The Snitching Begins....

A Convicted Thief

Oh what a shame!

Seems that an aggrieved MP "representing a Northern constituency" has bubbled six other MPs over fiddling their expenses because he felt he was being made an example of.

Let's hope this has the same effect as rolling a snowball down a steep and snow-covered hill....after all, there have been a whole lot of snouts in the trough!

Never was the phrase "There's no honour amongst thieves" more apt ..

If only this could change our world for the better.

That has got to be Ilsley - I read somewhere that he was angry because he had always been told to consider his expenses as an extenion of his salary requiring only the flimsiest of cover. Hence the fraudulent thief bizarrely believes he is being victimised whereas the general population believes the opposite - that the net of criminal charges has not been cat nearly wide enough.

Oldrightie - it won't change the world for the better but it will be massively entertaining as the body politic starts to eat itself.

Wonderful! I can see this as an ever increasing cascade as more & more of the thieving c**** who feel they're entitled to rip off the public discover that this just isn't so.

Captain Haddock said...

This could become the "must watch" entertainment sensation of 2011 ..

The "which of the thieving bastards will end up in pokey next" ?

Oh how we'll all laugh as the high & mighty (in their own twisted little minds) fall like skittles ..

No wonder "they" want voting rights for bloody convicts ..

Any preferences for who he's named - my choices

Former Labour Cabinet Minister: Geoff Hoon

2 Labour MPs: Keith Vaz and Stewart Bell

2 Tories: Nadine Dorries and Brian Binley

Liberal Democrat: Simon Hughes

I'm assuming by the descriptions that certain people are excluded but if it's that lot I will be opening a nice bottle of Chablis

Any of that little lot having to slop-out would suit me .. lol

As Winston Churchill wrote to an pedantic civil servant who had attempted to correct the great man's grammar, "This is the sort of impertinence up with which I shall not put!"
