More money wasted & Weimar redux

Never renowned for his modesty, Speaker John Bercow has outdone himself this week: unveiling not only his £22,000 official portrait, but also its £15,000 frame, which includes a new Bercow coat of arms. He used to best David Cameron on the court regularly.

IMO: We are not getting value for money with these politicians. That sort of thing may have made some kind of warped sense when a UK boast used to be that 'everywhere on the map you will see pink' (i.e. a British colony). But nowadays the Foreign Office is even warning embassies about doubts as to the safety of UK citizens in the German Eurozone. And Germany is printing lots and lots of currency - IN DEUTSCHEMARKS NOT EUROS !!
