MSPs expensive expenses overhaul...

The BBC reports that George Reid has called for an overhaul of the expenses system for MSPs. This begs the question, how can a system that's only a few years old require an overhaul already?

Would that be for these reasons -
"Some MSPs have been criticised for making money by buying and selling properties part-funded by the taxpayer.

The allowance scheme has also drawn criticism for allowing members to make claims for council tax and TV licences."

The dishonest people who are elected MSPs are exactly the reason why we do not need more layers of government. One parliament in Westminster is more than enough dishonesty for our nation! They are supposedly representatives of the people, for the people, by the people - and yet they have higher salaries than many of those they claim to represent, yet still feel the need to swindle us, the tax payers, out of more money from fraudulent or immoral dealings with expenses.

I expect the overhaul will tell MSPs they need to try harder, and cost us a hell of a lot of money in the process, achieving absolutely fuck all.

Sack the lot of them, the work-shy bastards!
