      I appreciate your point Billy, but after the last shower of shite [Leiber] who never apologised because, apparently they never did anything wrong I think he may be over the worst.
      To be honest Billy, I would prefer Huhne to be publically disembowelled, as he truly is a nasty piece of work.
      Hope you’re OK by the way.

        Hiya Rats.

        Yeah i am ok, hope you are?

        On Fox and labour

        I did expect this government to be a improvement in all areas on labour , standards as well, When David Laws resigned when those allegations come out i appluaded it (Tho what the CPS are doing about no-one knows), But since then we have seen Hunt and now Fox abuse the office of which they are in charge.

        Seems that if one side do it, its OK for the others too? Seems like the expenses scandal all over again.

        When will these f**kers understand that they are elected by the people to do a job for the people – not for their mates or for financial advantage.

        Election now.

            Could not agree more Gerrymandering. It is sickening to see the blind Politically biased behaviour in the House. Every Tory defending him every Labour speaker attacking him. Worse is the play ground behaviour where they say you were worse than we are, or you started it.
            The fact is that they are, with few exceptions, a complete bunch of tossers. They use Party Politics to defend themselves because Tory and Labour trolls will forever condone their own Party when it is seen that the Party rather than the individual is under attack.
            While people on here argue over Bliar and Brown and Cameron and Huhne and Fox etc. etc. They are ALL laughing their way through the ‘storm’.
            They are their own judges and Jury. They work to their own rules. None of the will ever do anything to spoil that. Cameron could, if he wanted, blow Bliar right out of the water and into the Hague, he has the power and the information is there. Will he? Never.
            They are laughing at us.

      Lobbying costs money.

      Any lobbying adds to the bottom line that the taxpayer eventually has to pay.

      Its time to stop this wasteful practice.

      If companies cannot sell their goods and services without lobbying, then they do not have a good product.

      If purchasers of goods and services cannot identify the best value for money without lobbyists, then they are not doing their job.

        I Remember You Hoo says:

        In a free market economy, except for mass popular campaigns, lobbying politicians would be useless.
        However we do not have free market capitalism, we have a mixture of crony capitalism, corporatism, private monopoly service providers and rigged markets. In such environments lobbying is essentially about self enrichment for all parties, against the public interest.
        Like a closed shop is essential for corrupt union power, rigged markets are essential to hide large scale theft from taxpayers and grossly distorted market prices.
        That’s why the cosy relationship thrives and consumers are repeatedly screwed.

    It is now clear that not one MP is fit for purpose.

    A plauge on all houses and parties, This parliament no longer has my support.

    I also think the media and bloggers need to look at themselves and the way this has been reported, over the last 24 hours the focus has switched from the dodgy advisor and inappropete meetings to slurs and smears with a touch of innuendo over his sexuallity, Does this mean that Homosexuals have to held to different standard to hetrosexuals or is it just a bit of gay bashing?

      The issue is more about lying and hypocrisy than homosexuality. As Paddy Pantsdown proved, a politicians credibility can be preserved or improved if he admits the truth early. Fox’s problem is he has a track record of opposing gay legislation (hypocrisy) and is lying (at least by omission) over his relationship with Werritty. I would have no problem if he came clean.

I’ve not called for Fox to go. I think he will though for the simple reason that he has become an object of ridicule, and no-one really survives that.

        More to the point is the relationship between this dodgy businessman Boulter and the Labour Party. How much did he give them and what did he expect in return?

        On the face of it this looks like payment for a smear campaign by Labour in collaboration with the Guardian/BBC axis. Don’t forget that Boulter is involved in court case where £30,000,000 is at stake. Fox and Werrity are lined up to give evidence against Boulter so any mud that sticks to the pair of them could damage their credibilty as witnesses. Labour would do it just to create mischief for the government but they’ll always accept a bung as a bonus.

        Now Boulter’s relationship with Labour and the bung he gave them have been made public their fox (pardon the pun) appears to have been well and truly shot.

      Unless anything further comes out regardin g this or the report from Cabinet/Permanent Secretray is detrimental(unlikely as these reports tend to be ambiguous leaving it to the sitting PM decision) then I judge that by guaging the response of the Tory backbenches Fox is safe and secure in his job and Cameron will not want to cut him loose as a possible focal point for the right wing of the Tory Party on the backbenches

      The faux-outrage of Labour can be largely dismissed as opportunism and won’t affect Fox’s position.Likewise unless the media can come up with much better than they have or can locate the so-called “smoking bullet”(if there is one)then ditto

        what about the genuine outrage felt by everybody else for fucks sake?

        so long as he has the support of his fellow MP’s it’s all hunky dory is it?

        more of the same shit, this time it’s Tories giving their own politicians a free pass to (at the very least) display incredibly poor judgement whilst in one of the most powerful ministerial jobs there is; the last person you want a hint of impropriety about it is the Defence secretary and yet all too many people here and elsewhere seem to want to do is divert attention away from this incompetent by banging on about NuLabours many and varied fuck ups. As fun as that might be it doesn’t excuse this prick from his many and varied misdeeds.

        If (as Guido suggests) the Guardian does have something fatal lined up all this bluster from the Tory front and back benches will totally blow up in their faces, leaving them all tainted. Cheering support of the kind he was given during defence questions is not a good look if he’s out of a job by the weekend.

    yet stone the crows, out down from his Holy than thou perch should come Mr Honest, Chris Bryant, a man who has dealt with his own many witch Hunts, either over his underpants, outing as being gay, flipping his houses expenses scandal which the tax payer funded or hacking….a so called man you thought would be a bit more humble when seeing another person going through such stuff…….
