After reading the paper's over the last several day's i thought i would like to ask my fellow member's what do you think about the latest corruption allegations by this Tory Government. Especially one OWEN PATERSON he is already in receipt of an annual salary of some £79 thousands pounds plus expenses, apparently he was a cabinet minister until 2014 which brought him an extra £25 thousand pounds , So he now says he is stepping aside from his £ 110 thousands per year consultancy work this after he has been found wanting. He goes on to say politics is a cruel nasty world .. and he has had enough !!! ( Does that mean the food in the pigs trough is not the same now)) SO we FAST forward to today and now he has been caught with his sticky thieving fingers in the till ,, he is going around moaning and complaining that politics are not the same today,, I would like to cast your minds back to the 70/80/90s If you recall we had LABOUR politicians being sent to JAIL just for this similar greedy offence ,so i BEG the question is the police going to be brought into this scenario of corruption in out political system which appears to be more widespread than just this one MP there are several more in the pipeline to be questioned ... THEN we come to our illustrious so-called leader of the country ,,, Boris Johnson, he has completely washed his grubby finger's and announced that the decision """WILL NOW BE UP TO THE ELECTORATE IT IS THEIR RESPONSIBILTY TO DECIDE"" !!!! What a load of cobbler's ,may i ask just how the hell are we to know when election time comes round just what kind of a politician he/she would be ,,?? for once elected we all know they don't give a " FIG" ABOUT US ,, ( DO THEY?) SO there you have it i will be very interested to see some feedback ,,,,

They all urinate in the same pot.... Greed followed by more greed with their snouts in many a trough.... If we voted them in.... Let's vote them out.... Simple.

Yes, but you just replace Tory greed with Labour greed, as like you say they all wee in the same pot.

I agree with the sentiments of them all being the same, but Johnsons comment saying it's up to the electorate to decide is exactly what they did when the "red wall " came tumbling down due to Labour consistently going against their supporters who voted for brexit.....

Tommy/Terry, as you both correctly say, both as corrupt as the next, peeing in the same pot. But, What's the answer ? an Independent Party with the same morals as the ' Untouchables ' police force ?.
