There's a Basil Fawlty hotel service just perfect for MPs...

By Lindy McDowell

It may be a particularly female way of coming at a problem but with MPs continuing to claim megabucks on London accommodation expenses, why doesn't the state just buy them a hotel between them?

Surely the annual total claimed by out-of-towners would pay for a good Best Western.

We don't need to go the whole five-star either.

As doubtless all those representatives from working class constituencies would agree. And how rewarding for us all to see the right kind of staff recruited to serve those who serve.

Surely there's a Basil Fawlty out there just perfect for the place.
