Westminster summer of nothing

They already decide on their own pay rises and lucrative expenses claims. And today MPs vote to preserve their extensive summer holiday.

The Commons vote this afternoon on whether or not to sit during the first fortnight of September.

I wonder what the outcome will be? Remember that this year they couldn't even be persuaded to get back and discuss the war in Lebanon.

And will this right be extended to other public servants? How would nurses vote if they could decide their own pay and holidays?
