Depsite being a thief and a fraudster she gets away with nothing more than being told to apologise.
Tough on crime huh?
Only if it's the working classes :roll:

Is anyone actually surprised by this? Its just a joke.
No not surprised, disgusted yes, disappointed yes. Surprised, not in the least

Meanwhile, in other news MP's are planning on refusing to pay back the money they have stolen from us-

Thieves, every last stinking, corrupt, leech

Not much we can do about it but I live next door to a polling station, come the general election there will be a huge poster across my garden fence detailing the expenses of the Labour MP (and party whip) here.
I shall take a day off work and make sure it stays there. Its not much but its a start.

Well what a suprise! Caught with her fingers in the proverbial cookie jar & not even a slapped wrist! She has to apologise to the House of Commons...What about an apology to those who elected them,the PUBLIC!?
No doubt Ashie will be along soon in her defence...

Never mind a fooking apology, I want my money back and the thief prosecuted. Never happen but its what I want, I won't be happy with anything else.
Thieving bitch

Is it possible to take out a private prosecution if no official source is going to do so?

I don't have anywhere near the resources to do that (and I doubt many have) but it would be nice to see and would waken up quite a few of those robbing bastards.

I doubt we'll see ashie any time soon since he made this comment in another thread about General Dannatt:

He clearly demonstrates why soldiers should stick to what they know and stay out of politics, if that's what you mean.
Because we all know the best politicians are career politicians who have never worked in the real world. Is that what you mean ashie?
Has Lord Dannatt worked in "the real world"?

By real world I take it he means Westminster where the public purse is not something to be caressed and protected but plundered for personal gain.

Why does it not surprise me, these people have no honour and have as much in common with the Chav scum that rip the arse out of the benefits system.

The only way is to sack/shoot/behead/hang the lot and start again. Give them a salary and enforced accomodation such as an old set of barracks say at Woolwich where they can live 4 to a room with communal toilets and showers, damp in the rooms and central heating that only works when the temp outside is in the mid 30's. No expense claims, they have to fund everything themselves.

Im sick to death of people sniping at our MPs they do on the whole a jolly good job, these people have dedicated their lives to public service which is a thanless task at the best of times they recieve far less than they would had they choosen to take their not inconsiderable skills/expertise into the private sector, and when these decent and honest public servants are through sheer financial pressure forced to be a tad cute with the expenses there pilloried and humiliated to the extent some have even been forced to resign, thus depriving the country of their much needed skills ,why not pay them a decent livable salary of say 300k in the first place and then only allow them expenses for the bare essentials of life, i cannot see any rational fair minded person having a issue with that

On the assumption you aren't taking the pish......
All of these people took u politics as a career by choice, all of them used the oppurtunity to help themselves to money from the public purse.
You think many of them would survive in the private sector, most of them would be in jail for stealing from their employer
And you have the barefaced fooking cheek to claim they have been forced into it by through financial pressure????
What about the rest of us out here in the real world feeling the financial pressure entirely due to the lunatic spending by these very same people who have stolen vast sums of money from us.

Lets not beat about the bush, it is theft. They obtained money by deception and you claim it is the publics fault? What fooking planet do you live on?

Auxie stop talking Sh1te, they are overpaid for the hours they actually do, they are over cossetted, what other employment pays you an allowance to live close to your workplace, and its their choice to do it, and now they believe that they are above the law that us mere mortals have to obey. Fraud is Fraud and it should be treated as such.

If they were so skilled why dont they take up employment and contribute to society that way?

Most MP's now are professional politicians having never held down a real job since leaving university.

I suppose we have the satisfaction of knowing that here dishonesty cost her her Cabinet position, and that because of her claims for her husbands w*nk films she is a national laughing stock

But then of course she still has a date with destiny at the next election after which she will probably be unemployed.

At least she has already got experience of cheating the system, so when she signs on she has already got a head start.
