    Would it be in the public’s interest if the pranksters were prosecuted? They could always say they made a mistake I guess.

    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.

    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

    Only when Sky kept going and the other papers picked up on it did the BBC finally have to turn on a fellow Muzzie.

    Do you not realise, that even though you did it for free, Duncan NOW needs receipts for it before he can claim £3000 back for “extensive gardening essential and wholly necessary for my work as an MP” because of Cameron’s new rules.

    You are guilty of the criminal act of “not making it easy for an arsehole to steal from the public”, and should be charged, prosecuted and hanged. Your only possible defence is “I am an MP and was working within the rules”

    I have at last received a reply from my MP regarding UN Electoral Oversight;

    ‘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’

    Any co-conspirators with a spare 5 minutes, please request assistance from MEPs in ensuring Election results reflect the findings of the Court of Public Opinion, and post any responses

    But he will be back, the “stepping down” is only…

    ……. pending an inquiry into claims about his expenses made in the Daily Telegraph newspaper.

    Standards chief Sir Philip Mawer has been asked to investigate whether the paper’s claims he took subsidised rent broke the ministerial code.

    NO, NO, NO

    The subsidised rent is f**k all to do with it and no doubt he will be found not to have broken the code.

    The issue is whether he should have been reclaiming the £100 per week home in his consituency (and harts off for getting a good deal on the rent) or the £23 grand a year palace in London.

    Inspector Knacker says:

    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?

    All education from you erudite bloggers welcome.

    Something going on with Malik.

    Having seen his performances this morning, I am shocked he has stepped down.

    Sadly, I don’t believe there is any moral value in their motives any more and muse:

    1) Is there a ton of other sh!t on him which hasn’t been released?
    2) The subsidised rent is more of a ruse – I believe he’d be in deeper water for offering the money to local causes – bribing the electorate?
    3) Diversion tactics for some other minister?
    4) Is he going to drag the race card out now?

    In 2006 Harry Cohen told the Waltham Forest Guardian: “I see the allowance as an adjunct of my salary. Use it or lose it, and I use it. I believe it’s mine.”

    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.

    It seems some Conservative MPs resisted the change because they are embarassed by how little they receive for prostituting their name for example to to skuzz ball debt consolidaters and subprime mortgage originators.

    One case being Francis Maude MP for Horsham, Conservative, Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office and Shadow Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster who was paid a pitifully small amount for being Chairman of ‘Prestbury Financial Ltd’ before it went bust this spring.

    Another case is Eric Pickles Conservative MP for Brentwood & Ongar and Chairman of the Conservative Party who is invlved still with a similar skuzz ball outfits called ‘Financial Limited’ and ‘Spencer Hayes Mortgage Services Limited’.

    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.

    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.

    The mayor of Middlesbrough , Ray Mallon has written to the Metroplitan Police Commissioner, asking him to look in to the possibility of fraud with regard to MPs expenses. He is an ex-police office, morning all, and quoted the act itself and he seems to think there are grounds for possible prosecution. I mean that’s all well and good, but I’ve told you before, these are MPs!

    He also said that there is only one person, not withstanding peoples own rules even, that could not be prosecuted for a crime. I’ll leave you all to guess who that is.

    I live in hope(yes just outside Essex) that measures are now in place for them to be strung up. Light blue touch paper and retire, yummy!

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

    His second home is in Wandstead, while he has a gaff in Colchester and also on a nearby caravan site.

    According to the ever reliable Wikipedia, Cohen has received £104,701 over the previous five years under the Additional Costs Allowance for his Wanstead home based upon the representation that this was his second home. The home that Cohen represented as his primary home was a single-bedroom house in Colchester and nearby caravan site, despite the fact that Cohen spends very little time at that location and uses it only as a holiday home.

    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.

    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.

    I confirm that I have just now paid £100.00 to the Tax Payers Alliance for the private prosecution of criminal MPs.

    Why tax payers should have to fund the CPS through their taxes and pay again to do its job for it, is another matter.

    Yep. And while they were putting all this fascist apparatus in place (ID cards, abolitionof double jeopardy, 42 day detention without charge etc…) they are making the same mistake they made with Scotland.

    I know, the Labour fuckwits thought to themselves, lets give more power to Scotland. their own little pretendy parliament. Another tier of administartion for worthless fuckwits. 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.

    For this reason alone they should hang. But I’ll settle for complete political annihilation.

    Everybody agrees MPs from outside London need somewhere to stay whilst attending to Parliamentry and other duties. The system has been that effectively the taxpayers assist the purchase of a second home. 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.
