Honest politicians?

We'll all remember 2009 as the year Westminster was brought to task (yeah right) for the obscene and insane expenses and allowances given to MP's who instead of serving us, are self serving.  Anyhow, a story to warm the cockles of your heart:

Almost brings some faith back into it doesn't it?

Re: Honest politicians?

A cynic might believe that they voted to keep allowances unchanged because to do otherwise might have led to them not being re-elected and then they would have no allowances at all.

Re: Honest politicians?

Certainly a contradiction of terms.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Honest politicians?

Ok, maybe honest is the wrong word to use when referencing any politician since the word politician was invented.  Politicians who understand that just because they can do something, doesn't mean they should?
