There's no pomposity in what I said - you clearly do not understand the situation. If you "can understand what's going on" why did you say earlier that MPs 'fiddled like pigs at the trough', and have now changed your story to 'bending the rules to get bucket loads of extra cash'? Bending a rule isn't fiddling, but you don't seem to understand that, at any rate.
Nobody - certainly not me - has ever said that MPs weren't exploiting the expenses system; the fact that some of them have done so is obvious. That can be sorted out quite quickly, but if we are to avoid such situations arising in the future we need to look very carefully at the way our legislators are rewarded. I'll repeat what I said earlier, and what I have said on many occasions, which is that if we want high quality MPs we must pay them appropriately, otherwise we'll get what we've got now, which is a house with a large number of mediocre self servers. There are some first-rate MPs, but they are sadly outnumbered by the other sort.
We have only ourselves to blame, but no doubt you'll fail to agree, and blame it all on what you call the 'ruling class'.
