Just heard on the news that Scotland Yard will look imto some of our MP's "claims"..........

Are they any less corrupt than the MPs, though?

of a self-fulfilling prophesy getting under way.

I would not mind betting that a few small fish are investigated a massive public expense, but no charges will be brought due to "insufficient evidence of wilfull wrongdoing". Either that or it will be the HoC boghouse cleaners fault.

I repeat the prediction I made in an earlier thread.

After due consideration of all the evidence the DPP/CPS will decide that there is insufficient evidence to justify proceedings and/or any proceedings would not be in the public interest.

They didn't mean to claim the money, they were all claimed by mistake.

They are sorry, but only because they have been found out.

I agree with the 21:06 post except that it is most certainly in the public interest.

Looking at all the blanked out information,it was very surprising that the Official Secrets Act and the 20/30 year rule wasn't applied to this investigation ;o))

I would suggest we wait and see, the evidence is there, together with overwhelming public anger. What is now required is a drastic overhaul of our Parliamentary system. To say it is dated and past its sell by date is a gross understatement.
I'm currently trying to draw a comparison between our democratic set-up and Iran's. All suggestions welcomed!

Do you not think that a sacrificial lamb is being called for here? British taxpayers are outraged, and when that happens someone's head must roll.

Looks like the tea trolley person in the Fees Office in for a right caning then!.

At least this news will take the limelight from the bankers situation,the worlds recession, and possible Fred the Shred's return to British shores and another job in banking ;o(
