Expenses Furore

I wish I had been in the UK for the start of the expenses scandal. Luckily, we head to London next week, where I’m sure people will still be outraged by the latest revelations. My favorite is the MP who submitted expense claims for his duck house.

As a British taxpayer, I do feel irate that his ducks lived in greater comfort than I did (a tranquil cottage with a moat?! Unfair! I had to make do with a murphy bed, and a flat next to train tracks!).

So I hope the public anger helps to convince the MPs to give the money back. I am looking forward to the water cooler chat next week.
