We’ve heard them all doing the rounds these last few days and what horrifies me is that MPs don’t get that they have done something wrong.
They keep saying that what they did was within the rules. So what? If I run a company and I institute a rule that says you can buy anything you want, claim for it and not show any receipts and take the money from people who are not fully benefiting from their contribution does that make it right?
Any way you look at this, the situation and behaviour is a disgrace. I am thoroughly disgusted. We need to show them how we feel at the polls. People, we must come out in our millions next elections and vote – and not for the BNP either. The next election will require serious work for us all.
We need to scrutinise the information that has come out – and if they put out the rest, we need to scrutinise it. We need to take note of which MPs have not been making merry with our money and vote for them. We also need to look at independent candidates because we really need to send a message. Look into your independents and if they are worthy, give them your vote. Ultimately, if there aren’t any viable candidates, perhaps we need to start running ourselves.
We can’t let this state of affairs continue.
People – your vote counts – turn off the telly for a couple of hours and get plugged in so you can make an intelligent decision. Our kids deserve much better.
