know that on the really important issues (my salary, my pension, my expenses, my veil of secrecy) Members of Parliament on both sides of the House can band together in a spirit of brotherhood to try force through legislation "on the nod". The surname Maclean seems somewhat unfortunate in these circumstances, i for one do not go for this brand of toothpaste.
