The "Distraction" of Millergate


Maria Miller has finally resigned her office, on the basis that the affair is proving to be a distraction to the work of her party.

All very well and dandy, as far as that goes. However, she and some in her party have not learned the fundamental lesson from this. Irrespective of whether she really believes that it was OK to only repay £5,800 out of the £45,000 that the independent parliamentary commissioner for standards had previously recommended, the voters do not think that this was right.

Like it or not MPs cannot be seen to be milking taxpayers' money for their own personal benefit.

Public service means just that, the role is for the benefit of the "public" not for the MP's personal gain.

The fact that neither she nor her leader seems to have got that point yet indicates a vast disconnect between some of those in Westminster and the voters.

I Am The Law!


IDS lays down the law to Maria Miller....ermmm, no, not quite!
"People who do the wrong thing will see the consequences for that action, and that is a principle should apply to everybody".

Millergate


I thought Cameron and the government was against tax avoidance these days?

It seems, based on Millergate, that I was wrong!

Advice To Nigel Farage

Don't boast about "harvesting" votes from the BNP. Having a core base of bigots in a political party is nothing to be proud of.

Brighton Welcomes David Cameron


David Cameron is in Brighton today.

I wonder if he will visit the Marina and enter via the "elegant and welcoming" pedestrian entrance?

No, I thought not!

Advice To Clegg and Miliband


Gentlemen re voters accepting a gay PM, I think you will find that ship may have already sailed. Scuttlebutt on the net indicates that we may have had at least one gay PM already.

As if it really matters anyway what an individual's orientation is, you shouldn't make a political issue out of it!
