        Westminster Ode, sung to the tune of the Strawbs – Part of the Union

        Now I’m a Westminster man
        Amazed at what I am
        I say what I think, that Inland Revenue stinks
        Yes I’m a Westminster man

        When we meet in Westminster Great Hall
        I’ll be voting with them all
        With a hell of a shout, it’s “Bail our Banking Brothers out!”
        And the rise of the factory’s fall

        Oh, you don’t get me, I’m a Parliamentarian
        You don’t get me, I’m a Parliamentarian
        You don’t get me, I’m a Parliamentarian
        Huge pension till I die
        Huge pension till I die

        Westminster has made me wise
        To the lies of the Telegraph spies
        And I don’t get fooled by the Parliamentary rules
        ’cause I always read between the lines

        And I always get my way
        As I vote for my Brothers higher pay
        When I show my MP card to the Scotland Yard
        This is what I say:

        Oh, oh, you don’t get me, I’m a Parliamentarian
        You don’t get me, I’m a Parliamentarian
        You don’t get me, I’m a Parliamentarian
        Huge pension till I die
        Huge pension till I die

        Before Westminster did appear
        My life was half as clear
        Now I’ve got the power, expenses to devour
        Each and every day of the year

        So though I’m a Parliamentary man
        I avoid Revenue’s plan, claim all the expenses that I can
        And though I’m not hard, the sight of my MP card
        Makes me some kind of superman

        Oh, oh, oh, you don’t get me, I’m a Parliamentarian
        You don’t get me, I’m a Parliamentarian
        You don’t get me, I’m a Parliamentarian
        Huge pension till I die
        Huge pension till I die

        You don’t get me, I’m a Parliamentarian
        You don’t get me, I’m a Parliamentarian
        You don’t get me, I’m a Parliamentarian
        Huge pension till I die
        Huge pension till I die

        Good riddance to bad rubbish.

        HOWEVER

        Please Please PLEASE dont be fooled by the media and especially the angle taken on this by the BBC.

        It is not our politicians that are the main problem here.

        IT IS THE SYSTEM itself.

        WHO devised it?
        WHO drafted it?
        WHO approved it?
        WHO benefited most from corrupting and therefore compromising our politicians?

        We currently have an ever increasing amount of our citizenry who have been made to feel like criminals, simply for using a system that THE SYSTEM itself has created.

        For example

        Anyone on working or family tax credits. Because it you truly do understand the system you are doing better then my accountant.

        Anyone on benefits who does any undeclared paid work on the side. Which is a clear majority, otherwise they would virtually starve.

        Any one who is self-employed or runs their own company. Because if you completely understand the tax and employment law system, you are again doing better then my accountant. Who is not at all cheap, or inexperienced.

        We have all been corrupted in one way or another, and to a greater or lesser extent. We are therefore virtually ALL potential criminals, or worried to hell, that we might be unintentionally being a criminal.

        THIS NORMALLY GO’S BY THE NAME OF AUTHORITARIAN SOCIALISM, otherwise known as CORPORATISM, although MARXIST COMMUNISM or NAZISM are perfectly acceptable descriptions.

        PLEASE concentrate your efforts on THE SYSTEM not individual witch-hunts against individual MP’s. Doing so is going to turn out to be extremely COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE.

      Speaking of anything but… and gardening, it is worth checking out this in the Indy:

      http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/commentators/ann-widdecombe-who-else-was-going-to-cut-my-lawn-the-cat-1685192.html

      The self-serving, blinkered actions and subsequent words of pretty much all from Labour had already consigned them the the compost heap of history in my eyes long ago.

      And already, even before this, Mr. Duncan’s HIGNFY effort has already raised a few flags on his party and leader’s competencies.

      But Ms. Widdecombe, another alumnus of that fine show, has now ensured that, come June 4 and the GE, three votes will be going anywhere but the Conservatives as well.

      Maybe ‘they will’ soon be ‘getting it’.

    The MPs bought the apartment overlooking the Thames in 2002 and have been claiming close to the maximum allowance since then. Records show that in some months they also both tried to claim back the full amount of council tax on the property.

    Mrs Keen is a junior health minister. Nicknamed “Mr and Mrs Expenses” by the press prior to The Daily Telegraph’s investigation, the two MPs have been married since 1980 and represent neighbouring constituencies.

      ‘The UN no longer provides an Election Monitoring service, concentrating instead on offering Electoral Assistance. The Council of Europe and the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe are among the international organisations which do offer election monitoring. However, there are too many elections in any given year for them all to be observed and it has to make a choice about what elections it observes, usually at the request of the host government.

      In the UK the Electoral Commission, since 2006, has been able to accredit observers internally. It remains for the Commission to decide who to accredit, and who to invite to observe local, General and European elections in the UK’

    Right – genuine question for you people….

    We keep hearing that, if it carries on people will be driven into the arms of the BNP, UKIP etc. the people discussing it in the meedya say things like “none of us want the BNP in” ” we dont want this mess to carry on else the BNP, UKIP etc will be voted in” ” We need to concentrate on the issues and sort things out, else people will turn to the BNP, UKIP etc”

    Now, I do not want the BNP in – and I did not want Labour in BUT, because of this thing called DEMOCRACY, people can vote for who they like. So, my question is “who the fuck is going to vote in the BNP, UKIP etc, except for the people of this country?”

    That is how democracy works. Or is the English version of this – “you may vote for Labour, Conservative, Libdem (only joking on that one), Green erm, thats it”

    If they do not want people to vote for the BNP, UKIP etc, then I humbly suggest they get their fucking acts together and make THEMSELVES electable instead of griping that they do not want the minority/nasty parties to get into power.

    I repeat – 1 person 1 vote = you get who wins the election.

    I want the media to stop annoying me by telling me that no one wants the monority parties in when, if they win elections, clearly people do want them in. Or are the English too stupid to be given a vote unless they vote for the 2 main parties?

      The media are as much a part of the “Establishment” as the “mainstream” (so-called) political parties. They rely on each other to stay in power.

      The polling organisations also present a false and deliberately misleading picture when they publish political polls, as they never include non-voters in the numbers as this would show that ALL parties are now minority parties. What with the turnout likely to be sub 45% that means that non-voters are actually the single most powerful political block in British politics. This group has more than DOUBLE the support of the biggest mainstream party. Most of them will not vote, because they do not support any of the mainstream parties and do not see the point of voting for anyone else as they FALSELY are (mis)lead to believe that there are not the numbers available to change the balance of power in this country.

      All three (the media, the “mainstream” parties and the pollsters) all have a vested interest in lying to the public and keeping them in the dark about this.

      The last thing the media wants is to let those good and thinking people KNOW that they have the power in this country and they COULD SACK ALMOST EVERY SITTING MP IF THEY CHOSE TO. The numbers ARE there. Hell there are more than double the numbers.

    He is still trying to defend himself:

    http://www.guardian-series.co.uk/news/rbnews/4371295.LEYTON_WANSTEAD__MP_defends_expenses_claim/

    The Telegraph has reported that, since the 2004-5 parliamentary year, Mr Cohen has used his second home allowance to charge the taxpayer:

    – £3,031 for a granite kitchen work surface

    – £5,232 for furniture, bedding and decoration materials including paint and varnish.

    – £1,222 for new blinds.

    – £500 for repainting the front of his house.

    – £13.99 for an “old-fashioned” enamel door sign.

    – £25 for a sheepskin IKEA rug.

    – £13 for a garlic press and tin opener.

    – £150 for a vase.

    – £4.25 for baby wipes.

    – £8.75 for men’s shaving oil.

    – £16.95 for a mini deep fat fryer.

    – £4.50 for an “easy slice pineapple set”.

    – £649.99 for a cooker.

    – £3,131.37 on plastering works.

    In November 2005, the Telegraph reports, Mr Cohen sold the renovated home for £249,995 and then bought a new house in Woodcote Road, Wanstead, for £375,000.

    He then claimed £11,250 for stamp duty, £250 in solicitor’s fees and £235 for a buyer’s report on the old house.

    The Telegraph also says he claims back £656 a month in mortgage interest payments. He is already being investigated by the Parliamentary Watchdog over allegations that he broke expenses rules.

    Mr Cohen, who has an annual salary of more than £64,000, has apparently told the newspaper he will pay back for the toiletries.

      Lets just get this straight – he rents both his house and his offices from the same guy.

      He pays him £100 a week out of his own pocket for the house and £xx from the taxpayer for the office.

      So is he ( or rather we ) paying more than the commercial rate for the offices so that he can live cheaply in that house ?

      Is that about the size of it ?

      This guy is Minister For Justice – let him see the inside of a prison for a couple of years.

      Yes thought so, just quickly googled Shahid Malik, MPACUK – Muslim Discussion Forum has a number of posts from his Brothers and Sisters from Dewsbury who see Malik as a collaborator e.g.

      “this is what happens iwhen a muslim gets into any high position.. when a jew gets in they will try to serve their community best.. or a hindu or sikh.. but a muslim when ever they get into high position they like to look down all other muslims and start to compromise and be friendly with the kuffar.”

      As I said he was probably worried about accepting the Kufar money as it might be seen that he was bought and paid for by the Blair and later Brown Crusaders. Easier to say he wouldn’t take a salary and make up the difference with the expenses he was able to claim.

But don’t worry, Scotland is Labour territoary. They’ll never vote Tory. We’ve spent the past generation poisoning the minds of everybody in Scotland. That way, even if England goes Tory w’ll always have heaps of safe jobs in Scotland. A whole mini-country to practice our fuckwittery Uber-Alles. A thousand year Scottish-Labour Reich.

    And in less than 10 years, through the most egregious fuckwittery imaginable, they lost Scotland to a bunch of sour-faced nats.

    Same with all this ID card, abolition of double-jeopardy nonsense. Only now is it beginning to dawn on the fucking imbeciles the weapons that they’ve put into the hands of their political enemies. Because, for sure, Nick Griffin will be itching to repay the complement to Jack Straw after being tried for the same jumped-up ‘hate-crime’ allegations.

    Double jeopardy was conceived to make sure that nobody would be tied up in court endlessly on the same charges as a means of keeping political nuisances out of circulation. It has been fundamental to our freedom since Magana Carta and most of the western world and this bunch of fucking evil bastards abolished it.

When that MP decides to cease “serving the nation” they receive a handsome pension,but they are allowed to retain ownership of said property,in effect a very nice windfall on top. Nowhere have i seen any mention of this property being returned to the taxpayer,less any personal investment made by said MP. After all,once they cease to be “our representative”they have no need for a second home.
