I don't get the expenses scandal.  I'm dumb founded by it frankly.  You're one of the most powerful countries on earth, and you're willing to scrap your entire government because your leaders and writing off home improvements?  Either I am an incredibly cynical American (uhm, don't all politicians do this?) and the Brits have intriguingly high standards (so weird, though, for such a class obsessed country, and one with a Monarch, to be indignant about the sense of entitlement among those in power), or there is something more going on here.
