Fab Macca fed up with expenses

Paul McCartney has said that he didn't vote in the recent elections because he was "disillusioned" with the British political system in the wake of the recent expenses scandal. Oh! To question his taxi receipts. . . .

"I didn't vote in the last election," Macca told The Independent. "All that expenses rubbish has made me disillusioned with British politics.

"I didn't feel comfortable using my vote to get any of them in power. All of them seem to be up for ripping off expenses and making themselves as powerful as possible and I don't want a part of that."
