What A Shower Of Fraudsters.
Here, from the West Mercia quango hustings, is a perfect example of how this is all panning out. The usual wriggling and patent opportunism of the Tory and ex MEP, Labour candidates struggling to cope with their troughs being considered less full than they expect. I can tell you, The Tory is about as grasping a chancer you'll ever find. God willing he'll not get in and the man declaring to take a 20K pay cut will.
Politics in the UK Federal State of Europe is no longer, nor rarely was, ever black and white. With one notable exception today. Any job with the stain of tri-party political connection is tainted from conception. These posts will be paid between 75-100k a year. Plus, remember, an expense account and pension entitlement of double that. No wonder MEPs and "retired" Lord of the Pies Prezza are salivating at the chance of more troughing.
Since we are lumbered with these cretinous parasites let's at least make sure we don't hand them their new bibs on a plate. Dreadful business. We get shafted from every quarter and back again and seemingly constantly beg for more. It beggars belief as well as our money.
