SIR - I have just read the letter from my MP Barbara Follett addressing her reasons for claiming, and now paying back, those expenses.

I would like to know in view of her explanation, how �1,600 for window cleaning could be considered a justifiable parliamentary expense? Does serving as an MP make one's windows somehow more grubby?

Oh dear, they still don't get it, do they?
