Expenses row and austerity

A lot could be said about the row over MPs’ expenses in Britain but I want to focus on one aspect of it. The discussion will no doubt strenghten the call for greater austerity. A key theme of the discussion is that everyone, including MPs, should be prepared to make sacrifices in these difficult times.

In my view MPs’ expenses should be a non-issue. Instead we should be demanding more resources for everyone.
