The new Speaker! MP Maggots reported depressed!
MPs caught up in the expenses scandal admitted that they could be dropped by their local parties. Others were said by colleagues to be ready to walk away. Some who have been unaffected declared that the attractions of life as an MP had disappeared.
It was the grimmest time that most could remember, with many still fearful about future disclosures and none able to raise enthusiasm for immediate concerns such as the European and local elections. As the police were asked to investigate for fraud, yesterday’s developments engulfed MPs, peers and the Speaker.
All this is well deserved and has been coming at them for a long time as this blog has almost daily indicated for over six years, so enough said of their abuses and treachery for now.A new Speaker is urgently required and elsewhere I read reports that Frank Field is being considered. Mr Field seems to be one of the sole members of Parliament who has shown any moral courage or compass over recent years, yet perhaps an overwhelming argument against his candidacy is his present party membership. As it is almost impossible to identify any candidate of similar qualities on the opposition benches, perhaps Mr Field should now resign from the Labour Party to render himself eligible as an Independent!
