Looking after their own

Here's a rather bizarre example of politicians looking after themselves:
Julie Hutchison, an estate planning specialist at Standard Life, has pointed out that the IHT Act of 1984 has not been updated to take account of the fact that MSPs can be in political parties that are not represented in Westminster. Currently, the two Green MSPs, Robin Harper and Patrick Harvey, and independent MSP Margo MacDonald are not "represented" in the House of Commons so giving to them may not reduce the giver's IHT liability
