Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: British MP's Expenses Scandal : The Trough Thickens

British MP's Expenses Scandal : The Trough Thickens



Today we intended telling the terrible tale of the 'take what you want when you want' culture of (apparently), tons of turdy Brit members of parliament.

But then, somebody anonymously sent us this particularly odious porker-picture...



...which, suddenly made us stop and wonder why we should bloomin' be bothered to.

Since 'The Telegraph' is already doing such a sterling job of explaining and exposing exactly what sort of absolutely stinking stuff has (seemingly, serially) been happening in our old Brit House of Commons.

So, click here to see lots & lots about some of said shocking smelly shenanigans for yourself.

Shame?

This shower of SOBs simply possesses none.

Further evidence of the Americanisation of our country.

If you or I, or any ordinary person did this, not only would we sacked on the spot but we'd be prosecuted in no time flat.

Further evidence of our country's great "us and them" divide.

And still we tolerate it. [Maybe we deserve all we get.]

These leeches are a law unto themselves. No wonder our taxes are what they ~ someone's got fork out for this lot's "little perks of the job". Someone like you and me.

Politicians have always been leeches sucking the blood of the public for centuries. It's just that now we have the fast information flow that let's us know what they are doing on the spot. So most of us are shocked! Don't be..... it's the same old story....

The only thing I am worried about is that, the same politicians and members of the "establishment" will get their long tentacles into our free internet where the information flow will be limited and controlled liked the cooperate media....

Looks like they're almost as bad as our own political critters, Richard.

I think the MPs should pay it back. http://www.payitback.co.uk

Nevin is quite right. It's nothing new, merely that communication is so much better these days and facts come to light more easily. I, too, share her concerns re internet freedoms. It's already being slowly and methodically eroded.
Incidentally, Richard, there's an award waiting for you over at my place, if you wish to claim it.
