Cable and Munt Face Inquiry Over Clegg Plot Polls

A spokesperson for the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner has confirmed that they have launched an investigation into whether Vince Cable broke Commons rules by failing to declare the Oakeshott poll in his constituency. The BBC reports that an inquiry has also begun looking at whether Tessa Munt, Cable’s PPS, should have declared a poll by Oakeshott in her own constituency as a gift in her register of interests. Won’t be an easy one for either of them to explain…

    Cable and the Munter will discover, just like General Fromm, all plotters eventually get hunted down and face justice.

      Boko Haram meets Hamas. Spiffing do, what. They won’t need goal-line technology as much as a wholesale undertaker. They could share schoolgirl cheer-leaders, if there are any left, that is.

    Like this appears to be dying a death…

    Bonar Law says:

    No, not “a spokesperson” for the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner. You mean, “a spokesman” – the grammatically correct generic term. “Spokesperson” is achingly right-on and politically correct. Something we expect from Labour and the LibDrems, not from you.
