Booze Guzzling at Parliament at the Expense of the Taxpayer

Booze Guzzling at Parliament at the Expense of the Taxpayer

BOOZE GUZZLING AT PARLIAMENT AT THE EXPENSE OF THE TAXPAYER – Looks like our illustrious MP’s have having a party 24/7 on high end wines and spirits, while the average taxpayer can barely afford a cheap bottle of plonk with our dinner.

In an annual report the Government revealed that MP’s and guests had consumed a staggering £55,000 worth of fine wines, spirits and champagne last year, with some bottles costing over £1,000 a pop.

With the ever increasing disdain the British public have for government officials this news will only go to fuel their belief that while they are made to suffer, with the increasing cost of living and higher tax rates, government officials and their cronies are living it up at our expense.

Mark Simmons, the Foreign Office Minister, did say that alcohol was purchased in bulk and that some wines, spirits and champagnes had increased in value over the years while sitting in the Parliament Wine Cellar.  A number of these bottles, some 1,800, had in fact been sold off at a profit in order to subsidies consumption in an almost ‘self-funding’ scheme.

While that may be true, the average taxpayer will want to know if the consumption of such high end wines, spirits and champagnes is in fact necessary at all?  Should our MPs have access to such a wine cellar?

While I actually appreciate that a report was made available for public scrutiny, as it should, it still doesn’t justify, in my view, why MP’s and guests should be allowed to consume such luxuries at the expense of the taxpayer.  Why not, if you must entertain, do so on what the average taxpayer has to put up with and that’s a bottle of wine that’s under £5.00 from any of the leading supermarkets.

Once again, this type of report simply shows the contempt that the Government MPs have for the general public.

From all that I have read, just over the past few days, it would appear that an MPs life is not a bad one at that.  You start off the day by being chauffeur driven to work, where you are served Early Grey or whatever your preference happens to be, lunch is most often a fancy and expensive affair, followed by dinner and expensive drink, all topped off with a chauffeur driving you back home, with an annual salary that most of us would dearly love … and all at the expense of the average hard working taxpayer.

Oh and did I mention the fact that most MPs fail miserably at their jobs to boot.  I might make a phone call and see if I can get David to give me a job – I could sit around all day eating, drinking and doing nothing for that type of salary and surely that chauffeur driven Jaguar would be a welcome treat of not having to scrum my way on the tube with the commoner every day.
