MLAs grow fat at the expense of taxpayers

I READ with interest your article (News, December 16) about the fine foods our MLAs enjoy at Stormont - subsidised, of course, by the hard-pressed taxpayer.

It's a bit rich for Edwin Poots, the DUP health minister, to say on BBC's Hearts and Minds (December 15) that ordinary people should go back to eating homemade broth and stew - "it's cheap and wholesome".

Typical DUP - treating the taxpayers like idiots while they live off the fat of the land.

An old saying springs to mind: "Put a devil on horseback and he'll ride straight to hell."
