Make a meal of it.
There will be bairns in the schemes going to bed hungry tonight, while MSPs tuck into their publicly funded Perthshire lamb with spring vegetables and salsa verde, and smoked venison with Strathdon cheese.
I'm sure that the MSPs will discuss the plight of the hungry children while they are stuffing their faces.
If we reduced their salaries to 1.5 times the average weekly wage, and made them pay for their own food, like normal folks do, those and such as those would toddle off to the private sector, where they belong, leaving parliamentary service to the truly dedicated.
The First Minister's spokesman says that he is standing by McAlpine, his parliamentary liaison officer.
No he's not - he's sitting at the same subsidised table.
And it's high time we did something about it.
