Two Thirds Say Standards Committee Should Be Abolished

69% of the public agree with Guido that MPs should not be allowed to sit on the committee that judges whether politicians are guilty of fiddling their expenses, according to a Survation poll for Breitbart London. 47% say Maria Miller makes them less likely to vote Tory in 2015, 55% say Dave has handled it badly and the same number say Miller is the worst expenses cheat since 2009. But you keep on fighting for her, Prime Minister…

    I very much doubt that she is the worst expenses cheat since 2009.

    Doesn’t Brown claim about quarter of a million quid for about 10 days ‘work’?

    Margaret Moran says:

    Maria’s going about this the wrong way. All she has to do is what I did: put on some clothes that make her look like a bag lady, turn up to court crying her eyes out, pay a rent-a-shrink to say she’s suffering from depression, and some gullible judge will let her off the hook, just in time for her to go down to the pub. Worked for me!!

    C.O.Jones says:

    Unfortunately they do not see it in this light. If you had to extrapolate the actual costs of an MP ie wage, expenses and then the subsidies of all kinds (bars, restaurants, security, infrastructure costs etc) then we have some of the highest hourly paid people in the country.

    Gordon Brown is a vile piece of shit says:

    This complaint in particular sums up what a truly grotesque and pathetic man he is and gives an insight into his mind:

    Mr Gordon Brown MP complained to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors’ Code of Practice about an article which reported that a press conference he had been due to give at the United Nations had been ‘cancelled after only one journalist turned up to hear him speak’. The complainant expressed concern about a claim that he had ‘stood in the background’ as ‘a message was played over a loudspeaker reminding the media that [he] was due to speak’, explaining that – owing to his speaking at another event which overran – he was not available for the press conference. The complainant also objected to an assertion in the online version of the article which stated that he was paid ‘handsomely’ for his speeches. The complainant explained that all money from his speeches and writings goes to the Office of Gordon and Sarah Brown to fund his and his wife’s charitable and public service work, including their disbursement programme of donations to individual charities, and that not a single penny goes to him personally.

    Ctesibius says:

    The solution to this is breathtakingly simple.

    MP’s and Peers have established rules for claiming expenses and attendance allowances, and their taxation treatment, which are much more streamlined and less onerous than those which apply for the rest of us. For example, why shouldn’t a TV licence be tax deductible?

    It is quite wrong that people like Guido are campaigning for MPs rules and standards to be tightened. Instead, I want to see the levels of allowances and tax breaks which apply to the rest of us relaxed so they are harmonised with MPs’ and Peers’ existing allowances and expenses.

    I think I should be able to claim a claim a flat rate attendance allowance of £150 or £300 each time I show up for work, and I’d like to put my telly tax on my tax return.

    in the real world says:

    If politicians can’t even be trusted to be honest about a basic
    thing like expenses, they don’t deserve our vote. If anyone in
    the real world is caught fiddling their expenses, they’re sacked
    and often prosecuted.

    Any committee overseeing expenses shouldn’t contain current or
    ex politicians,judges,lawyers,bankers,lords or anyone with a
    connection to any political party or serving MP’s.

    A sad death says:

    It’s a tragically young age to die. 25 is no age to go. And she was mother to two children, which makes it all the worse. But I do have to say that Bob Geldof’s statement made me cringe. Even at such a tragic event, he couldn’t help write a pretentious and ostentatious statement. Most people who’ve suffered a sudden loss would not think to write that their daughter was “the most bonkers of us all”. I’m not suggesting that he’s not grieving but that, like so many celebrities, he is incapable of maintaining a degree of normalcy in any context and has to give in to the urge to do something extrovert and attention seeking. A simple statement of grief would’ve sufficed, but he writes a statement that says “she was the most bonkers of us all” as though to remind us what a wacky, funny guy he is.

    Fishy says: “Britain is becoming a very ugly place.”

    That’s what happens with corrupt politicians.

    Westminster has become not only financially corrupt, but morally corrupt.

    You’re right that Miller is taking a hit for all (or, I’d say, most) of the rest.

    But that’s largely because of the way Miller and her reprehensible Spad behaved, browbeating the parliamentary commissioner, trying to intimidate the media by flagging up the minister’s role in Leveson-inspired legislation, then kissing it all off with such a contemptuous “apology”.

    Cameron, who promised to clean up Westminster, effectively sanctioned all the above, as did the standards committee. As did many of their colleagues.

    Many of those around during the previous expenses scandal are still there, and it should be remembered that most of them fought tooth and nail to prevent expense exposure.

    For that reason alone it doesn’t matter who the lightning rod is. Too many of them have been at it, and prepared to cover for others who attract scrutiny.

    Oliver Cromwell was a terrorist says:

    Granted, he was a wanker, a disaster for the nation, but there would not have been any bog-trotters like McGuinness stinking up Buck House any more than it already does if he was still around.

    IRA? He’s shit ‘em.

    Bob will be able to extend his 'career' off this says:

    What I don’t understand is the outpouring of mawkish sentimentality on Twatter and the like from people that didn’t know her, never met her, wouldn’t have known her if they saw her, apparently just because her father is a famous twat.

    Loads of people, hundreds and hundreds of thousands of them, die every day, and I didn’t know or care about them either.

    Why people don’t expend their emotional efforts on their nearest and dearest, there own friends and neighbours, their own parnts and children, instead of the junkie children of pompous wankers they have never met baffles me.

    Vlad the Loudhailer says:

    The answer is simple, all MPs, Peers et al who have claimed falsely for expenses have committed FRAUD. Having committed a criminal act they should be arrested and put on trial.
    The excuse that many have done it is not a defence. If the police don’t act then we are on the road to revolution. God help us all.

    Correct. I’m prepared to believe that there are one or two honourable men and women in the HoC but the bulk of them are carpet-bagging opportunists in the pay either of the unions or the banks, Brussels and/or Washington. We need a Cromwell, but I’ll settle for Farage. There is a lot of unrest in the country now, if we’re lucky we may see the stables cleaned out at the next GE.

    They only get to be “Really Senior Officers” by saying all the right things, at the right times, to the right people I.e. Mandarins and politicians. They do not get the job for going around banging table-tops and complaining about cuts in man-power. Indeed, it would be interesting to know how Brown got his way on the two large Targets that are being built, namely HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales. How many tens of thousands of Regulars did that cost the MoD?

    Sid Viscous says:

    Hope you’re right, Potemkin, but the best stables flusher was Hercules and it’ll take a lot more than Nigel to clear out this lot – they’ll fight like wolverines to hang on to all they have, changing the rules of everything if necessary, even GE I suspect to ensure survival.

    Nigel may have another accident too and hasn’t got a suitable Deputy/Politburo to fill the space.

    The best we can do is Vote UKIP and be ready with the rope and pitchforks when the scum start to kick back.

    Vote UKIP.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
