“At last”, I thought, when I heard that there was to be a police investigation into some elements of the abuse of parliamentary expenses. My concern is, that will it be too little too late. There have been other high profile heavy dippings into the trough of the public purse, which so far, stay immune from prosecution. I still do not understand why.
It was beginning to appear that those who stand under the roof struts of Westminster, were spray-coated with Teflon from the moment they entered Parliament. It still seems to me, that though the non-stick coating is cracking in places, sufficient of it, is adhering to protect some ‘major’ figures, who are quietly refunding the public purse in the hope that no further muck will stick to them.
