THE vote in Parliament which will still see MPs of all political colours free-loading on the back of the long-suffering taxpayer yet again confirms what many have known for a long time.

They believe they are unique and they believe they can collect pound upon pound for all sorts of expenses.

These are the rules of a cosy club - a club founded by us. This is a turning point in our history. We now have only one way to ensure they listen to us - and that is to ignore their plaintiff call for support at the ballot box as they continue to ignore us!
