...for any MP is the news that s/he "has the full support of the prime minister". After that, it's just a matter of time. I nearly posted about this a couple of days ago apropos Maria Miller, with the arrogant headline "you read it here first", but thought better of it.
But everyone knows it now. Isn't it odd how Joe Public only has to help himself to a couple of pounds from the till, and he's out on his ear. MPs, on the other hand, are allowed to "step down" or "resign" with some dignity intact. Oh, and she's getting redundancy pay. The fact that she's giving it to charity is immaterial. She is being rewarded for her dishonesty.
Suddenly the Monster Raving Loony Party doesn't sound such a bad idea (if it still exists?).
Cynical? Moi? Perish the thought.
