To think it's utterly ridiculous that MPs get a free £15 dinner? And complain about it?

Don't most of the country have to buy their own food at work? Why is it any different for them? They get paid a decent salary, and with what they're allowed to claim through expenses, buying their own dinner shouldn't be a stretch.

The comment about the armed forces had me in shock.

And they brand other people scroungers.

I would agree that's standard - lunch isn't covered for us when we are travelling unless we happen to be at a course or event where it's provided. Breakfast and dinner are our norm and seem to be for most of the companies I know of in the industry.
