The British public sometimes give the impression of being less than bright. And hypocritical.
Its well known that tax avoidance is rife. As is taking a sickie.
Yet when it comes to MP's we have all the current hysteria. Not that I agree with false claims, but the only sensible solution - a higher salary to enable two homes to be maintained - wouldn;t win public support either.
I find it sad and am not in the least surprised that so much interest is created in something so ultimately unimportant, leaving key issues by the wayside.
As for the 'holier than thou' stance of London Tory (sorry, she's supposedly Labour)MP Kate Hoey, its a bit easier when you are single and have a central London seat
