MP's Expenses

Yet another little triumph for yours truly. The expenses mess in the Commons has started taking one or two lessons from how to run a succesful blagging operation from the old hands in the Lords.

Keeping them secret gives MPs a chance to avoid all the awkward questions over the election. If booted out, they can form part of the 2010 intake into the Lords. As fellow blaggers they will be welcome.

However, if it had come out early, there would be a huge fuss, the electorate would kick them out, and its then much more difficult to get them on the gravy train in the other place.

PS. If you think you're going to lose your seat, get in touch. I'm sure for a small expense (tax exempt), we can get you onto another form of income.
