So far, about 13 MPs are to stand down at the next election. Many more have already agreed to pay back the money that they fraudulently took.
Why don’t they RESIGN NOW and step down immediately.
They are already in disgrace, nothing they say or do can put right their clear moral failings.
The only reason they don’t go now is purely financial. They want to cling on until the general election in order to claim another years salary and if they step down then instead of now they can also claim a tax free £30,000 for leaving office.
Indeed, the leaders of all three parties are also in it right up to their necks.
Why should Gordon Brown claim £6,500 for cleaning a flat when for the past 12 years he has been living at 10 Downing Street. (He was even living at number 10 when Blair was PM because the flat above 11 Downing Street is much bigger and they swapped because of Blairs larger family).
David Cameron claims mortgage interest but why should he when he would have brought a house outright in such a claim were not allowed, Cameron and his wife are worth about £30m between them.
Even Nick Clegg, leader of the libdems was forced to admit that when he was an MEP he took the cheapest flights he could to Brussels but claimed for first class travel (all within the rules).
Clearly the cancer of corruption reaches to the top.
The only thing these corrupt politicians care about is staying in power so lets give them and everyone else in their parties a message that they can relate to, lets give them a kicking in the ballot box on the 4th of June.
