Is your M.P. on this list of shame?

M.P.'s feeding at the Trough of Our Money - Time to call the slaughter man?

The following is taken from Hansard, which maintains the official record of Parliamentary business, dated the 18th May 2007.

The item under debate is the Freedom of Information (Amendment) Bill.

Mr. Winnick:
Does the hon. Gentleman agree that although, of course, the
confidentiality of correspondence is essential—if mine were released
without authorisation I would hardly be reluctant to raise it with Mr.
Speaker to defend the honour and privilege that I have as a Member of
Parliament—this Bill is about concealing our expenses? That is the
essence of the Bill.
Norman Baker rose—
Madam Deputy Speaker:
Order. I have already said this morning that we must focus all our
remarks and attention on the amendments under discussion. The point
made by the hon. Member for Walsall, North was widening the debate.

The full Parliamentary exchange of what we regard as the “MPs Expenses Concealment (Amendment) Bill” may be read here .

If your Member of Parliament is on this list of shame, why not use the links on the write and ask him what it is they do not wish you to know.? Only the British National Party knows how to clean up the pig sty and remove the creatures from their feeding. For an interesting article on how the M.P.'s abuse the system, check out the B.NP. news section here.

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear.

My MP didn't even bother to turn up. To me that is the same as voting for it seeing as it got through. I hope she is punished at the ballot box.

Top post again GA.
Where have all the blog comments gone since the council elections?
I only see blog keepers and a few die hard BNPers posting.
Is apathy the new religion?

As far as I am concerned the only MP's who opposed the bill are those few decent men , from all parties , who actually voted against it and attempted to speak against it in the debate but were prevented from doing so due to another stitch up arranged between the crooks . Given the fact that most of our laws are now handed down to us by Europe I think we could surely cut the number of British MP's by about seventyfive percent . And they have the cheek to try to tell us they are so very busy . There is no limit to their shameless corruption but as the British electoral sheep continue to vote them into power , why should they care ?.

They are beyond the pale.

Take a look at this page in 'Times Online'

It seems the chap behind the bill has MS and has already claimed a quad bike on his parliamentary expenses.

Could it be he's planning for the day when he'll need to acquire some "green, green grass" from the same expenses account.
