MPs to revert to 'playing the violin' again?

Christopher Hope, Daily Telegraph, writes about the latest report from the Committee on Members Expenses.

The chairman of the committee has the downright effrontery to say that the present system is 'damaging democracy' and that ipsa should be stripped of their powers.

And that, Mr. Afriyie, is exactly how we, the people, view MPs!

Now, if our democracy was based on 'Referism' and 'Direct Democracy', the problems about which Adam Afriyie (a multi-millionaire to boot) complains would not have arisen in the first place.

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

In the bonfire of quangos we were promised, IPSA should be the last one to go. I think most of us enjoy MPs suffering a bit of the mindless bureaucracy that the rest of us experience nearly every time we interact with government.

1) Who invited this guy into the UK
2) Is his presence required by the people
3) The direct democracy answer should be applied

2. Apparently, he was voted for
3. Most definitely!
