Since it broke the expenses scandal has forever changed how people look and view MP's. Some have tried to make amends by either paying back or not doing it any more, or by finding other ways to look as honest and respectful as possible.
So it probably doesn't help when they call up the people who deal with expenses and deliver a tirade of abuse just because the rules and regulations have gotten tighter now the public know about them being sneaky and stealing from the tax payer.
In this news article from "The Express"
It is explained how staff were called "monkeys" and were swore at and shouted at.
"He was said to have reduced one intern to tears though he later returned with a box of chocolates."
The people who did this are bullies who are throwing their toys out of the pram because they couldn't get their way. And the reason they couldn't get their way is because them and other politicians fiddled expenses to their own means to allow them to claim as much as possible on expenses so they didn't have to use any of their own money.
It's their own fault, and their own doing. And now they have the audacity to blame others.
Any MP found to be verbally abusing staff like that should have their expenses barred for a certain amount of time, perhaps six months.
No person deserves to be talked to like that. It's despicable behaviour. Anyone who acts that way should be ashamed of themselves and action should be taken against them.
