who left the House of Commons last year and who appeared in court yesterday re expenses. I'm not going to reproduce the pictures of her used in the Daily Mail, even if I could, because it would be wrong and cruel. Those who have been in court, and in several cases served time, are the ones who did not get the protection of the party and the establishment. They are not the only guilty ones. A correspondent who is no longer in the House writes:
Pictures of the above in the dock are horrific. Aged 90 or what? I am no excuser of wrongs - but the Party, as usual, has protected its own. Fat old chin wobbler ( and living room main-houser), Jacqui Smith gets glossier and earns dosh for BBC porn programmes. I'm nuts about Hazel, the big flipper, looks more and more like a cute Squirrel Nutkin. The male expense jailees are out - looking glossy. David corrupt Laws will never go in. Neither will the Fisher King, Salter. So she, wrongdoer though she may be -- is the one left to self destruct. Not 'protected' so might as well die...If her bloke was behind it, she should shop him now. He isn't going to prison, is he?!! For what it's worth - and I think it is, considering what SWINE most of them were, she was a good Whip. Decent to me -- not many people in that shithouse were.
