Quote of the Day

Too little, too late from Maria Miller:

“The last 16 months have been difficult. As you know, I have been working hard for Basingstoke and also doing my job as a Cabinet minister.

During this time, I have been subject to an intense Parliamentary inquiry looking at extensive personal details of my family life, as a result of allegations made by a Labour MP.

That committee has now published its report and I have accepted their findings in full.

I have unreservedly apologised for the way I handled and approached the inquiry.

And I am pleased that the committee has fully dismissed all of the allegations made against me.

Separately, I have already apologised and repaid an over-claim of my expenses, having myself drawn the committee’s attention to the matter immediately I was aware of it.

I have always sought to do the best job that I can in representing the people of Basingstoke in Westminster.

I am devastated that this has happened, and that I have let you down.

I can only hope that over time the focus will once again by on Basingstoke.”

    Let’s draw a line under it and focus on… err… Basingstoke!

    Des Aster says:

    Nah I think we should focus on the £40,000 she got out of paying.

    Some say it’s a witch hunt…but I don’t think that’s right….try it with a “c”

    A taxpayer who does not live in Basingstoke says:

    Who is this creep? She stole money from me, not just the people of Basingstoke.

    Even for here, that’s a disgusting thing to say!

    PS But I’m happy as a pig shit with all your money that I got away with.

    Morgan's Organ says:

    I think she’s just made things worse. I say again she’s trying every trick in the book to stay into the Easter recess during which she thinks things will quieten down. That must not happen.

    Apology not accepted. Do the decent thing and resign,then repay the full £45,000 that you EMBEZZLED.

    Get a grip, there are insults and there is sarcasm, but that sort of comment reflects badly on you more than her!

    Lets go goosestepping with the Daily Heil says:

    If she was a normal member of the public doing this on a benefits fiddle she’d be swinging from her shoelaces in a prison cell. I fail to see why an MP should be any different.

  15. 15

    and the cost of the investigation

    Millertime says:

    Devastated! She’s devastated!

    Seriously. Devastation is what happens after a tsunami or an earthquake, not after you fiddle tax payers out of money and then live in denial about it. She should resign.

    No disagreement that she’s on the fiddle, should be sacked and should be up in front of the beak – but hoping she tops herself is going too far!

    thostids says:

    One is left with conclusion that the present Government knows more about the future than they let on. Whereas Major went out and, against all the odds, won “his” General Election, it was universally agreed that if he had had any sense it was actually the Election to lose. Cameron is pulling out all the stops to ensure a complete disaster in the General Election. At least there won’t be a traitor’s firing squad for Cameron when he washes up with Clegg looking for a job in Brussels. In truth can he say that when he made his Cast Iron promise of an in/out Referendum when he was re-elected, he knew that there was no such prospect. Mrs Miller should look upon herself as the Conservative Party’s visit to Dignitas. Cameron and Clegg will merely assert that they were concerned relatives assisting a terminally-sick parent to end it all……

    Seems odd that MPs are not link lining up to speak out – time for another newspaper to start digging deeper before next election

    Norman Normal says:

    Most of the investigation focused on the domicile parents allegations made by the labour MP which were found to be entirely false. So why repay costs when she was mostly cleared. The money issue was due to fluctuating interest rates, hardly deliberate.
    Me thinks there are some here who should take their medication and a deep breath and read the report.

    Another Headshrinker says:

    Bollocks, she is only devastated that she got caught! The triughing piggy bitch! She should resign as an MP and pay back the money, but she won’t because she is troughing piggy! She was cleared of nothing, it was only decided how much she should pay back!

    Seeing how contrite our Maria is, I’m sure she’ll resign this evening.

    It took me longer to read that statement than her official apology to the Commons lasted.

    Maria the Moron says:

    What a nasty piece of work she is! She thinks she can delude the electorate with her bullshit! She is CRAP at her job & is only staying to keep her snout in trough. She is so unconfident at what does she surrounds herself with devious morons. She is dragging the party down & the shit will stick to Cameron and this will be reflected not only in polls but at the elections.

    Miller needs to take a good look at herself, get some self respect & resign!

    Do shut up, you dick

    Llareggub says:

    You’re expecting a bit much there. She said she was sorry, not penitent. Anybody who’s taken the train that saying the S word excuses everything:

    “We’re sorry that you’ll be late to work, and have to stand for Good knows how long on a windswept platform in a winter storm, waiting for a train that will almost certainly run through the station, but just not stop. However, we haven’t the slightest intention of doing Jack shit about it, least of all return your money.”

    Please enlighten me. What exactly was the point of this exercise? To insult me so devastatingly that I’d be inclined to vote for the opposition? Or just to write insults to people you don’t know?

    A sincere thanks from the plebetariat that you have deigned to
    “….accept the committe s findings in full ” Milch Cow.

    Perhaps you could now enclose with your resignation letter a cheque for at least the ithe 45 k dubiously obtained .

    (we ll gloss over the taxpayer aided profit if circa 500k you stand to make on the house appreciation …. on which we all in our collective ignorance assume you will be paying capital gains tax when you sell ??– or is that your main residence these days … we find it sooo hard to keep up little peopke that we are )

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
