David,If it is the case that "MP's are only human" and therefore will take the piss at every available opportunity, it is clear that all issues relating to their pay, expenses and renumeration must be put in the hands of completely independent panels.If the problems of parliament are caused because MP's are only human, maybe we should replace them with Chimpanzee's. At least they wouldn't be on the take and Prime Ministers questions would doubtless be far more entertaining :^)
I actually think the Professor is wrong. Most of us do know the difference between right and wrong and behave accordingly. That is what makes this expenses scandal so shameful on the whole country.
