Blogbites #1: Having your cake and eating it

Confronted with the current state-of-play in terms of MPs forced out of Westminster, Tories at LibCon are claiming that it’s because Cameron is whiter than white – he’s making every last thief go. Brown, on the other hand, is letting them stay, if they are in the Cabinet. Which is why we’ve seen resignations from Chris Grayling and Alan Duncan. Er, or not.

So far the tally stands at eight Tories standing down to five Labour, with two in the post. I’m waiting for a subsequent glut of Labour resignations, when the self-same Tories will claim proves their point, that Labour is more corrupt. A case of wishing to have one’s cake and eat it there, I think – which they may get away with, bearing in mind which newspapers have control of this particular scandal.

The debate over which Party is worse seems as pointless as arguing about who should play First Violin while the Titanic sinks, and those who engage in it demonstrate themselves to be more interested in scoring political points than they are genuinely outraged that their taxes have been put to such ridiculous uses as cleaning moats, building duck houses and an endless succession of giant televisions.

For the record, I do not even own a television.

    It does not matter anymore does it Labour has 5, Tories has eight, none of them have gone they are all stepping down at the next election so the greedy git’s can have the extra payments, it’s not good enough is it.

    Parachute payments extra years wages. All this on top of the money they took.

    I’m disabled if I did this I be repaying the money and getting my benefits stopped for fraud, if your an MP they pay you more.

    I got our TV for £30 or so off Ebay. It works. I have the receipt somewhere. I keep meaning to publish it.

    By the way, I can’t see the video in your latest post. May be my computer. What is it?

    It’s John McDonnell’s speech to the PCS conference. Very good, though I am of course horribly biased.
