Cameron On Expenses

David Cameron has spoken on 'transparency of an expenses system' according to Politics Home.

Some caveats Mr. Cameron:

Mortgage interest up to a certain level - any MP wanting a 'nicer' house in maybe a 'nicer' street/area, then they fund it!

Not certain bills - NO Bills! No Council Tax, no electricity, no gas, no water - telephone calls made on parliamentary business can be claimed as expenses on production of the bill from BT or whoever.

No MP within an hours train journey of Westminster - actual train travelling time, not total travelling time - gets any additional allowance. The present Inner London Allowance to be scrapped!

And the above is on condition that MPs actually 'put in a days work'!
