MPs’ Expenses Row: There’s tough economic questions in this | ToUChstone blog: A public policy blog from the TUC.

As David Marquand put it eloquently in a Guardian piece on Tuesday: what lies behind much of the public anger [about MP's expenses] is the collapse of the post-war social contract whereby citizens offered the state their loyalty in return for jobs, rising living standards and social protection. I’m afraid it will take a lot more than fixed term parliaments to re-build that contract.

I agree with Adam Lent.

I also think PR will help.
