As the ongoing fuss over the alleged "swivel eyed loons" comment made in reference to Tory activists continues, the media and politicians would be well advised to take a deep breath and calm down.
All parties contain elements within that the leadership of those parties would rather do without. Additionally, the term "swivel eyed" is nothing new; it was used to describe certain supporters of John Redwood when he stood to challenge John Major in 1995.
Get over yourselves and focus on more important issues!

How ironic that Labour want to make work experience compulsory, given that many MPs have never had a real job in their lives and have no concept of how the real world (9-5 drudgery and commuting) actually works!
They should do this first themselves, before they impose it on others!

Stewie - Little List
It's great being an MP, you get to claim interest relief on your second property and then when you sell it at a profit you get to pay back the capital gain to IPSA (The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority) at your leisure (apart from Strewart Jackson MP who is being sued by IPSA)!
Here is a list of MP's property transactions.

Revenue is not taxable, profits are.
You might want to remember that the next time you publicise attention seeking soundbites about companies not paying "enough" tax on their "revenues"!
Your accountants, that you use for you company accounts and trust funds etc, should have told you that!
