Any MP writing on this matter should own up to his own claims. In 2004, I paid several bills late, including a council tax bill so tardy that I was forced to pay the rest of the year's payments in advance.The Commons authorities rejected two of my claims - one for a bed, one for a mattress.All-party groups of MPs to discuss 'important issues' multiplied.Early Day Motions - proposals for debate which are often trivial, seldom debated and nicknamed 'Parliamentary graffiti' abounded.But what is just as depressing is the way the Commons has connived in its own destruction.First, during the Seventies, the House began the transfer of its powers overseas to what became the EU.The Conservatives drew from the City, business, the law and farming.
