Parliament – the day of reckoning


Today saw yet another politician ousted for fiddling expenses. Over the last six weeks we have seen politicians of all political parties fall like dominoes in the wake of the Daily Telegraph exposé. The list of MPs expenses is now available on the parliament web site – although certain expenses have been covered up.
These have been confusing and unprecedented times in politics, leaving the general public feeling confused and disenchanted with the revelations of the ‘snouts in the trough’ behaviour of many politicians. The rise of fringe parties is telling us that all is definitely not well, and serious and credible reform is needed, from people we can trust, (or is a trustworthy politician an oxymoron)

So - politicians, what are you going to do to restore your credibility?
What are you going to do about the problems in society?

With all of the political 'snouts in the trough' it's a wonder why more people aren't embracing swine flu!
