So another MP with their hands in the till. MP Nadine Dorries said her breaches of the rules had been "inadvertent".
Hopefully she will be sacked, why should we pay her a salary for her 'inadvertant' lies. It was bad enough that she went to the jungle whilst we paid her to be in the UK and available to her constituents. I cannot bear the fact that so many MP's are laissez-faire about our tax money.

All MPs should have one home in their constituency that is paid for out of their salary. MP's who live outside commutable distance (say 70 miles from Westminster) should have the extra travel expenses paid. Any MP within commutable distance pays their own travel expenses. They can also pay their own lunches/dinners 5 days a week. They should have an MPs hostel where the poor dears can book a room if they need to stay over after a late debate - rare these days. Or they can catch the last train home like the rest of us. Oh and their pay rises should be no more than the rate of inflation.
Why should Norman Baker be able to claim his first class train ticket and not a nurse, teacher, fireman or police officer?

Why link their pay to inflation?
It should be linked to median average wages. That way they only get a pay rise when the average Joe gets one.

Why should MPs' all get a full pension? It is a temporary position, depending on the electorate. Yet an MP who is elected for one term only eventually gets the same (generous and index linked) pension as one who has been in the job for forty years.

It's Broken Britain. Not completely broke though, we managed to send off £10m to The Phiilpines (god knows they need it) but it would be interesting to see who sent us what, if we were hit in the same way. They can't even vote for us in the Eurovision Song Contest ! ! China haven't donated !

I think it is broken Britain.I believe we've been bankrupt since 1931.The 10 million will have been borrowed from financiers and we will pay the interest out of our taxes.It's great how the people with money never give anything,just lend it at interest and the people with very little are generous with their donations,isn't it?And we vote for this system!

Why not send them £10 million worth of goods made in Britain?
Maybe blankets, tents, water canisters, first aid kits, medicines etc.
That way we all win and there would be a reduced chance of the money being wasted.
