While politicians like to go to great lengths to pretend they're just ordinary people, run of the mill West Ham (or is it Aston Villa?) fans, they earn salaries that most of us can only dream about. Plus, being in a position of power opens doors to big salaries, in-the-know money making ventures, and, of course, writing off unusual luxury goods as expenses. I mean, we'd all like our moat cleaned courtesy of the tax payers (no joke, one British MP actually claimed moat cleaning as an expense!) - it's better than ending up in the ditch!
