MPs Take It Easy

I can see why some people are upset about this but to be honest I they're looking at it all wrong.

MPs will take an 82-day summer holiday this year - seven days more than members enjoyed last year.

The 12-week break is 12 days longer than their summer recess of just five years ago.

The news has provoked claims that the Government is out of touch and that politicians are more concerned with feathering their own nests than solving Britain's problems.

In fact, I'm all for extending British politicians' holidays. The longer they are out of Parliament the less chance they have to come up with their next crackpot scheme and slowly suffocate what little freedom the UK still enjoys. Frankly, it's politicians thinking that they are solving the nation's problems that's gotten us into this mess.
