It's The Poor What Gets The Blame

So - while Baroness Scotland got off with a slap on the wrist, Loloahi gets banged up ! How we need some of that Freedom, Fairness and Responsibility ...

I got her from a bar down in old Soho
Where you don’t stay long
Or you catch a dose of Ebola
E-B-O-L-A Ebola

She walked up to me and she asked for a job
And I asked her name
And in a dark brown voice she said Loloahi
L-O-L-O Loloahi

Well she’d left Tonga just a week before
And I’d never ever hired illegals before
But Loloahi smiled and she looked the part
And said ‘OK lady, when do I start?’

Well I’m not the sharpest knife in the tray
But when she showed me her papers, they looked OK
They said ‘Loloahi’

I fired her today
I rushed to see Gord
I begged and implored
I got down on my knees
And he said I have his full support

Well I’m not the world’s most clever QC
But I know why Gordon appointed me …

The rules are the rules but it’s just a mistake
I got mixed up, muddled up in good faith
Over Loloahi ...

(apologies to Ray Davies)

More grist to the Great Reform Bill? If the last lot could enact retrospective legislation at the drop of a Statutory Instrument, so can this lot. These cheats must be made to pay the price for their misdeeds.

I wonder how much longer we will put up with this sort of thing (and no, I don't mean songs about transvestites)?

I am told that a policeman got four months in jail for sex on the job, but Tony's mate Presclott gets a lordship. I think those that govern us should have harsher punishments for transgressions, not rewards.

Now, basically as a group, benefit claimants were more honest than the last crop of MPs, so what do you expect.
This is the framing effect - we are now not surprised if MPs are a bit spivvy.
Not so with the police. It still upsets and surprises me when a policeman is sent down - call me naive.

I will wait for Prescott's paramour to press charges as per the object of the Policemans unwanted attentions.

Such out and out liars, Labour. How they are still together is a mystery. Zero to do with freedom.
