Cutting The Cost Of Parliament

ePolitix is reporting that there are plans to cut the cost of Parliament by £20million, presumably per annum.

Why stop at £20million? Lets face it, we could save £131million per anum in view of the fact that our real government is located in Brussels and not Westminster!

If only our present-day Guy Fawkes would stop blogging and actually do something! Not asking too much, is it?

Since our politicians have little power, there's little point in Fawkes blowing them up. In any case their replacements would probably find some way of claiming the cost of the gunpowder, or that the hole in the ground was their main residence. Vermin.

OR: To paraphrase SuperMac - symbolism, dear boy, symbolism.

Afterwards, pour encourager les autres (so to speak), having strung a few up, returned our democracy in which it is decided by the people, I don't believe the new 'representatives' would prove troublesome!
