It’s not a party thing

11 May

So the PM apologies?

I’m sorry, but… I’m not interested in politicians cleaning up their act.

I want them to be held accountable – as criminals, where necessary. If the general public dodge tax, or try to fiddle benefits, they get hammered (this government even screened ads demanding we turn each other in, if we suspect wrongdoing).

And please, don’t allow them to hide behind technicalities. These are our elected leaders. They, supposedly, serve at our pleasure.

Why should politicians be allowed to say sorry, promise to do better, and keep their ill-gotten loot? If they do, why shouldn’t future politicians not be allowed to wet their beak? No, no, NO! Every claim that can’t be justified as wholly legitimate should be paid back. I don’t give a runny shit whether it costs £10m to investigate and claim back £500,000 – I WANT IT BACK.

Why are they so special, and why are their proposals so clearly designed to allow much of this to continue?

It’s not just Labour. Our politics – all of it – is broken.
