Average expense claim for a UK politician: 130,000.

One of them spent 31,000 on POSTAGE.

All this while they declare a massive shortage in pension funds that'll keep UK pensioners in poverty for years to come.

When are these pigs going to get their snouts out of the trough of public funds?

When the pigs fly! At least yours are less swinish than ours in Canada. A few years as a trained seal in parliament gets you a six figure lifetime pension. Meanwhile the waiting list for important medical procedures grows. Reminds me of the Billy Bragg song "Ideologies Clashing" Where "the patient minions expect a little more back for their taxes" and all they get is "old men grinding axes"

I don't know about less swinish, a lot of british MPs are claiming expenses to pay a mortgage on a second home. I don't mean they're claiming for something else and using the money for a mortgage, they are actually getting the british taxpayer to buy them a house. TOOT TOOT, the gravy train has arrived!
