IN March this year I was made redundant from the building trade at the age of 58. I have previously only been unemployed for a total of one week in 42 years. My wife works for three days and I have been self-employed for most of the time and not entitled to any work-related benefits. MPs in general, seem to have shown little respect when claiming expenses for food, travel, mortgages and even taxes. Many of their constituents have to travel greater distances to work five days a week and in full-time employment and cannot claim any expenses as they work for the private industry. If private companies had to pay the levels of expenses at the rate MPs expect to receive them, these companies would find themselves bankrupt and the public sector would no longer exist.
Some MPs have shown scant moral leadership and the levels of their expenses would most probably have increased over the coming years if they hadn't been brought to the attention of the public by independent newspapers.
