Let justice prevail
Very pleased to hear that some of the MPs are to be subject to a police investigation. Quite right. I am not a vengeful person but as I have said many times, there cannot be one rule for them and another for us. If you are living on benefits and you work on the side - which I am not condoning but which I am aware can often be out of desperation - you can't just say "sorry I'll pay it back". You are charged and often you're jailed. No-one can pretend anything in this expenses scandal was done out of need. It was purely greed. But whatever the motive, we all live by the same laws and allowing some folk to get off scot free would be to make a mockery of the legal systems we live by.
