If A Smith can arrange a meeting with our Member of Parliament to discuss the allowances that MPs receive, count me in - because I would like to hear more excuses for the fraud that's been sold to the taxpayer.

We have worked so hard to just survive on a low wage; we have always paid bills, even when money was tight.

We are afraid of the thought of retiring without a pension, because what we put in the country's pot will no longer be full when we retire.

It may have been spent.

All these MPs will laugh, because they have secured their futures on the backs of the taxpayer.

I am also curious to know how much a town counciller can claim, and how much they do claim as individuals.

The rot has not all been uncovered yet

As someone said: "Its a shame Guy Fawkes didn't suceed."

Off wuth their heads, I say.
