Last year Guido spent many months hamming-up the scandal around the subsidies from the taxpayer for food and drink in Parliament, and the special prices only available to MPs. Back in August 2012 the subsidy was slashed by a huge £600,000, leaving the poor piggies only receiving £5.2 million from our pockets to help them with their bar bills.
It’s good to see that people are still sizzling about this issue, the breakfast menu above has been doing the rounds today. Bacon and egg on toast for £1.05? It would be a bargain wherever you found it, but in the exclusive, rent-free, palatial riverside dining facilities of the Houses of Parliament? Un-egg-cceptable.
