How about having a second home allowance that is properly enforced and fully justified, eh?
No, having to prove your expenses is something only the proles have to do - you know, those mugs who pay tax to fund the very life this current crop of troughing MPs enjoy.
So the idea of £100k is to put it in line with Head Teachers and Doctors. Well, I would be more open to that discussion IF and only IF the MPs actually were responsible - i.e. that we return sovereignty to the UK so all laws are passed in the house, not rubber stamped, remove Statutory Instruments and get MPs to focus on lawmaking and not Social Work, which is what Councillors should be doing. If the Central Government did less, then there would be far less need for such "channels". Oh, and merge the role of MSP/MA with MP while we are at it.
