Sir: If there has ever been a fine example of the maxim "a law for one, and a law for another", then the case of the "cash for questions" is it (" `Cash for questions' MPs face suspension", 5 April).

Surely, the people who govern this country should be beyond reproach. I'm therefore disgusted that the MPs David Tredinnick and Graham Riddick should get off with such an easy punishment.

It seems we must now accept that the Conservative idea of honesty and integrity is not the same as everyone else's.

Would a policeman found to be guilty of taking bribes be given 10 or 20 days suspension without pay for punishment?

I think not.
