In an article in the Daily Telegraph, of all the Members of Parliament who fiddled their expenses, twenty-eight MPs have been given the money they publicly handed back, back to them quietly and without publicity. These are substantial amounts, and the top five who received their “cash backs” in terms of amounts, the total came to £29,910.98!

What would expect from a group such as this ?
This is unbelievable, but can you imagine working for a Company that has a little more than 600 Employees and has the following employee statistics…
29 accused of spouse abuse
7 arrested for fraud
9 accused of writing bad cheques
17 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
3 have done time for assault
71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
14 arrested on drug-related charges
8 arrested for shoplifting
21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
84 arrested for drink driving in the last year and collectively, this year alone, they have cost the British tax payer £92,993,748 in expenses!!!
Which organization is this?
It’s the 635 members of the House of Commons, the same group that cranks out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of the population of Britain in line.
What a bunch of bastards we have running our country – it says it all…
And just to top all that they probably have the best ‘corporate’pension scheme in the country!!
