MPs should have a basic pay with minimum expenses i.e: only second rail fares (any first or special travel is paid for by themselves, as ordinary folk do)  All food and decorating expenses are paid by the MP as ours are.  Only official duties may be claimed for and all expenses must be scrutinised.

Why is this idea important?

Because the lack of trust in politicians is so low and their attitude to having to pay for every day expenses come across a pure greed.
