Not good enough

They just don’t get it, do they?

Now that many of our MPs have been caught out as greedy troughing cunts there’s now an undignified scramble as they wave cheques about, make apologetic noises and start to see the gravy train derailing at the next election.

But it was never about the money.

It’s all about their abuse of our trust in them – that their claims would follow the guidelines and be for expenses incurred in their duties as MPs.

So far, what have we got?

Words and a poxy £100 000 being paid back.

It’s not good enough.

Neither Brown, Cameron nor Clegg have shown themselves to have any balls and taken active steps to punish those who have abused the system.

Yes, 20 MPs are going to pay back a small fraction of what they guzzled from the Westminster trough but it’s a drop in the ocean.

Only if tough measures to punish those who have abused our trust are taken will our MPs be able to be trusted again.

Everyone must be named, shamed, thrown out of their party if they have submitted and received fraudulent claims, the relevant criminal prosecution brought if applicable and all moneys obtained that break the code of practice current at the time of the claim returned in full, with interest.

That would satisfy people that Parliament might once again be trusted.

But will it happen?

Will it fuck.
