Hypocritical Bastards - Booze and Supermeals

Whilst Nanny continues to lecture us about our drinking and eating habits, and threatens to place a minimum price on alcohol, may I draw your attention to the following?

The House of Commons catering subsidy has risen to £5.8M, and is equivalent to £8,978 per MP per annum. For every £10 an MP spent on lunch, we contributed £7.60. The year before, we contributed £6.90.

The taxpayer booze subsidy for MPs is 44%.

Where, in the real world, can you buy the following at the price that our political "elite" pay?

A glass of malt whisky, Cointreau liqueur or Grand Marnier costs £2.55. Glasses of 2009 Sauvignon Blanc or 2010 Merlot are £2.35.

Incidentally, MPs can pay for their meals and booze on interest free credit. Try going into your local pub and doing the same!

Hypocritical bastards or what?

  1. Yes Ken, with the socialist elite that run our country, be that New Labour, Blue Labour or the FibDumbms, the rule appears to be; Don't do as we do, do as we say.

    Why should M.Ps receive any catering subsidy? On their salaries and expenses, they can afford to pay the full rate for food and alcohol, like most people have to. And they wonder why they are held in such contempt!

    So these fuckers receive a salary, expenses and a subsidy for food, drink and housing.

    No wonder there are so many tiers of government, and no wonder that they will lie and cheat in order to get and stay elected.

    Perhaps we are all the stupid ones for not wanting to join the party.

  5. I wonder if they pay tax for their perk......Especially as Mr Cameron today stated that he wants to get tough on tax avoidance which, as far as I know, is legal.

  6. Not only do they wine and dine on tick many of them have to be hounded for months on end to pay their bills. Behaviour which, in an Officers Mess, would get them booted out of the Regiment.
