My whole point is that MPs shouldn't be claiming their "mortgage interest and utility bills" from the public purse. It may be within the rules, but guess who sets the rules?

There are examples of MPs doing exactly what Cameron doesn't.

According to the Independent, Labour millionaire Geoffrey Robinson has several properties yet doesn't claim any second home allowance.

On Cameron's own benches, Tory Philip Dunne has a second home in London but refused to claim any second home allowance because it is 'not the right thing'.

And, as you point out Jim, Cameron's constituency is close enough to London to commute anyway. LibDem David Howarth is from further away yet he commutes.

Personally, I'd like to see Cameron be a real conviction politician, preferably a conviction from the the War Crimes Tribunal for complicity in the Iraq war.
