Rejected petition Cap politicians expenses to just 10k per year

The amount of money claimed back from politicians in expenses is ridiculously high. By reducing this amount to just 10k per year is more than enough especially with the amount of money they get paid on top. Saving the difference can go towards paying for more nurses in our wonderful NHS.
