In this together?

Osborne is still spouting drivel, using the phrase "In this together."
Proof of the pudding will be when THEY the politicians give up their benefits provided by the taxpayers.
They too get housing benefits when they scrounge money from the taxpayers to purchase houses in London.
Other perks like cheap meals and booze in the Houses of Parliament, over inflated salaries, gas guzzling expensive cars to run around in and over the top heating bills for government buildings like Downing street and other departments, to name but a few, should  be reduced and some done away with permanently.
What makes them bigger scroungers than the actual needy is the fact that, individually, their withdrawals from the taxpayers are enormous in comparison.
No matter what  they would like to call their perks, they are still every bit as much WELFARE benefits as the poor and needy receive although they may come from a different purse.
The point is the money from all these purses come from the taxpayer, and until politicians also adhere to the severe cuts the general public have been burdened with, then and only then will they be entitled to use the phrase "We are all in this together."
