On Expenses.

Courtesy of Drumlanrig again, "One of the biggest problems in the row over MPs' expenses is the lack of written rules. But one Scottish MP told Drumlanrig he had discovered that one thing for which members cannot claim is funeral wreaths. And another, Norman Baker, was furious to discover that a couple of his requests had been refused. "It's absurd that you can be reimbursed for buying a goldfish bowl, while my claims for a bicycle and a computer – things that help me with my work – were turned down," the MP harrumphed."
