The whole thing reeks of hypocracy. I don't understand why we are still using a relic of a building that will cost billions to upgrade. Also don't understand the second home allowance. Why can't the Government build or buy a building suitable to provide accommodation for MPs? Alternatively, why not move the Government to somewhere more central?
I've worked in the public sector and we never got subsidised meals or a travel paid for us (unless it was to an agreed conference and even then it was the cheapest way rather than the most efficient). Given how many cutbacks there have been in the public sector it surely needs asked why the Government, as our employees, think they deserve better.
Why am I subsidising the lunch of a millionaire but not of a vulnerable young person in England?
