YOU COULD HEAR A PIN DROP AS CASH FOR HONOURS QUESTION WAS ASKED!


CASH FOR HONOURS – YOU COULD HAVE HEARD A PIN DROP


SNP MP Angus MacNeil,  questioned the Deputy Prime
Minister on the connection between honours and donations to political
parties.

The question by Mr MacNeil, who sparked the cash for honours
investigation, was greeted by an awkward silence in the Commons. His
question followed the announcement of 54 further appointments to the
Lords.

Commenting outside the chamber Mr MacNeil said:

“There should be no connection between donations and honours, but the
awkward silence of MPs across the London parties said it all - you
could have heard a pin drop in the chamber. Needless to say Nick Clegg
fudged the answer.

“Members from all other political parties seemed to squirm and look at
their feet or their finger nails as the Lords is still tainted by the
connection between political donations and peerages.

“The new government may talk the talk on House of Lords reform but we
still have far too many big donors being elevated to the upper House.”


No one from the SNP sits in the Lords as they are men of principle, who don't get elevated to the peerage by favour or by buying a seat, with a considerable cash donation to a party.  The whole system stinks and it was time it was pulled down and started again.


All smoke and mirrors.  There is still a stench from Westminster.  But, did we really believe they would clean it up?  If you did, I'm sorry but you are naive in the extreme!

"...greeted by an awkward silence in the Commons" I'll bet it was, there's hardly one of the fuckers not mired in sleaze up to and including that cheeky cunt Cameron and his fucking wysteria.

All of them will be thinking 'how the fuck am I going to make it into the Lords if this MacNeil character makes paying for the privilege to awkward?'

Banned, and then the cunts can sit in there and pile ip their expenses. That Lord Watson that was done for fire raising and jailed still sits in the Lords and get himself £100k in exes and he never speaks. Sitting there covered in ermine when it should be shite.

Unelected arsesholes sucking at the hind teat - disgusting.

That's politics for ye!
Snouts in the trough. They are nothing but legal criminals, stealing money to lavish their lifestyles and the people continue to elect them. Who's the bigger fool?

There needs to be a clear out of that place. If America with 50 states and a population of 400,000,000 can manage with 100 senators I have no idea why we need 750 of the lazy tossers eating and drinking and lying.

Lord Invergowrie at least was a decent bloke, I heard from Brownlie, (who worked with him on homelessness) before he was elevated to the aristocracy, lost the plot and found a great big fat pay cheque for doing diddly.

Mcgonners, time we sorted the bastards out. How come the Us only needs 100 Senators for 375 million people and we've got Bishops and criminals?

Dark Lochnagar said...

Harbingrers, time the Telegraph turned the heat up again. No don't bother I know what you're going to say!

Dark Lochnagar said...

Tris, I dare say he was a good MP, but he is now a crook and shouldn't be a Lord.

Harbinger said...

How on earth did you know I was going to say supercalafragelisticexpialidoshus?

I'm impressed DL ;)

Dark Lochnagar said...

Harbingers, I don't see you as an Eliza Doolittle. Fuck. Wrong musical. That's the Jewish one!

Actually it might be. Rex Harrison, sounds kind of Jewish but Wiki have stopped telling us now. Less leaks and more info, I say.

Harbinger said...

Interesting you mention Aliza Doolitle/Pygmalion for George Bernard Shaw has an interesting history - Socialist - Member of the Fabian Society and founded the London School of Economics. In other words, a very bad man involved with people that have caused much misery on the people of Britain and worse still planned much of our future too.

By the way the musical was Mary Poppins ;)

Dark Lochnagar said...

Harbinger, I fucking know that. I was comparing you to the character.

Shaw looked like a fucking Marxist. He could even have been a Russian, the bastard.

Harbinger said...

I'm way better looking that Eliza!
And Shaw, could have been Karl Marx in disguise you know......

Harbingers, you never see the fuckers in the same room.
