MPs Expenses (continued)

The interruption of my internet connection has hindered my search for the MPs who have not been taking advantage of the parliamentary expenses scandal. All the details are published on the website 'They Work for You' but it does take time to examine each one of our 645 MPs. So far I have found one who has made the rest look like crooks and alphabetically I am now on the letter 'S'.

It has become quite evident however that the staff allowance is a major scandal which must be addressed. Most MP's claim at least £80,000 staff allowance even thought there are free researchers employed by parliament which they could use. In the last 5 years the staff allowance for the majority of MPs has doubled!
