There's a big hoo-haa in England at the moment about MPs expenses. Apparently, one of them had even been claiming expenses for mortgages on a second home for three years, when the bloody house was already been paid for. Then there are the swimming pools, cleaners and furniture for their second dwellings that they've been putting in their crooked claims for as well. How dare they, I say to my mild-mannered self. How dare they tax the poor old British person up to the eyeballs while they are living the high life on ordinary Joe and Josephine Soap's money. High taxes were one of the main reasons that we (my husband and I) left the country. (The weather ain't so good also). I hope these greedy people now stew in their embarrassment at being found out.
