Let's control the politicians
IT'S about time real meaningful legislation is brought about to control some of our politicians. Its scandal after scandal, our MPs and members of the House of Lords are our representatives at the top of society, elected in good faith by their constituents. They must remember they are public sector employees, paid by the tax-payer, and should be treated the same as they are treating public sector employees, with wage freezes, redundancies, and cutbacks. It seems politicians and the House of Lords are exempt from cutbacks.
MPs are allowed free first class travel for themselves and their wife/husband, a final salary pension scheme, the right to claim £100,000 expenses, a 57.7p per mile mileage allowance for cars, and even a 20p allowance per mile for riding a bike, cheap subsidised food and drink in the House of Commons, up to 50 per cent of their salaries as a tax-free grant if they lose their seats, and £10,000 pay-off if they lose their seat at election time.
The costs of their perks has cost the tax-payer over five million pounds extra since this coalition Government has taken over.
Then of course we have the House of Lords, where sign in and you pocket £300 per day.

It needs to be cleaned up, we're not in this together, it's one rule for politicians and one for us lot pick up the tab.
On top of all this Iain Duncan Smith, in charge of welfare cuts, has two Lords, who are unelected, as part of his department. It beggars belief.
