The Archbishop -defending priviledge against principles

rather than being outraged at the thought that MPS have been stealing off the taxpayers for the past 20 years or so , the archbishop of canterbury Rowan Williams said The continuing systematic humiliation of politicians itself threatens to carry a heavy price in terms of our ability to salvage some confidence in our democracy." - is the man for real the MPS deserve to be humiliated and the people have the right to know - many MPS should count themselves lucky that they haven't been arrested. A message to the archbishop , it's not the people who are undermining democracy rather the MPS themselves are.

John mann a labour MP proving that there are still some honourable mps in response to the Archbishop's comments said John Mann told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that the public had "a right to know" about MPs' expenses and that, ultimately, British politics could be strengthened by the affair.

He said: "Clearly there's major embarrassment, there will be casualties, we don't know politically who the casualties will end up being, and so it's major trauma for the political system and for politicians.

"But if we handle it well from now on, we'll recover confidence and we could have a far better political system even within a matter of months."
