Troughing Tory Peer Plea Due

The second Tory peer charged with fiddling his expenses is due to enter his plea this morning at the Old Bailey. Paul White, the one time leader of Essex County Council said the claims for overnight stays in London, despite written evidence that he had travelled back to Essex, were in “good faith”. Like his fellow Tory Lord Taylor, Hanningfield  is expected to plead not guilty, so we will have to see what twelve honest men say about that…

UPDATE: Hanningfield was a no show, no plea entered. Trial in May at Southwark. Oink oink…

    Tacitus says:

    Isn’t it all rather sad that increasingly those whom we have supported and believed in over the years are increasingly being shown to have been feathering their own nests. As a Labour Party member it came as a matter of much unhappiness that members of my own party (and MPs at that) should have abused the system. I can only imagine the level of anger and distress those activists in the Tory party feel today about ojne of their own appearing in court.

    The sad part is that the ordinary ‘Joe’ or ‘Jill’ in both the Tories and Labour (and of course the Lib Dems too) give many hours of their time and their hard earned cash to support candidates. The least we can expect from them is honesty and appropriate behaviour.

    For the sake of the activists who worked so hard to get White elected, I hope he is found not guilty. But if the reverse happens, then it is important not to paint all activists with the same brush.

    If Hague commits UK forces to the region he will make himself even more unpopular than he already is.

    Engineer says:

    There comes a point when it possibly isn’t worth it. There need to be enough convictions to encourage some personal responsibility in the others, but not so many that the cost of all the investigations and trials becomes disproportionate.

    Probably a majority of MPs have sinned, some a little bit, some quite outrageously. It seems that Lords have been atit as well, don’t know how widespread the problem is in the upper house. If all the sinners were prosecuted, it could cost far more millions than they troughed. However, there must be sufficient deterrence effect from the investigations and prosecutions to concentrate their minds. They are supposed to be serving the taxpayers, not ripping them off for every penny.

    It’s not very often a ‘raw sewage’ drain fails and results in discharge onto the surface.

    Without facts to support your analysis I think my original argument stands – that essentially all the parties (including Labour) have a lot to answer for. But this should not detract that within each political grouping there are still many who are idealists, honest and truly believe tyhe philosophy within their organisation.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
