MPs and MEPs Are Not Like Pigs At The Trough

Oinks to the right, squeals to the left.
Please stop comparing MPs and MEPs to pigs at the trough - British pigs receive absolutely no subsidy from the taxpayer.

This would actually contravene pig stocking density regulations* during the Budget speech but would qualify as free range for the rest of the time.


* floor area of chamber is 3128 square feet, stocking density for porkers 50-80kg is 5.9 square feet, number of MPs in the chamber is more than 530.
