People are now calling for a general election, new systems and prosecutions in the light of MPs expenses scandals. This is appropriate, but I think it is worth looking at the speck in our eye as we look at the plank in theirs. If you look at the recent scandals of the Commons, why didn’t we provide a chorus demand fundamental changes when MPs led us into war, for example? When the protest was unsuccessful we sort of said a collective ‘sod-it’ and forgot about it. Still no WMDs and Blair now has an inappropriate Foundation to his name. Does it only take misuse of our MONEY before we demand fundamental changes to the system?
