Morally Barron

The good news is IPSA says MPs should no longer be able to claim for:

  • Hospitality tea and biscuits
  • Hotels before 0100
  • Taxis home before 2300
  • Contents insurance for a second home
  • Installing a TV in a second home

The bad news is they think that should come with a bribe of a £7,000 pay rise.

Quote of the Day
