I WAS horrified to see that MPs who were found to have manipulated the Parliamentary expenses system are being allowed to pay back the ‘stolen’ money over a period and without any interest being charged. 
Compare this with the treatment of students who are called upon to repay their university fees at the inflation rate plus three per cent. How is it that MPs always manage to avoid the full consequences of their misdeeds?
