On a point of disorder

People Management;6/4/2009, Vol. 15 Issue 12, p17
The author comments on the issue regarding the expenses of Members of Parliament (MPs) in Great Britain. He questions why many MPs felt they were entitled to all these allowances. He notes that since it is politically difficult to increase the salaries of MPs, they increased their monetary rewards through other means. He argues that if MPs believe that they have only one boss, perhaps they would have focused on how their expenses claims would appear to the outside world.
