A 10ft duck house was floated past the Houses of Parliament yesterday afternoon by Vote for a Change.

With Westminster still grappling with the fallout from the expenses crisis and MPs griping about Sir Christopher Kelly's expenses recommendations, the attention grabbing plan was for grand conflagration outside the Commons' waterside terrace both as an alternative Bonfire Night tribute and a vivid reminder of the absurd abuses so publicly aired in the press this summer. We assume the health and safety bots put paid to the 'bonfire of the vanities' but sent photographer Daniel Lewis along for the float to get these great shots of the 'you can't duck change' protest.

The ‘Vote for a Change’ campaign is leading the call for a referendum on the voting system in the wake of the expenses crisis.
