Should you ever wonder why people get annoyed with politicians and the way there seems to be one rule for them and other rules for us take a look at the preceedings of Parliament occassionally and you'll see it laid bare.
Yesterday for example, according to Helen Goodman, junior minister at the Leader of the House of Commons Office, MPs are going to be allowed to use their additional cost allowances to pay for the costs of local authority charges for the collection of household rubbish.
In other words, those politicians in central Government who are giving the authority to local Government to charge us for special rubbish collection, special biodegradable bags etc etc, are going to be allowed to use taxpayers money to cover their own charges. Do any of them have any shame? That is what I want to know.
