No, Cashy...I don't think it works like that for us poor plebs.
You have to have MP after your name.

One law for them...
She's an idiot and from the latest pics of her she is in bad health.. I don't reckon her being banged up would be any use.
I'd like to know what criteria is used to prosecute these MP's.. can't see much difference in claiming for a new boiler or claiming rent for an appartment for your boyfriend .. or claiming thousands for hotels you ain't stayed in ..??...some seem to get off lightly and just shoved under the carpet!

This woman has been judged unfit to plead because of depression.......and she won't even have a criminal record at the end of all this. Ok...so don't put her in prison, but she should have this on record.
She is a fraudster and cannot be trusted.

The British parliament has been in shame for years, it's reflected in the decreasing amount of people voting.

If you took a straw poll asking 'do you trust politicians?', my guess is that 95% would say NO! The 5% YES vote would be the relatives/hangers on of politicians.

Of course that poll would never occur, because the politicians would change the question into 'do you honestly not, not trust politicians to be honestly not honest?'

As you stated in first paragraph less people voting therefore the figures in your straw poll are wrong.
Allow me to explain,

95% wouldn't vote in it therefore the 5% that does vote relatives/hangers on etc. would have a 100% result of Yes we do trust politicians.
A resounding result proving that the system works, allowing politicians to continue in the manner politicians are so adept at.

The real tragedy is that even a tongue in cheek reply like that is probably nearer to the truth than we probably realise....

Meanwhile back hidden amongst headlines of feigned outrage by the PM about being asked a question by a TV presenter ( I mean how dare anyone ask our Dave a difficult unrehearsed question)..here's yet another trough eater who it seems has no case to answer.

Disgraced peer claimed £286k in expenses

...and despite this catalogue of abuses, he's STILL sitting in the House of Lords as a crossbencher. Is it any wonder nobody trusts politicians any more?

Seem to remember such a poll in Canada earlier this year and politicians didn't fare all that well on the "trust" question. I remember they polled better than psychics and telemarketers (barely); but worse than used car salesmen and lawyers.

Well I for one can understand their fears, they screw the system, but don't want protesters turning up and ruining their lawn (or duck pond) of course they should be protected, they have something to fear, unlike honest folk.

You know, only yesterday our MP was banging on about rogue landlords in the house, strange how he made no mention of the 'real' rogue landlords who rent property from each other at the taxpayers expense!

Maybe he'll comment on this one, as it doesn't involve criticizing any Labour politicians. In fact, I'm surprised C'mon hasn't been on here babbling about it.
