A Law Unto Themselves

Dear Ivor

It’s true I must confess I have been naïve! After reading the copious articles on the “cash for influence” affair I have realised that elitism is a way of life. You’ve either got it or you haven’t!

Otherwise how can a system that facilitates people to detrimentally manipulate this country’s legislation be allowed to continue unchecked for so long, unless supported and concealed by fellow beneficiaries. Should we be looking at what schools and universities they went to?

These people are in a position of trust and they have betrayed that trust so therefore surely there should be some kind of penalty. But no it appears that a simple statement of remorse is sufficient, followed no doubt by a spot of lunch.

After what can only be described as the expenses farce on behalf of the government this has got to be the final straw.

We are not only being taken for a ride and but also being charged excessively for the journey! How can it be fair, that individuals running their own small businesses have to provide receipts for all their outgoings to HMRC and yet this isn’t reciprocated by those running the system? Who said it was fair:

Statement from the Labour Party website:

Labour’s purpose is fairness: fair rules, fair chances and a fair say for everyone.

Double standards or just elitism again?
