Capitalists always justify high incomes and profits on the basis that wealth trickles down. Isn't this what Derek Conway MP did? The fact that he is not going to have a police investigation seems to me irrelevant. If no-one knows whether or not any work was done, then surely the issue is: what is Mr Conway for?

I only know that my MP is still alive because I have seen that he votes in the Commons on 'They work for you'. Perhaps a civil servant could deal with constituency issues like getting your letter put to the top of a council department's list and other pastoral matters.They might even be bothered to write or e-mail to you. Then the numbers of MPs could be cut and the money spent on schoolsandhospitals.
