Second home is where the heart is

I’m not sure what to make of the MPs’ expenses scandal. “Politicians on the take” is not exactly newsworthy, but the sheer scale of things has left me taken aback. Urgent reform is needed but probably won’t happen.

The European elections are coming up; I’m worried that disillusioned voters will either abstain or transfer their vote to one of the looney fringe parties. Charlie Brooker has an excellent article on that.

Hopefully the end result will be a wake-up call to the major parties alerting them to the real and justified anger from the public.
