    Seeing as we pay these MPs and many have fiddled their expenses, I'm sure an investigation into the amount of work they do between now and 12/10/09 would be justified and revealing.

    Teachers get long holidays and so do MPs does it matter?
    Neither does really with the amount of work they have to do. Constituency work + running the country vs Courses, marking, lesson/course plans, learning new syllabuses etc.

    I was wrong, they awarded themselves £9k receipt-less expenses just before close of play, despite all they said to us a few weeks ago.
