The austerity drama

The din surrounding the much publicised austerity drive initiated by the central government has died down. Thanks to the media that ha an attention span of a three-month old.
At this point the 'big bosses' at the centre has unanimously passed a bill that allows a member of parliament to travel in a plane free of charge ...wait for it.. taking any number of companions with them!
This is at a time when we shed money equal to a plane ticket to the Bahamas for buying onions and carrots.
Grief for us and relief for them?
