Robert Peston: 'MPs don't pay for lunch'

BBC business editor Robert Peston was asked last night: "Whose worst - MPs or bankers?"
Peston, sitting on a Question Time-style panel at a House of Commons fund raiser for the Journalists' Charity, slightly dodged the question but made an interesting comparison.
He said:"When I was at the Financial Times, MPs would ring you up looking to have lunch with you, name a restaurant and order the most expensive wine. You would always pay. Bankers would buy you lunch."

Either way - it was the dear old general public that ultimately paid the bill..... both are by their very nature, parasitical.
