So we will get to see details of MPs expense claims, but the information will be censored! There will still be enough to cause major embarrassment, hopefully a sprinkling of resignations, and maybe even a few criminal prosecutions. Somehow I think the ‘silly season’ will be suspended this year. I would not be so naïve as to assume that the days of heads in troughs are over, but at least the blatant and excessive abuses of opportunity should be.

I am somewhat bemused that some MPs are allegedly on suicide watch, over concerns as to what might happen when they get found out. Well jump off the top of St Stephen’s tower – I don’t care.

I would though very much like to find out which of these MPs are having extramarital affairs with each other. That’s the salacious streak in me.


Each time another case of excessive and unjustified expense claiming comes to light, it seems to be even more excessive that the one before. So the case of Baroness Uddin is, to me, the most blatant and the most indefensible.

Aside from the expense claims, the family have been living in affordable housing that was built for people that could not afford to pay the market rate. Moreover she bought an apartment for dubious reasons, and kept it empty ever since. Given the grave shortage of housing in this country, such an abuse is a disgrace.
