Imagine this in a public company

The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority has replaced the Commons Fees Office, and most of its £6.5m budget is expected to go on recruiting about 80 staff. Its chairman Sir Ian Kennedy will be paid a salary of £100,000.
This is to monitor only 646 employees - about one to eight ratio  Crazy

Now there is a chance! Let THEM pack another 100 TU Lords in to form the scrutiny committee, at least they would know all about the dodges to be spotted!

Hopefully this nonsense will be dealt with after the election in a more positive way.
