Highs & Lows

Posted in Videos by 200

I’ve posted several times on the way our trusty MPs are wont to stick their snouts in the trough, so I guess I’ve said most of what I have to say before. I’ll not say it again just now.

Now that they have been well & truly found out, isn’t it interesting to see them all clamouring to say how the system ‘doesn’t work’ and is in need of ‘reform’. Nobody willing to admit that they have taken full & immoral advantage, like, ‘just because we can have lots of free money, it means we have to’.

The most telling thing from the news today was that not a single commentator is expressing regret for their greed, but that they are demanding a police enquiry into who leaked all the dirty little secrets.

While on the subject of just about the least respected people in the country. Wasn’t it great to see Joanna Lumley making mincemeat of a government minister on national news yesterday? It must be quite surreal talking to one of the least respected people (MPs) about some of the most respected people (Gurkhas).

Just in case you missed it…

Sadly, another Gurkha died fighting for the UK this week in Afghanistan. Corporal Kumar Purja Pun, father of two, was blown up. He was among four UK soldiers to die on the same day. Doubtless, someone at the Home Office is, as we speak, writing a letter to his family declining any future attempt to stay in the UK.
