What with the sudden amnesia and other failure of memory affecting the Murdochs and assorted Tories, it seemed time to start a competition as to the most bare faced cheek to try and avoid accountability. I play this: an MP up for £80k worth of fraud and false accounting offences in regards her expenses has raised a medical defence, "Dr Joseph told Lewes Crown Court the stress of the proceedings and allegations she was facing made it impossible for her to participate in court proceedings. He added that she felt feelings of abandonment by the Labour Party and shame that her career was over". BBC News - Ex-Luton MP Margaret Moran 'not fit for trial', a court is told Er, isn't that "I can't defend myself because I'm upset, so acquit me". What a cracking stated case that would be!
