    Default MP's fears of expenses 'suicide'

    The atmosphere at Westminster has become so "unbearable" due to expenses revelations that a suicide is feared, one MP named in the row has warned.

    Tory Nadine Dorries, who the Daily Telegraph said only spends weekends and holidays in her designated main home, warned MPs were "beginning to crack".

    Would that be a Japanese style code of honour? …or good old ruin and humiliation.
    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    this isn't funny guys. Suicide is an individual tragedy - no matter how much we might despise the image of the person committing the act.

    Surely the current sleaze is tiny potatoes compared to what MPs are usually up to? Jobs after office (cash for honours), pensions, etc. Look at the way Blair is raking it in.
