trisoh come on the snp have coined it in the Scottish Parliament there gravy train is particular rich and thick. Thats why they areso fat and content.The old gravy train crap just about worked when Labour were drivingthe train but now the snp are on board its they who take! take take.!I mean just look at Nicola and spouse positively rolling in the public dosh!
Piffle Niko as usual.Lamont unfit for public office and her hubby with all his extra bungs from Labours taxpayer funded companies.
The expenses system in Holyrood was set up by Labour when they set up the parliament. All the rules were devised by the London government, overseen by Tory Blair. If I recall there was a review and the expenses were reduced at least in some areas. The review was under an SNP administration if I'm not mistaken.Of course there have been SNP members who have benefited from expenses, along with the other parties, no one would deny that.But Westminster remains the place to go if you want money for old rope. Scots MPs have nothing much to do as it is all being done for them by the less well paid MSPs of whatever party. They get to sit around drinking and fighting and making fools of themselves.Nicola gets her salary as deputy fm, the same as Nick Clegg gets his bigger salary as deputy pm.
I respected him once, you know!
Although there were many that I did respect, John, he was never one of them. He always made me sick. Sanctimonious git.
