I quote from the Telegraph today a statement by backbench Labour MP David Drew (Stroud) who said:
"Whoever suggested that MPs should be entitled to buy a second property off the state, and then fill it with trappings and more, was at best doing a disservice to Parliament and at worst clinically mad."
This is an MP who, again according to the Telegraph, opted for the Days Inn or the Premier Inn in Westminster, which charges around £99 a night."
Seems to me, there speaks a sensible politician - and a socialist one at that!
