Public Money & Commons Self-Regulation

Paul Waugh picks up on an extremely important point, that the Standards & Privileges Committee have promptly gone against one of Sir Christopher Kelly's recommendations - something I was under the impression that MPs accepted unconditionally. But hey, we are talking 'politicians' here...............

If, as the S&P Committee maintain it costs public money, then how about it is spent by letting the public decide? That is exactly the point for a 're-call' system and local referenda being used. But hey, this would mean the introduction of local democracy - something MPs profess to know about but cannot see the point of introducing.  

Democracy for the people - God forbid!*

* Which is probably the reason why not one of the Con/Lab/LibDem cabal want a referendum!
