So funnyman to Middle England, Stephen Fry thinks the scandal of MPs' expenses is no more than a 'journalistic frenzy' does he? Interviewed for Newsnight last night, he practically spat the words and accused people outraged by claims for mending tennis courts, swimming pools and having their wisteria pruned as mere 'bourgeous' preoccupations. Speaker of the House of Commons Michael Martin blamed the media too, a lazy and kneejerk reaction. In today's Times columnist David Aaronovitch also pokes fun at the nation's outrage at discovering the newest sport at Westminster, 'flipping,' has nothing to do with pancake day. Well, all three of those men in their cosy metropolitan Westminster-media-showbix nexus enjoy salaries way above the average in this country and I can tell you, Mr Fry, Mr Martin and Mr Aaronovitch that particularly now when for the vast majority of people putting food on the table and clothing their children is considered a heroic achievement, being asked to pay for Hazel Blears' property portfolio or Mr Letwin's tennis court maintenance sticks in the craw somewhat. Stick to the jokes, Mr Fry, you're better at those than poilitcial commentary.
