Of MPs and their expenses…

If you happen to be a MP in UK, this might not be the best time for you… or how a brit will put it.. you are in trouble, mate! The Prime Minister is  not spared, then you can imagine, what will happen to the rest.

And it is the gardening and the cleaning expenses thats drawing Sir Thomas’ attention the most. Besides, Gordon Brown, it’s Ken Clarke, the shadow business secretary, who is in love with his garden. He is been asked to cough up £4133. Economy may not be blooming, but democracy is certainly at its best.

Such a contrast to what happened in the biggest democracy in the world last month. Indian MPs went on an austerity drive, following the flak recieved by two MPs for living in a 5-star hotel for 3 months.  To silence the blazing media and the opposition, many Congress leaders including Sonia Gandhi, flew economy class!

Something that maybe British MPs can learn from. But one thing Indian MPs must learn from their English counterparts, is the queen’s language. See this and you would know what i mean…
