The Fraudsters' Parliament - The Sequel! (Bribes Optional!) 63



Life after the Conway Scandal and it's aftermath!

Have the politicians learned anything?

Let's check the papers!

Ho Hum!

A number of those involved in the Atlantic Bridge Tax Dodging 'Educational' Charity (yes! The one that had its 'charitable status' withdrawn by the Charity Commission!) are NOW to be found sitting around the Tory dominated  Cabinet table at the head of our particular banana republic!

Only today yet ANOTHER Tory politician was found to be on the payroll of an 'interested party' who paid him ALMOST the same as his parliamentary salary as a 'consultant'!

Yes! I know it looks, ..... to me and you, .........  like a bribe to ask the 'right' questions! But we are merely full taxpaying citizen voters, not privy to the heady and somewhat strange view of 'political ethics' that predominate in Westmidden-Upon-The-Fiddle and the neighbouring hamlet of Much Fiddling-Beneath-The-Ermine!

By the bye!

The Deputy Speaker of the House of Westmidden-Upon-The-Fiddle is currently facing several charges of rape and sexual assault!!!!!!

Hands up all those thinking .....'We DO appear to be living in a banana republic!'!!!!!!!!

Fraudsters' Parliament (and its sucessor) 61

I have been reading 'How to be an MP' by Paul Flynn on my Kindle. It gives some insight to the workings of parliament which are not normally seen by the 'sheeple' or , as he calls us, ... 'Votingham'!

Did ANY taxpaying citizen voter know that we pay (or at least-HAVE paid!) for the upkeep of a rifle range 'deep in the bowels' of Westminster? At the moment I am trying to find out more about this 'necessary' expenditure in these times of 'austerity'!

It may be that there is NO LONGER such a 'facility' but finding information about it is proving less than easy. The nearest I have come is checking out a speech a while back in which Nick Clegg rails at parliament having a rifle range but not  a  Nursery!  I was able to find a mini discussion on a LibDem blog in which someone purpoting to be a civil servant in Westminster had used the range!

Could it be that  ....... since the clampdown on expenses frauds ...... MPs are running 'inservice courses' on bank robbery?:-)

I have just finished reading the chapter on 'Final Steps - How to be Ennobled'

I really liked the first line;-

'The House of Lords is the ideal rest home for the tired, disillusioned or clapped out.'

Personally, I would have added 'VERY expensive taxpayer funded' between 'ideal' and 'rest'!
But you can just call me 'picky'!

The Fraudsters' Parliament (and its successor)! No 60!

Rather a bit of a BIG fuss over non payment of taxes by individuals at the moment! Everyone in any position of power is making sure that absolutely NO-ONE asks how many politicians are at this!!!!

It has been a good day to bury bad news! Apparently  a plan for minsiters to publish THEIR tax returns has been kicked into the long grass.   Any ideas why! ....... or should the question be ....'Anyone any idea HOW many politicians have been at this tax avoidance lark and doing their best to make sure it goes un-noticed? Bit like the early stages of the expenses frauds in the last Fraudsters' Parliament ............ I would humbly suggest!

The Fraudsters' Parliament - 59!

I am back in business! Thanks to the A and E team in Cornwall who confirmed the detached retina in my left eye back in July and the surgical team at Arrowe Park Hospital on the Wirral, who drilled a number of holes into my eye, inserted the pincers and the laser and welded the retina back in place!
Thanks also to my daughter, Juliet, who drove me to the hospital in Cornwall and then continued on a seven hour drive back to the Wirral! Thanks also to her fiance, Neil! Sorry I spoiled the engagement week!

Thanks especially to my wife, Tina, who has looked after me and nursed me back to health ....... again!

Now.... where have that shower in The Fraudsters' Parliament been hiding in my absence, .... what have they been up to ..... and are the judicial representatives in this country still playing the Three Wise Monkeys and seeing no fraud, hearing about no fraud and speaking about no fraud in relation to MPs?

Check out thiis article in The Guardian from a while ago .......:

And those rogues really thought that it would all blow over!

The Fraudsters' Parliament! - 58

Check out the link below for the latest 'wheeze' by MPs to part the taxpaying citizen voter in the UK from their hard earned money!

It's easy really!

Invent a rule which states that if a debate lasts longer than 1.00a.m. any MP, (including those with second homes nearby!) any MP gets £130+ !!

Then toddle off the the taxpaying citizen subsided bar and get drunk!

The stagger back to the House of Cons as late as possible ensuring that the debate is delayed as long as possible!

(Optional) Slur speech and any questions to drag out the debate as long as possible! (Don't want the hardworking taxpaying citizen voter to spot the con, do we? HIC!)

Trouser the proceeds!

The Sheeple will never spot it!

WRONG!

The Fraudsters' Parliament? - 57

They are at it again!!!!!!!

Trying to rubbish IPSA!

Trying to claim 'it is all too too much!!!'

Trying to get their snouts back in the trough while the taxpaying citizen voters of the UK have to tighten their belts and endure a reduction in services!

Back to the old tagline for the Fraudsters' Parliament:-

'Citizens Burn While MPs Fiddle!'

UK MPs are trying once again to get their noses in the trough and fiddletaxpayers' monies.

The Fraudsters' Parliament? - 56

Those nice folks in New Zealand continue to have problems with their MPs and one or two dubious expenses! - It's nice, in a way, to know that it is not JUST our lot who can't be trusted! The difference is that, in New Zealand, at least one politician is trying to do something about it! Surprise! Surprise! He is having problems from other politicians! One of the politicians in the New Zealand parliament had, according to one comment left for the article, been in the UK parliament for two years!!! - If this is true ........ enough said!!

I picked up this article on the http://www.3news.co.nz/ website. As usual, I felt the need to leave a comment!

Meanwhile....................... back at the ranch in the UK..................... one of those from the Fraudsters' Parliament is trying to sue The Telegraph for defamation! ....... Wait for it! ..... he is claiming that, because of  a Telegraph story concerning  the MPs' fiddles.... OOOPs!.... I mean the MPs' expenses story...., his 'reputation' has been;-

'..gravely injured, and that he has been embarrassed and upset, and been brought into public scandal, odium and contempt.'

Public scandal!.................  Odium! ............................. Contempt!.......................

Should not, then, ever single MP in The Fraudsters' Parliament be suing at least 3-400 other MPs in that once august body for their actions since said actions have led to  .....Public scandal!................. Odium! ............................. Contempt!.......................?

And what about that wicked individual (whoever he is!) who has suggested that the definition of The Fraudsters' Parliament could (allegedly) be:-

The largest single concentration of shysters, con artists and fraudsters this side of prison bars!'

The Fraudsters' Parliament - 55

Check out the latest from Mark Darcy's blog on the rantings of those MPs who are trying to neuter IPSA and thus get their fingers back in the till and their seats reserved back on the parliamentary gravy train?....

Am I just a little cynical about their breast beating, tearing out of hair etc.... etc .... etc..... relating to the bogeypersons at IPSA? ('Bogeypersons' - how PC is that?)
