Politicians from all sides are frustrated that regular politics has effectively been put on hold while certain MPs are forced to justify the fact they used public money to install mock Tudor beams or to remove moles from their land.
And "regular politics" being on hold is a bad thing? I think that it's rather good that the members of the exclusive Westminster Village echo chamber are discovering that they have to pay attention to the people who pay for them, and not "do as I say, not as I do". (For example, special casing ContactPoint to exclude their own children.) Maybe the agenda should include what the public wants, not just what Westminster, Whitehall and the orbiting media thinks it should be. "Regular politics" has been turning people off for years.
