I'm sure most readers would share my disgust at the vast amounts of expenses claimed by our political class at Westminster. Perhaps most tellingly, we can see that when it comes to Sinn Fein claiming the Queens shilling, they are to the fore as this clearly demonstrates. I'd love to see all those receipts for flights back and forth to Westminster, taxi-fares etc. Also. how quaint that Peter and Iris Robinson both claim individual flat allowances. Do they live in two separate flats or is this an instance of DUP snouts in the trough? All in all, when we glimpse the huge amounts of money that flow towards the political elite, it just makes me all the more contempible about them.
