THE TAXPAYER OWES ME …. I AM ABOVE THE RULES THAT GOVERN THE LITTLE FOLK.

I can’t remember what newspaper I cut this out of.
Tried finding it in the three weekend papers online but some newspapers don’t make everything easy to find.
Anyway ... No matter what country you’re in as you view this, I’d be willing to bet it could apply there as well.

At the moment here in the UK, there is a great outpouring of very real anger as over the last nine or so days, the papers have exposed a scandal in govt. of staggering proportions.

I did a post of only a few things a few days ago, there just is no space here to post all of it.
imageMPs (Members of Parliament) have been caught fiddling their expenses and doing something called “flipping” homes.  Buy a home with taxpayer money, use taxpayer money to fix it up, then sell for profit and keep said profit.  That’s the easy as I can make it explanation.  And that’s the least of it all.

In one case, a member claimed £125,000.00 for his office.  EXCEPT ....  his office turns out to be ....

HIS GARAGE!

One member had the moat (YES, MOAT) cleaned at his country estate. The taxpayer picked up the tab.

The list is loooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnngggggggggggggggggg.
There’s even a charge that some may have employed fictitious staff.
One member spent £8,000.00 on a fancy TV.  Do the math people.  What’s the current dollar pound ratio. You’ll get dollars for a better picture if you don’t think eight thousand pounds sounds large enough. On a freekin TV.  Like the taxpayer should have to buy his TV to begin with.

Understand this also folks .... not EVERYTHING they did was illegal because THEY WROTE THE RULES.  Unknown to the public. And many are now saying that hey, maybe we overstepped a bit but we weren’t breaking the rules.  The public isn’t buying that, nor should they.

One Asian member built a house in her homeland (I think it was India) and was also claiming expenses for an empty home here she never used.

Another thing.  Ministers here are entitled to homes that are called ‘Grace and Favor’ residences.  They do not actually have to use them if they’d rather have something of their own. BUT ... if they aren’t willing to live FREE of charge in homes provided for them, then they should damn well pay for the homes oif their choice with their own damn money.  Not the taxpayers.

Something else to think about as well and I should mention it as well.  An awful lot of these people are very,very wealthy in their own right.
So the idea that if we have really wealthy folks at the top, there might be less temptation for them to fiddle public monies, then someone who is poor and hungry.  Yeah well, better have another thunk.  Greed is greed is greed.

Tell ya what the real shame of it all is too.  These MPs and ministers actually believe they have things coming to them. They honestly believe they are, entitled.
The most telling reaction from most of them isn’t necessarily shock.  No.
They are truly surprised and stepping all over themselves saying sorry.  But it’s clear they’re only sorry they were all caught.
This is not over yet by a long shot.
Stay Tuned.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
