Miller Goes to Ground

Where’s Maria?

On Thursday she was a no show at the £75 a head Hendon Conservatives Gala Dinner and today she’s pulled out of public appearances:

And cancelled interviews:

Come on Maria, just come out and say sorry on camera. It could hardly make things worse…

    I think, the overwhelming majority of people, have seen this fraud for what it is, a crime. If you are innocent you do not have to apologise, nor do you receive a request to pay back 45k. That is not innocent, if you are innocent, you do not say sorry, nor do you back a penny, because your innocent, evidently Ms Miller is the opposite of innocent, I have not invented these things, these are the commissions findings. So we are incensed by this, however, we need to embrace the idea that she is not for going, David will not remove her, YOU, the voter have absolutely no say in this. I think, we need to accept, that we are ‘filthy plebs’ undeserving of a say. To add insult to injury, on this day IDS says he is going to get ‘tough’ on benefits cheats, I could cry.

        I can only assume his company sergeant did the really important work for him and just got him to sign the paperwork when he was in the Army? He really is totally out of touch, there is already an ongoing requirement for Job Seekers (another awful Americanism) to have an up to date CV and to keep verifiable records of jobs applied for (these are done via the DWP web site that logs the applications and then enables staff to review what has happened at any time an to withhold benefit if they are not satisfied that the job has been applied for) he shows himself to be the worse kind of officer failing to keep up to date and to advocate failed solutions that have no relevance to situation on the ground.

          What the DWP wants to do but most certainly do, is for every prospective employer to give the result of the interview and whether the applicant has got the job or has not, if not why not. IDS hasn’t got the guts (talk about a trained killer being a wuss) to apply rules equally. Sometime ago I went for a job to a very well known supermarket, they were going great guns then but seem to have hit a bit of a sticky wicket, what, what, I got a time for the interview and duly went, the first thing the woman said to me “the job doesn’t exist it was withdrawn 2 weeks ago do want still to go ahead with the interview?” I replied in the the affirmative as I had bothered to come down for the interview, but I said I would report the withdrawn job to the JobCentre, she don’t do that. I leave the rest to you lot.

      PAYE office prole says:

      They had plenty of occasion to honestly raise their salaries publicly without resorting to theft.
      There was no shortage of people willing to be MPs.
      if higher salaries attracted better candidates, they would still be chosen (for safe seats) by the political class not necessarily of virtue.

      Since the extras were hidden until the Torygraph published them, how could they be an incentive to aspiring MPs?
      If they were known to aspiring MPs, no honest applicant would want to go for a job knowing that they needed to commit fraud to access their full pay.

    Why does Calamity Miller actually NEED a second house in London?

    Her constuency is Basingstoke not the fuggin Outer Hebrides. There is a rail service that gets her into the City in an hour and 8 minutes.

    Lots of us peasants travel longer than that to get to work.

    I’m also baffled why the troughing cow needs not just the one house in London but actually BOTH of them? Didn’t I read the second one is in Wimblaydon? So no base in her constuency at all then?

    Well done Camoron keep supporting her full throttle. You know it makes sense…for UKIP.
