In 1940, engaged in my duties on behalf of His Majesty, I had
occasion to abandon my Spitfire in rather difficult
circumstances. In doing so, I lost my left shoe. I claimed for
reimbursement but was told by the powers that were that
frivolous claims of that nature on the public purse would not
be tolerated.

I can only look with awe and admiration on the scale and
ingenuity of our parliamentary representatives. To paraphrase,
"Never in the field of British politics has so much been
fiddled from so many by so few".

I think that says it all really doesnt it?. Being ex air force myself, and hearing how defence cutbacks are effecting our forces morale and ability to perform thier duties. It cracks me up to see the scale of the abuse of government spending.
