Elitist MPs who want to hide

I am amazed that it is even being considered that MPs addresses should be kept secret because of security.

I am not sure if the rules have changed but MPs addresses appear on nomination papers and ballot papers so why would hiding their addresses between elections be any safer, after all, it would take a pretty thick protester not to be able to find their address through other means.

Its less to do with real security concern (as you point out any determined protester or security threat will find out pretty easily) and its more to do with the increasing separation of our elected representatives and the people they (supposedly) represent.

Another example of MPs treating themselves as a special case, because they have somehow convinced themselves that they are special.
