Jack and Malcom free to take their seats in the snooze chamber after a sumptuous dinner and fine wines plus their £300 a day expenses.
Mr Fawkes must be spinning in his resting place at the thought of these parasites feeding of the poor tax payers being fleeced of the learned elite echelons governing the plebs so well?

‘Channel 4 and the Daily Telegraph issued statements defending their journalism, saying the investigation was in the public interest.
“Channel 4 Dispatches stands by its journalism; this was a fair and accurate account of what the two MPs said. This investigation was in the public interest and revealed matters which were of serious public concern,” the broadcaster said.
The Telegraph said: “The Daily Telegraph conducted an investigation that was in the public interest and accurately revealed matters … of concern to millions of voters. We raised a number of serious questions about the conduct of members of parliament. We suspect voters will find it remarkable that, despite the scandal of MPs’ expenses, parliament still sees fit for MPs to be both judge and jury on their own conduct.”

I think that the two investigations team should ask for a FOI on how the Adjudicator came to their decision and publish their report so the plebs in society have an insight into how their train of thought process works?
Freud would be kept busy analysing his findings on their results?
