Notice the slight change in post title for this post? I decided to cast aside my normal somewhat cynical approach to politicians in the UK Parliament (Having difficulty now using the pronoun 'my'!) in view of the new governement.
Who am I to assume that any consignment of fraudsters and thieves (many of whom managed to hold onto the seats and are still in parliament) cannot have a 'road to Dasmascus' moment and vow meaningfully never again to steal a single penny piece from the taxpaying citizens of the UK?
In this heady atmosphere of bonhommie and general backslapping (makes a change from back stabbing!) I have only five questions;-
1). What news of the 'minnows' and their trial?
2). What news of of IPSA?
3). Anyone know where we misplaced the Fraud Act?
4). Any idea if the new Prime Minister and the new Chancellor will be claiming for a second (or third) home to be near parliament... now that we also pay for them to stay in Downing Street and one or two other 'grace and favour homes'?
5). When will we, the taxpaying citizen voters of the UK, hear the slamming of cell doors behind ALL those politicians who have stolen public monies?
Those nice people the Canadians are having trouble getting information on the fiddles practised by their MPs...... OOOps! I done it again.... I mean the expenses details of their MPs!
Nothing to worry about though.... Their MPs assert that all is well and therefore there is no need for an independent audit!..... Sounds familiar?
