Criminal sentences for politicians who are caught abusing expenses

Additional Information

If the courts are handing out jail sentences to people who steal 2 scoops of ice cream, £3.50 cases of water from Lidl's and receiving a stolen pair of shorts and the current government thinks this fair and reasonable. Then I think it's time to look back at all the embezzlement of taxpayers money by politicians because they 'forgot' which house they lived in and claimed expenses they weren't entitled to.
