A cultural scandal

Blood and Treasure is not impressed by what MPs have been claiming expenses for:

Has it occurred to you that through this whole series of revelations, MPs have claimed for Christmas decorations and bath plugs and their husbands have claimed for pornography, but no-one has put in a claim for a good book, or, for that matter, a bad one. […] What we do have are forty one inch plasma screen TVs. Taken as a whole the expenses scandal probably offers a pretty good cross section of middle class aspirations and all of them seem to be either banal, furtively greedy or just plain crap, with the partial exception of that Lib Dem MP and her mildly kinky leather covered rocking chair.
