No, she should not have gone!

By Mike Cunningham On April 9th, 2014 at 9:39 am

Strangely enough, I do not believe that Maria Miller should have resigned. Most of the hue and cry which has pursued this lying, thieving and mendacious woman is based upon two inaccuracies.

The first is the simple fact that her thieving and lying behaviour was based upon rules of behaviour which have been replaced by much sterner equivalents. What she did was no more and no less than some 400 other MPs did before the eruption following the Telegraph’s expenses campaign. Where this thieving bitch went wrong was attempting to browbeat the Parliamentary Commissioner into either dropping or altering the terms of her investigation; and also attempting to place a block on the Telegraph reporter’s legitimate investigation by getting her advisor to quote Miller’s position as a Minister responsible for Press Regulation, to harass or bully the newspaper into dropping the investigation.

The second inaccuracy is of course that Miller was just doing her job by piloting through Parliament the disgusting and disgraceful Cameron-inspired Homosexual Marriage Act’s debasement of Marriage, and also controlling and pushing for the Leveson Royal Charter against Press Freedom; which pales into insignificance beside the fact that this Government, and the Labour bunch before it has given into Terrorism’s demands so that our own Queen Elizabeth was forced to accept into her presence one of the main leaders of SinnFeinIRA when Martin McGuiness sat down as a guest at Windsor Castle. A man who undoubtedly knew of the planned terror murder of her own dear Uncle, and the murder of well over two thousand other British subjects. So if he and his ilk can sit at Stormont and eat their fill at Windsor with Her Majesty, why should Miller have been eventually forced to fall on her sword to protect the Prime Minister, who was about to receive an almighty shellacking during Questions to the Prime Minister early this afternoon.


Just noticed this photo in the Mail, and ATW readers are invited to provise the caption for Martin’s Moment!

The thieves continue to cough up their ill-gotten gains.


Tory Stewart Jackson is being sued for £54,000 after failing to agree a repayment plan. Andy Burnham still owes £2,850.24 after creaming off a £4,456.08 capital gains profit, to be repaid by November this year. John Denham is due to pay back £5,394.80, David Willetts owes £7,230.74, James Paice £9,177.12, Andrew George is paying back ten grand and Brian Donohoe still owes £7,369.36. Philip Hammond is on his last repayment of £34,883.54 capital gains. Most MPs have already paid back the cash they made, David Gauke forked out £26,762.76, John Whittingdale £12,441.00, Tim Yeo £3,215.74, David Jones £81,446.00, Greg Campbell £61,403.18, and Hazel Blears £7,644.00.


I wonder how much would have even been seen leaving a single bank asccount if we had not learnt of the gross theft and general malfeasance by just about all the MPs of the last Parliament, greasy-lipped Cameron included?

margaret’s soul-brother steps down

Politics in America has long proved to be as dirty as its parent in these shady shores, and this is just another episode.

The Margaret of the title is of course Margaret Moran, she of the expenses and the extremely convenient ‘mental illness’, and her distant cousin is of course the ‘promising politician’  Jesse Jackson Jr. Seeing as CREW sees all Republicans as demons in disguise, and all Democrats as ‘whiter-than-white’, Jesse must really have impressed them!

As you say, so shall you do?

At the time of the Westminster Expenses Farce, we, the public, were promised by one set of liars that, if we trusted them, the whole ‘Expenses’ sham would never happen again.

As can be seen by this; we have seen all their promises kept to the very word (Please note the heavy tone of sarcasm used was completely unavoidable!)


Nice work, Jacqui!

I suppose there will be a short statement along the lines of, “at all times I was strictly observing the rules; and therefore have done nothing to apologise for.”


All the best.

The usual run of newspaper stories present few instances of journalistic humour, but I thought that the Daily Mail story about Cabinet Minister Chris Huhne, his bisexual lover and his rejected wife hit the nail..

The story, mainly about the hugely exorbitant expenses claimed by M.P.s,  ran:-

“In the week Chris Huhne left his wife for a younger woman, his expenses reveal he claimed money for servicing an old boiler.

The bill for £1,500 was for general household maintenance and was dated 7 April 2009. 

That was a year after he started an affair with his 44-year-old bisexual press officer Carina Trimingham and  just over a year before this week’s announcement that the Energy Secretary was leaving his 57-year-old wife Vicky Pryce.”

I don’t think a woman aged 47 qualifies for the term ‘old’!
