Useless and Unnecessary Claptrap

If you want a perfect example of the way in which this Government legislates in a vacuum, with an eye solely to tomorrow's headlines, it is hard to beat the latest proposal to make expenses cheating by MPs a distinct criminal offence.

Don't they know it's illegal already? That it has been for many many years? That the proposed new law is a waste of paper and of Parliament's time?

I have previously written of offences charged under Victorian laws, bypassing the mass of recent legislation.

Parliament and Government have many more important things to occupy them. This is pathetic.


Marcel Berlins feels the same way.
