"I would not condemn politicians, wealthy or otherwise, for claiming the very basic expenses"

Well blue sky thinking might lead us to decide they should be means tested before they are given expenses - or even a salary.
What is an horrendously wealthy individual doing messing around as a wage earner? Could it be that being an MP or Minister conveys far greater advantage - contacts, info, contracts, nods, winks, consultancy fees, directorships, prestige and power etc etc ? Maybe we're complete mugs to be giving them salaries for what they'd kill their grannies to do for free?
