I would like to know where our money is going, what are our MPs spending it on? After all the recent news lately of MP's using their expenses to fund their lifestlye, i'd like to know what our local MP's are spending OUR money on. angry.gif I would also like a breakdown of what our council tax is being used for.
Whats everyones thought on this?
