MPs Moan as IPSA Boss Wants Second Term

Sir Ian Kennedy, Chairman of their expenses watchdog IPSA, will be seeking another term as chief defender against the piggy-fiddlers, Despite being widely disliked by both MPs and officials, Sir Ian has told friends he has ‘thrown his hat in again’ despite some confusion about whether he’s even allowed to serve a second term in the £100,000 job.

Well at least MPs of all colours will have something to grumble about for the summer.

    IPSA is a dog’s breakfast. Kennedy is incompetent, the terms of reference are a mess, and MPs still manage to get themselves in all kinds of trouble.

    I suggest a fine system. Each MP claims expenses. They are made public.

    A jury is selected and they are judged once a year.

    Anyone that is found guilty is fined.

    It would be like the lottery. People would want to be part of it. Just a small chance you can have power over the MPs. A small price to pay for increased voter registration.

      Or: the one with the lowest expenses claim gets a £500,000 cash prize, which he/she will be under extreme pressure to donate to charidee.

          Now that we all have broadband what is so wrong with all expense claims being placed on the internet for us all to see on a daily basis ?

        Shouldn’t that be ‘for life’? Probably need to extend the door size on a continuing basis to nail all the b******. Or would they learn after the first 50 or so ended up there?

    Give all MPs another 1000 pounds per annum and do away with al expense claims. Any extra office equipment and supplies can be provided by central resources. Then the Honourable (?) members can practise budgetry controls like the rest of us.
