political priorities

On the BBC lunchtime news today they were talking about the new MPs at Westminster whose attempts to find their way around would be hampered by the fact they don’t know if they are part of the government or the oppostion.

I was particularly taken with the comment that they’d be:

learning how to use their new laptops, learning how to use their new phones and learning how to do their expenses.

Just think how much more confident the public would have been in the political system last year if MPs had been taught how to claim their expenses correctly.
