Even Now the Moaning Continues

The Guardian has a comprehensive round-up of MPs on all sides and of all ranks who are anonymously bitching about IPSA – the new expenses body, who have hilariously had to state that they will not tolerate abusive behaviour from Members. “We are being treated like benefit claimants. Why don’t they just put up a metal grille?”

Another said “What happens on a January night in London? I suppose I will have to take the tube, then a bus and then a long walk home. That is not safe.” Just like everyone else has to. Don’t these people realise that if the streets are unsafe then it is their fault?

It has also been announced today that the taxpayer subsidy on food on the Parliamentary Estate is to end, with prices being hiked up to just-across-the-street level immediately. While their expenses have now been brought closer into line with the real world, still they moan about only being allowed to claim a taxi after 11pm. Have they ever considered actually paying for one themselves?

Quote of the Day

Dominic Raab wrote in his letter of resignation…

“This is, at its heart, a matter of public trust,” he told the PM, concluding: “I cannot reconcile the terms of the proposed deal with the promises we made to the country in our manifesto at the last election… I believe that the regulatory regime proposed for Northern Ireland presents a very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom. I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
