An investigation has been launched into whether MSPs truly exist or whether they are a fabricated attempt to show some signs of order within a country of mayhem.
The phenomenon of “phantom politicians” reared its head following a survey of working adults in Scotland. Only 0.4% of respondents could name three or more politicians in Scotland and not a single person could recall any significant input from any MSP in anything. It is now thought that up to three-quarters of official MSPs are in fact “ringers” who exist in name and expense claims only.
Attendence figures at Government debates would appear to back-up this claim, although lunch bookings at the MSP's subsidised restaurant would indicate that numbers may be more than some suspect.
