What I find so depressing about the Telegraph revelations is in the words of the Times, I think, how tawdry and squalid the sight of a number of politicians hellbent on milking the system and doing it so badly is. In almost any other country we would be talking millions, not 98 pence for a bath plug. Even an ex-colonial thug like Mugabe can teach them a thing or two about corruption.
We never win the World Cup; we lose regularly at cricket, and now our politicians can’t even milk their expenses properly. The UK is truly sinking now.
