Given that MP's wrote the rules to pretty much allow themselves to steal our money at will, its quite some achievement to manage to breach those rules.
Personally I won't be happy until we see some of them getting jail time for their theft.

Justice is quite simple to administer in these cases (or a form of justice) at least.

Simple - ask your MP three questions:

1) How much did you claim in expenses?
2) How much have you had to pay back?
3) Do you feel that you were right in claiming those expenses?

Then ignore party politics completely, and vote for the candidate who has the most chance of unseating the incumbent. We get a mostly brand new house of commons, stuffed with people who know that the reason the last lot were kicked out was because they had no integrity whatsoever.

My MP is one of the "Saints" who did not rip the arrse out of it, but, she must be either stupid or dishonist, stupid for not realising all the tossers she was drinking tea with were claiming shed loads of wonger, or dishonist for not blowing the whistle, if she did know all her scum thieving mates were.

There can realy be no inocent MPs

Lets tell it like it is, its theft. Nothing more nothing less. Not scandal, not abuse of the system, Theft. The reason why all these politicians have said They'll resign at the next general election is because they retain a FULL retirement package and pension. Fair enough they might lose the resettlement bonus but they keep every thing else. If I blagged a JPA claim, i'd be charged and reduced in rank, if not banged up. Jail the thieving cnuts

I fully agree Bazz.
As luck would have it, I live next door to a Polling Station, my current MP's expenses claims will be printed in full and displayed on a very large poster attatched to my garden fence on polling day.
I shall have spares printed just incase anyone decided to remove it.
I may even take a day off work to make sure nobody commits criminal damage to my property :lol: Its not much but these small things can help you to feel much better!

This f*ckin breaks me how these cnuts carry on, any member of the public caught doing what they did would be doing time for fraud, but these lot get away with it, why arn't the police arresting every single MP who has made fraudulant claims and clearly broke the law?

Just be careful. If your current MP is Labour, you might find yourself suddenly becoming a suspected terrorist/paedo/racist/eco criminal. If you've got a beard, shave it now.

IIRC, there are five Labour MPs and peers being investigated by the Crown Prosecution Service. It'll be the Special Crime Division so the country's top lawyers are, as we speak, desperately looking for ways to avoid prosecution.

A lawyer mate reckons that at least two of them, who claimed for bogus mortgages, are guilty of fraud and have no defence. Maybe they'll get to share a cell.

Well done "jagman", I wish you well! I would advise you have at least one independent witness on hand plus a video camera in case some cnuts start any bother!
I'm afraid I dont believe the police or the CPS will really do anything to these cnuts of any of the current westminster crew, no matter which party they claim to be! Its the same with the "cash for honours" scandal which was swept under the carpet! Now, more worryingly, the pointless inquiries into the Iraq war and the lies told to justify it!
They are nearly ALL professional politicians, only interested in keeping their snouts in the trough no matter what!

Good man Jagman I'd buy you a beer for that! make sure that is not an empty promise. But obviously check where you stand on that. Its public knowledge though isn't it? So should be fine.

Anyone care to add any thoughtst to the legality of this excellent, splendid act?
Had a look on the electoral commission site. One of the scenarios described involved a car parked in the polling station car park with electioneering adverts in the window.

This would be illegal because you can't have political adverts within the bounds of the polling station.

However, the same car, with the same adverts parked on the public road would be legal because it's outside the polling station.

So long as your house is outside the boundary of the polling station, you should be OK so long as your poster doesn't feature a photoshopped image of your MP molesting a goat.

Better still, see if you can get a projector and put a two story image on the side of your house, 'Big Dave is Watching You' might be the way to go.

One Labour MP who is standing down a the general election has lost his £65,000 resetlement grant because of his shenanigans-

Not much, but its a start.
I would like to know, if there is enough evidence of skulduggery to so this, why isn't he in front of the Judge?
Don't count your chickens etc Jagman. The report concludes that he should lose is handout. Knowing these shits he will probably still walk away with the wonga.

As a result, it said Mr Cohen should now forfeit the £65,000 resettlement grant which he was due to receive when he stood down as a MP at the forthcoming general election.

I am so outraged at this poor mans predicament that I am going to transfer my £534 Resettlement grant for my 37Yrs to him so he can set himself up for the future!!

£65,000 how the feck do they qualify for that amount!!!!!!!!!!

When the sleaze-ridden Conservative government was voted out of power there was only one trial for corruption (+ 2 for perjury). If the Conservatives get back in I should imagine they'll be after a couple of Labour convictions just to remind everyone what a corrupt bunch Labour were.
The trouble is there just aren't enough men in white linen suits to stand as anti-sleaze candidates this time, more's the pity because they'd get my vote.

Giving these cnuts jail time (no doubt in Ford open country clu.,er prison) will cost the taxpayers dear,personally I would hang those guilty of theft.

Since The Telegraph expose,there seems to have been little of substance,to come out of this affair,in spite of what Bruin and Cameron say.Could it be that they think this will blow over? If so,they are very much mistaken.

Shoulld lose £65k grant - over-claimed £70K in allowance (probably a conservative estimate) plus he rented out his primary home.

Who says crime doesn't pay?
