Senior Tories Expenses - Stephen Fry

More Tories in the spotlight. Their claims are certainly a better class of expense, swimming pools, a moat, country estates, garden renovations, third and fourth homes. I've nothing against people being or getting rich. Yet I do have a problem subsidising their life style choices, when they have more than enough money to pay for manure themselves. What really disappoints me though, is to see David Davies among the line up.

Amid this saga however, Stephen Fry raises a good point about perspective. Though I don't agree with all he says, this stood out:
let's not confuse it with what politicians get really wrong, things like wars, things were people die.
Can you imagine, the kind of Health Service we would have if they showed the motivation for reform they have over expenses?
