MPs Expenses: The Nonsense has to Stop

As time goes on and more MPs expense claims become public, the more ludicrous they seem to be.

Take Tony McNulty (the minister who's department thinks that me dropping off the jobless stats even though I'm still unemployed is a success):

He claimed second home expenses despite the house he was claiming on being his parents house, despite that house being only 8 miles away from his own house and despite his constituency being in Greater London only 11 miles from Westminster and on a tube line.

IT HAS TO STOP!

MPs that do this sort of thing should pay back the expenses. I don't care whether the rules allow it, THE RULES ARE WRONG!

I call on all the decent MPs to get together and sort it now, before all MPS are tarred as money-grabbing, lying thieves.
