I have to rely on Cameron to put things right, kick out the cheats, ensure the law is applied to anyone who has committed a crime etc etc..

I find this mind-boggling. Cameron IS one of the cheats. He's a millionaire who has claimed over eighty thousand pounds of public money, yet who drones on constantly about the need for public spending cuts and pay restraint in the public sector. He's talking about pay freezes for nurses and teachers, but claims 80 grand of public money on expenses... that he -- as you yourself acknowledge -- clearly doesn't even need!

But he's the guy you're counting on to shake things up and put them right?



(and lest you think this is an anti-tory rant, it isn't... a quick look at my blog post will show I actually spent more time lambasting the labour MPs for their craven behaviour. The only reason we're discussing Cameron is because he's the only MP anyone here has tried to defend... and yet everytime you post here you make a big deal about how anti-Tory we are. Haven't you woken up to the fact that we're just anti-scumbag career politicians?)

quite right... how can Cameron can pay back £700 for money he claimed to fix his conservatory and at the same time say he is sickened by MPs taking the piss on expenses....? i go for the lying sack of shit explanation.

Fuel for extremists?
May 15, 2009, 14:19
I was considering whether to bother using my vote in the upcoming elections, but this chap on the TUC website might have a point:

"Refusing to vote will not stop a single councillor or MEP getting elected. Instead it will simply make it much more likely that extremists - particularly those peddling race hate and intolerance - will be elected. This is a particular danger in the Euro-elections where the proportional system allows people to get elected on a relatively small share of the vote."

...As does this writer, from a race debate website:

"There is no better breeding ground for the toxic politics of the extreme Right or Left than a zero-growth economy where, on one hand, people fear for their jobs, income, savings, even keeping their own homes, and on the other hand MPs are able to "flip" their homes to make a killing or get the taxpayer to pay £4,000 for a gardener."

They've all been coasting this one for years, obviously, and now it's been noticed.

I would not be surprised if there was some plan b shebang tucked away in some envelope to be opened upon special instruction 'just in case'.

Cameron just happened to be the ringmaster when the bubble burst.

They are all (the tories) bending over with their arses bared ready to take a whipping for all to see.

Must take em back a few years;-)

As for the rest of them, they're just doing it differently, minus the mock 'social justice' heroics bit.

'Sall pretty scummy though.

And now the revolting Mail and the loathsome Taxpayers (dodgers) Alliance want to press charges against these hideous MPs.

Who to support? It's like Leeds v Millwall*

I love these posts...but hasn't anyone got anything positive to say about at least 1 politician? There are some! OK, putting the Tories to one side...hasn't anyone got something good to say about an MP who hasn't got a 2nd home, hasn't been claiming excessive expenses etc..
Would be quite refreshing to hear something nice for a change..

You are talking crap anyway, Cameron's claims are limited to mortgage interest and utility bills on his second home...which is exactly what MP's should be claiming for...and nothing more.
