    “What a scandalous waste of taxpayers money”

    I don't begrudge my tax money for that purpose.

    Subsidising MP's meals in parliament is an abuse of taxpayers money, and paying them massive pensions even when they are elected out of parliament, is a waste of taxpayer's money

    I'm pleased to see the Falkland Island's population has increased by about 32,000 in a week.
