        Such a shame…

        I like Liam Fox, but his actions here are inexcusable for a man in his position and actually border on utter stupidity. When in public life, one should always keep one’s catamite at arms length.

        So, what do we reckon – gone by next Friday?

            From the stories going around it seems Fox and his wife have separate life. We should need to know whether his marriage is real?

            We must be careful about jumping to conclusions. I understand that in conservative circles it is traditional for an older, married man to take a young impressionable and academically average Edinburgh University graduate under his wing and help him on his way. These arrangements are, of course, entirely innocent and you should be ashamed of yourselves for your filthy minds.

However, claiming Fox is anything but a self regarding poseur and fraud is a bit of a stretch. Other than moan a little about our absorbtion into the fascist EU superstate, what has he actually done to prevent it? From where I see it, precious little.

    Quite understandably the Labour Party are milking this for all it is worth, but my feeling is that, party advantage aside, none of the politicians think this is a serious matter, since it is part of normal behaviour.

    Not in respect of Fox, just consider as a generality.

    MP has boyfriend/mistress/ nubile slavic spy who he allows to cash in on his influence and generally feather their nests at taxpayers expense, while setting up dodgy deals with wealthy unsavoury third parties to their, rather than the taxpayer’s advantage.

    One metric [good, eh?] is the HWE.

    The HME [Housing Worth Escalator] is the ratio of the worth of their present house compared to the hovel they had when they started up the greasy slope.

    Accepted figures:

    5. Total failure- cannon fodder- dick head too interested in constituents.
    10. ‘Honest’ plodder not really up to the cut and thrust of troughing.
    15. Shows promise but needs to ditch the remaining vestiges of decency.
    200. Epic performance, reached only by a few.
