|Den of thieves|
They want a 15% pay rise;
They claim for food and drink;
The expect subsidized bars and restaurants;
They claim for travel expenses and spin the system so that they can travel first class, like their backsides were too special for second class travel that most of us use;
They claim for second homes;
They claim for decorating;
They claim for gardening;
They claim for furniture;
They claim for office stationery;
They claim for council tax;
They claim for tv subscriptions and tv licences;
They claim for household bills, including domestic servants;
They will claim for anything they can
And then they call the unemployed, the old and the sick benefit scroungers.
|David Freud, failed merchant banker rewarded with a blue blood transfusion|
And their neighbours are just as bad. They manage to avoid paying taxes on their salary by calling expenses, which are paid regardless of any expense involved. And from their number, without ever being elected are chosen ministers of the crown like this piece of garbage, a failed merchant banker who lies through his teeth about benefit fraud in the working classes, insults the very poor by insisting that they beg for food at food banks because he assumes that, like his "noble" colleagues, they will do anything for free food... but doesn't mention that he sits in a house full of people who take non stop from the state, and in some cases, from anyone else who will offer them any money to subvert the will of parliament.
These people really do make me sick, and although I accept that there are probably some who aren't on the make, I will be damned glad to get rid of all of them.
Note: I am aware that the Edinburgh parliament is not perfect and that there are benefits there too, and I'm sure people taking every advantage of them. But the conditions were set up by Westminster members, who have or had a sense of entitlement.
I'd be happy to see the subsidies there go too in an independent state.
