CITY VIEWS: IS IT RIGHT THAT POLITICIANS LOSE THEIR JOBS OVER EXPENSE CLAIMS?

<strong>ROBERT SKRMETTA </strong> AON<br />&ldquo;These people should not be allowed into office ever again and in certain cases they should be facing criminal charges. They shouldn&rsquo;t be given the option to resign, they should be fired instead. They have taken advantage of their situation to overuse taxpayers&rsquo; money.&rdquo;<br /><br /><strong>MATTHEW MELVILLE </strong> GCUBE<br />&ldquo;I can understand it partly because they&rsquo;re not that well paid and they&rsquo;re in the press all the time. But someone claiming for a duck pond or a non-existent mortgage is ridiculous. I&rsquo;m happy to pay the &pound;7 for Jacqui Smith&rsquo;s husband to watch porn though, simply for the amusement value.&rdquo;<br /><br /><strong>TERRY FITZGERALD </strong> INSURANCE<br />&ldquo;Whether or not its resignation, there should be more of a move from leaders to put pressure on some of these MPs to go. The argument that it was within the rules is redundant, they have breached the spirit of them. I don&rsquo;t claim for a home if I commute, so why is it different for them?&rdquo;
