Abolish/ limit MPs expenses

MPs expenses are abhorrent and disgustingly over the top. They are literally a cash cow for greedily grabbing more money. Previous claims have included dog food, a duck island, a moat and mortgages/ rent. This has to stop. If these fripperies are allowed as expenses what exactly are their wages for?

Proposal- Expenses, as with other businesses, should be limited to:

1. 3 meal allowances per day when away from their constituency, up to a maximum of £15 each, no alcohol permitted. If they want to drink alcohol they pay for it out of their own pocket and it's non reclaimable;

2. Cheapest standard bus/ rail travel from constituency to London. If they wish to travel First Class then anything over and above the price of the cheapest standard ticket is paid for out of their own pocket and it's non reclaimable. 

And 3. Cheapest hotel accommodation for overnight stays in London, maximum £75 per night. No rent, no mortgage.

That's it. Nothing else. 

Being an MP should be a calling in life, not a cash cow for feathering your own nest. Unsurprisingly, Parliament themselves rejected this petition. Please sign and share so we can let these people know that we, their employers, have had enough of this greed. It has to stop.
