Some thoughts on MPs expenses.

The current corruption scandal to hit parliament is absolutely unprecedented.

While allegations of sleaze, investigations into sleaze and the occasional MP getting fired or even imprisoned are nothing new, the spotlight is usually confined to the party in power.

Now we have a snapshot of parliament as a whole and we find that once journalists start to do a little digging they find that politicians can be as corrupt in opposition as they are in power.

If the expenses system itself is scrapped, if untested political parties - those that have no serving MPs, MEPs or peers - are given serious consideration at election time, then at least some good will emerge from this revolting mess.

British politics will never be the same again.

Why the tourbillon? This can be a very good query and rolex replica sale never one which I believe I will very easily solution in the following paragraphs. On debuting the replica watches sale actual circa $16, 000 TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon combined with the fake rolex sale Carrera Linked, Mr. Biver appeared to unintentionally start a unsupported claims discussion along with replica watches Thierry Strict – that has upon a minimum of several events voiced away towards Biver's improvement of the "low cost" tourbillon along with other replica watches uk items. Talking with Corinne Gretler from Bloomberg, Strict pretty much stated which like a Switzerland tourbillon, hublot replica item had been as well affordable. Why might Mr. Strict consider which placement?
