Dimpost on the credit card rorts

  • June 10th, 2010

Brilliant though I am conscious of relief that ordinary MPs did not have Parliamentary Service credit cards while I was there, so I was not led into temptation to use the card.

Friday – the revelations so far are almost reassuring. The scale of the misuse seems  less significant than it could have been, having regard to the amounts involved in the UK.

I think the attention to Tim Groser's grog bills is unfair. I hope he is glad-handing his way around the world. Getting liked and nurturing his informal networks is exactly what we want him to do. He'd not be helped by a reputation for short arms and long pockets.

Rather him than me in that life, but "someone's got to do it" is the truth in his case.

I am not so sure dude that we all have to pick our mot despised politician and carry on about expenditure. 

In the recent UK elections nearly 100 MP’s resigned or were voted out because of expenditure Rorts.

Rorts were  the way it was, and it no longer.

Here in little Gods own we   consume ourselves over their videos, and food bills, and alcohol, and videos.

It is  a violent intrusion from the plebiscite into public lives.

Big fucking deal, the amounts are pathetic.

In the corporate sector they don’t think twice.

For God’s sake people like Finance dealers Mark Hotchins and Eric Watson ruined hundreds of peoples lives without consequence.
