What our MPigs actually eat from their Westminster troughs

Yes, it’s all here.

Where else could you have this:

Haricot Bean Soup with Croutons

Grilled Pork Escalope with
Creamed Peppercorn Sauce

for a mere £3?

No, that’s not a typo – the soup is 60p and the pork is £2.40.

£3!

Here’s a clue:

Read it and fucking weep.

Unsurprisingly, the whole exercise in keeping our MPs gorged at our expense runs at a fucking great loss.

Figures released under FoI show that in 2007/8, House of Commons catering had an income of £7,173,800, against an expenditure of £12,625,800 – meaning a subsidy of £5,452,000.

If it was a private concern it would have gone tits up years ago.

I’ve just emailed my MP asking how she can justify this.

I await her answer twitchily, with thoughts of lampposts and piano wire running through my head…

Hat tip to Old Holborn.

  1. i’ve only just seen this, this is crazy, they are eating a la carte menus for the price of school dinners.

  2. Please spread the word around.
    It was news to me until recently too and it’s a scandal – especially when most MPs make in excess of £165K a year.
    People should know about such things.
