Politicians behaving badly

If there wasn’t a recession on this latest exposé would probably not have hit the headlines. Since time immemorial many politicians have lead shady private lives and been involved in sleaze and corruption. I could not care less about the content of Ms. Smith’s videos but I do object to the ridiculous amounts being quoted for MPs expenses, and the waste of taxpayers money. There are too many political snouts in the trough, and it is about time that a sensible compromise was agreed. It is difficult to take politicians seriously when they appear to be behaving like greedy parasites. I doubt that the ‘videos’ were on subjects required to fulfil her duties as Home Secretary. The money frittered away on Ms. Smith’s ‘entertainment bill’ would have been better spent on the NHS!
