My mothers always said that politicians had too many "fingers in the pot", sadly she's right.

All we need now is the authoritarian Jacqui Smith to be embroiled in yet another scandal and resign, and it will be the start of a beautiful new beginning for British Politics.

Hopefully with the Lib Dems at the helm. At least labour could have a nice break in order to reflect on the reasons why they were actually elected to begin with.

Dear Paul

In my post of May 15th @3.24 pm I highlighted the problem of the Fees Office; you replied with an example of your experience regarding a bed.

The case of Ben Chapman, MP being allowed to claim £15,000 which he wasn't entitled to is a clear example of the problem as I see it.

Not only must the Speaker go for dragging his heels but it appears that certain staff need to be removed and put elsewhere or indeed sacked.

To claim for a mortgage that doesn't exist is criminal fraud and misconduct in public Office.

Mr. Chapman's defence which doesn't hold water is the classic; 'they told me it was all right'.

The 'I was just obeying orders' has led to many people throughout history getting their necked stretched or locked up and the key thrown away.

Good luck in your and others efforts to remove the Speaker.

Yours sincerely

Thanks Jeff. Some of the excuses are more revolting than the offences. Did you hear Margaret Moran's weepy plea that she shoulde allowed to spend £20,000 fixing the dry rot on her partner's house, 200 mles from Luton, in order to fulfil her parliamentrary duties. The Tory Stewart Jackon who claimed £300 'only once' for his swimming pool to be cleaned said he is now doing it himself and 'saving the public money'. Well done, Stewart, The MBE is in the post.

Keep up the good work Paul. Another excellent interview this morning. Can't you remind some of your colleagues to remember Denis Healey famous comment about when your are in a hole you should stop digging. I nearly choked this morning on my breakfast when I read that one MP was using the defence that being elected in 2005 had led to her being thousands of pounds in debt. Comments such as this sadly just make the situation worse and insult the intelligence of the average elector. To argue that the taxpayer should pay for a new bath because it is marked is farcical.
