Whilst acknowledging that posting was going to be light to non-existent, I could not let this pass without comment.
At a time when the country is broke, that Darling is supposed to be announcing a drive to save a further £10 billion across Whitehall by 2015, we get an announcement like the above.
Then to cap it all, we learn that MPs have awarded themselves a three months 'summer holiday' and then, previously, had the cheek to suggest they should be paid more!
Do I detect yet another 'gathering storm' for our Parliamentary representatives regardless of political hue? If not perhaps we bloggers should start one!
