This is not 'troughing' - this is 'taking the p**s!

"Take from a man his reputation for probity, and the more shrewd and clever he is, the more hated and mistrusted he becomes."
Marcus Tullius Cicero

And so the troughing of public funds continues unabated - according to this story in the MailOnline, a story about wealthy MPs taking advantage of £4,000 interest free loans whilst waiting for payment of their expenses. In the article mention is made of Nicholas Soames and Ed Miliband, both of whom it is reported have made use of the interest-free loan facility.

So what did Ed Miliband do with his £20,000 bonus, one received just over 18 months ago? What has Nicholas Soames done with all the money received and notated under his 'declaration of interest'?

Do not our 650 continually inform us how clever they are and that only they are fit and proper people to 'guide' our nation? Then they wonder why they are so hated.................

Just saying..........
