MP's Expenses

I've been speaking to alot of my friends today about the expenses story. I have come to the following conclusion.

The "legal" expenses would not be begrudged by ordinary people if they felt that the government was actually representing them. It seems they are more pissed off with the fact that the taxpayer is funding a government and shadow cabinet that are not listening to them. With Labour in power, the taxpayer is funding it's own totalitarian state and with the Conservatives, they feel their money is being wasted on a party that will actually be no different to the Labour Party.

All the people I have spoken to want less to do with the EU. Infact, many of them want OUT altogether basically because they feel we get nothing in return except a ridiculous human rights policy.

Many of them feel that considering 80% of our policies, laws and legislation are made in Brussels that we shouldn't even have so many civil servants.

All of them are fed up with their money being squandered on making their lives a misery. ID Cards, NHS Database and paying for Immigrants, illegal wars etc. They are fed up with the amount of crime and sick to death of being told what they can and can't do, in particular the no smoking ban (the list is endless, but you get the picture).

There you have it..

  2. I will in the General Election but only because I want Labour out. I am still not too pleased with some of Camerons vague answers, especially on the EU.
