Snouts still in the trough

Recommended Posts

This is all getting very interesting. Calls for the leader of the house to resign and then an annoncement by Esther Rantzen to make a stand as an independent MP in response to the MP's scandal. The same Esther Rantzen that fronted a series of advertisements for an ambulance chasing claims company.

 

To quote Littlejohn........"you couldn't make this up".

 

At the same time the two main party leaders decide not to say yes or no on the issue of wether or not he (Mr Martin) should go.

 

Interesting times.

A point of order Mr Grumpy, the Leader of the House is not the same person as The Speaker. Just thought I'd mention it............ :wink::wink:

Had to pay my corporation tax today and wasn?t sure who to make it out to? Should it be the Inland Revenue or should I save time and just make it out to the two Helens? :lol:

I wonder just how much the well founded public scorn, will show itself in tactical voting from now on, and whether this National moral trauma will translate into the required root and branch constitutional reforms required of a modern democracy? :? Not if the politicians have anything to do with it. :roll::cry:

The idea that "one" individual can enter this "club" and change rules and practises that have their origins in self gratification, is a naive notion - the destruction of "families" through "child-line" is no recomendation either! :roll::wink:

It said on the news that the Speaker will announce his resignation this afternoon, but no clue as to when it will take place, Guess it depends on what bottle Gordon has. :roll:

this abuse of priviledge is going to run an run.

Next are the people who are on the boards of more than one company just like united utilities chairman and lloyds bank

then we have all the quangos and NHS trust jobs for the boys that need looking at for example Cheshire police authority has many people who have more than 3 "jobs"

 

Howe do they do a "fair days work"?

 

where is it going to end?

I used to work for a company which had John Maples (Conservative) on the board of Directors (This was over 12 years ago) and from what I recall he was paid around ?50,000 then!

 

The Telegraph should start digging into how much the MPs get from 2nd incomes because I think it will really upset the public; especially when they earn all of this extra money and were still claiming money to pay for second homes

Just hope the Press keep sniffing. :wink:

 

I think they'll be doing that alright....Baz in one of his posts has given them a pointer. Of course a fair number of them are practising Barristers...which timewise fits in nicely with being a (part time) MP. :wink:

What perks can he claim in the Lords? :?:shock:

 

Seems as though Lord Lawson (Nigel Lawson) has started a campaign to keep him out of The Lords. :wink:

 

Nice one Nigel. :lol:

 

What happened to Brown's "we will not reward failure"?

Looking at a Council By-Election result from yesterday, it seems voters are turned off the main parties preferring to vote for smaller parties such as BNP, UKIP & Greens...maybe a sign of things to come on 4th June....along with a low turnout, it was 42% in Warrington in 2004 with an all postal vote...I would be surprised if it reaches that level this time.
