"...it's a fa'k't."
It appears now that numerous MPs have no idea about right and wrong, even when the rules are clear. They are happy to blag and bluff for personal advantage.
These MPs are meant to be our representatives, meant to create, amend or repeal our laws. To do that they need to KNOW what is right in the absence of laws or rules so that the right laws and rules can then be created. Justice and the Rule of Law should be in the very fibre of their being, written through them top to tail like Brighton Rock.
And we have reports of Shahid Malik, Justice Minister*, claiming the absolute maximum second home allowance on his constituency home. For. Three. Years. Running. Are we meant to believe that all these purchases are essential for him to perform his duties? He even used his expenses to pay his fine. Justice? It is an alien concept to him.
This man is supposed to understand what is right and what is wrong. He has proven himself to be incompetent - and that is a very polite term in this case. If he survives the day in office, it is further proof of Labour's utter contempt. Not surprised, really, considering they are chock full of Trots, Marxists and Fabians.
BTW, we now know the cost of filling a trough with food: £400pcm per snout.
