I love these posts...but hasn't anyone got anything positive to say about at least 1 politician? There are some! OK, putting the Tories to one side...hasn't anyone got something good to say about an MP who hasn't got a 2nd home, hasn't been claiming excessive expenses etc..
Would be quite refreshing to hear something nice for a change..


As I've mentioned before, back in the day, These guys

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_Fields
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Nellist

Refused to take their full parliamentary salary. Fields was sponsored by the fire brigade union and tok home the wage of a fireman. Nellist took the wage of a skilled factory worker. The rest they gave back to the Labour movement.

I see this as something worthy of admiration. Seems a tad more principled than the current shower of careerists, don't you think?
