Don't be a meanie!

£12.29. That's the taxpayer subsidy for every meal that an MSP (or a journo) takes in the parliament's restaurant, at least according to The Sunday Mail (here).

Do I grudge this? Well, some of our MSPs (and all of the journos) are a bit on the porky side. And, what with their expenses and salaries, they could probably afford to pay for a fish supper from their own pockets.

But I'm more or less sure that they work hard, I think ... and it would be churlish to deny them their little perks.
