Catching up on what’s farciacally described as “news” these days, I noticed in a BBC Report this little ‘gem’ (yes, dear reader, that’s sarcasm):
A spokeswoman for Ms Smith said: “The home secretary has always abided fully with Parliament’s clear rules on expenses and has long-standing written approval from the Parliamentary Fees Office for any agreed expenses.
Now, correct me if I’m wrong but the article relates to Jacqui Smith as a CONSTITUENCY MP, not a frikking Cabinet Minister. I find it quite wrong for the spokeswoman to refer to her office, when it’s a matter of legislature, not executive.
Please, please, please, can people get SEPARATION OF POWERS, into their heads. It’s really not that difficult to understand.
