The general standing of MPs has taken an even worse beating that Brown, 89 percent now think less of them. There is more than 90 percent support for publishing expenses in full and for having an independent body run the system. Only 29 percent think MPs should be able to claim for a second home.
One finding in the survey surprised me: one in five people think that MPs should be able to claim for food. I never would have imagined that support for this would be this high.
