No, it hasn't. I'd be surprised if he got a harsh sentence. A while ago, the father of my friend was jailed for 5 years for benefit fraud, he stole
around £10,000 over a few years. Of course, what he did was wrong, but he lived in a terrible tiny flat on a council estate, and he and his wife both
earnt minimum wage doing menial jobs, hardly living the high life with his stolen money. Compare that to the £100k+ some of these MPs have stolen,
it's nothing. Not only that, but they are already earning well over £50k+ a year, they don't need expenses. Being an MP should be about
representing the people, not getting rich..you just have to look at some of the reasons these individuals claimed expenses for to see these people
care only about themselves.
