Labour Finally Twist Knife Into Miller

Labour have finally found someone beyond John Mann to go on the attack over Maria Miller. Pity that it’s only the perpetually useless Shadow Cabinet Office minister Chi Onwurah, but still:

“Letting Maria Miller off the hook speaks volumes about David Cameron’s leadership. His weakness and double standards on the issue of Maria Miller’s expenses are totally unacceptable and completely out of touch. He should not offer “warm support” to a cabinet minister criticised by a Parliamentary committee, but be making clear she should have cooperated fully with this inquiry. We had a contemptuous 32 second response from a cabinet minister followed by a pat on the back from the prime minister. It is yet another example of how Cameron only looks after his one of his own and always stands up for the wrong people. We must have the very highest standards in public office. There can be no going back to the bad old days of expenses.”

They’ve responded quicker to this than they did to the Budget. Better late than never.

      Labour hid the expenses scandal. They only wanted redacted receipts to be shown. Speaker Martin and Tony Blair did not even have receipts, they shredded them.

        They may not have receipts but surely records were kept of how much they claimed and were paid out from the public purse. Why do msm never press this point?

          No point, the majority of MP’s claimed well night the maximum allowed. ie within a couple of thou of the maximum. Many were within a couple of hundred £’s of the maximum allowed.

          This is the man who hired barristers at public expense to try to bury the MP’s expenses exposure. He failed and it cost us over £150,000.

          They did take a lead role for sure – no excuse for others to do the same. But, as you say, they are in a class of their own.

    I would just like to say after a thinking about it for months that Milliband was born a twat, he has lived the life of a twat and he will die a twat. And I have peer reviews to prove it.

      As Professor Emeritus in Twatological Studies at the London School of Twatishness, I wholly concur with your analysis. My twatty-stick graph shows that his trend for twatishness is in fact increasing. Miliband will soon be dangerously off the top of the scale of twats considered normal in the House of Twats.

    With the latest yougov poll for the SUN showing the Labour lead back to 6 points, it looks like the post budget bounce for the Tories has evaporated.

    Only a YES vote for Scottish independence in September can stop Miliband becoming PM in 2015.

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
