LibDem Conmen Should Be Expelled From Parliament

Liars, Conmen And Cheats

I support the tuition fee proposals.  They seem very fair to me and I can’t see that any prospective student can have any complaint about the terms offered.

However, if you’re an MP and before the election you signed a pledge to vote against any increase in tuition fees then you have no choice.  It doesn’t matter if you’re a minister or if the economic situation is worse than you thought it was.  This is black and white.  It’s clear cut.  There can be no argument.  If you break your signed commitment then you have to go.

If you seek to evade your commitment or fudge the issue then you compound your crime.  And I see no reason why it should not be a crime.  In civil law it is a clear breach of contract but it is much more serious than that.  It is obtaining a seat in parliament on false pretences.  It wasn’t a vague promise made in the heat of the election campaign.  It was a written agreement.

Nick Clegg, Vince Cable and all their cronies who have broken their word should be frogmarched out of parliament and charged with criminal deception.  They should all go to jail.  Not for a long time.  Six months will do but each and every one of them is a proven liar, conman and cheat.  They have no honour.

Unless parliament takes this action to preserve its integrity, then its reputation will sink even lower.  It sets the most appalling example to the country and any MP who allows this scandal to persist without action is an accessory after the fact.

Shame on you, you weak and pathetic cowards.  You disgrace yourselves and our country.

Alistair Darling And The Rest – Liars, Cheats And Thieves

What exactly is it that entitles cabinet ministers to have their accountants’ fees paid for by the taxpayer?

All nine ministers must be sacked and the police brought in to investigate.  There is not the slightest excuse for this blatant thievery.

Scumbag Thief

Scumbag Thief

This is perhaps the most disgraceful episode of all.  While you can argue (well you can try)  that duck houses and food bills have something to do with a second home which is necessitated by Parliamentary duties, claiming your accountants fees on expenses is nothing short of cheating the taxpayer.

Alistair Darling, Jacqui Smith, Hazel Blears, David Miliband, James Purnell, Douglas Alexander, Geoff Hoon and Hilary Benn – you are liars, cheats and thieves.  You should all be behind bars.

Wholly, Exclusively And Necessarily

If your expenses do not pass that test then you have broken the rules.  It’s black and white.  Forget the background, the explanation, that you deserve a bigger salary, how busy you were at the time,  saying you were only obeying the rules (“orders” in the Nuremberg defence).  All these miscreant MPs must be brought to account and if the police are not going to have the courage to take the necessary steps then some other method must be devised by which to bring these cheats before the courts.
