9 more months to spend other people's money


After a public outcry and reactionary pressure from Brown, The Committee on Standards in Public Life has now decided to report on MPs perks by the end of the year.  The committee is headed by by Sir Christopher Kelly, a career civil servant with no commercial expertise.

We have another 9 months to wait for the committee to report and nothing will happen until after the next election.  The private sector would resolve this shambles within days if not a few weeks.  In the public sector it other people’s money, so who cares?  The British public do.

In the meantime there will more embarrassing revelations leading to public ridicule.  This controversy needs resolving now and there is no reason why this shouldn't happen.
