How stupid are they/do they think we are?

After Jack Straw admitting

Accountancy does not appear to be my strongest suit.

…when his department is in charge of a bucket load of cash, he is a fellow of the Royal Society of Statasticians and once upon a time fancied himself as Chancellor, we now have Elliot Morley who didn’t know when his mortgage had been paid off and so claimed £16,000 for it

Elliot Morley, a former fisheries and environment minister, claimed £800 per month for a property in Scunthorpe when the mortgage had already been paid.

Mr Morley told the BBC he repaid the money after realising he had mistakenly continued claiming for his mortgage payments after it was repaid in 2006.

Didn’t he wonder why the statements from the mortgage company stopped? Didn’t he wonder why he was suddenly £800 up in his bank every month FOR 20 MONTHS?!

How do these cunting fucks expect us to believe a word they fucking say when they put fucking stupid shit like this down to ‘a mistake’?

Either they are fucking bent and need prosecuting for fraud or they are so fucking stupid that they shouldn’t be anywhere near the seat of power in a Wendy House, never mind the Houses of Parliament.

    I’m surprised that so many people are shocked – what, you thought MPs were some honest, noble breed? The falsifiers of dodgy documents who’ll happily start a war to keep their job?
    “Here’s the trough, get your snout in it.”

      It’s not that they were playing the system, it’s the extent and and the Shit. Fucking. Lies. that make me angry.
      I mean, is that the best he can do? ‘oops! Sorry. I didn’t realise my mortgage finished two years ago’.

      And this morning R4, it was mentioned that Morley was caliming for a mortgage on a property (I do not know if it was the same one) that he was renting to another MP who was claiming the rent back on his expenses. What’s his excuse for that one? ‘Oops! I didn’t realise I wasn’t living there. Silly me.’

      And now it turns out they had seven years notice!

      I fucking despair

  • It beggers belief, really it does.
