I see trouble ahead…

Clive Davis in the Spectator, from a letter in the Guardian (the Guardian link doesn’t work for some reason)…

Reading Chris Mullin’s excellent diaries, “A View from the Foothills”, I came across this entry from 1 May 2002: “Apparently, under the Freedom of Information Act, by January 2005, MPs’ expenses will be subject to public scrutiny, retrospectively. Goodness knows what mayhem that will cause. ‘We are in a jam,’ said Robin Cook. ‘Few members have yet tumbled to the juggernaut heading their way.'”

Seven years. Count them 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. That is a long time, in or out of politics.

Seven years to clean up your tracks, to clean up your bevaviour, to think of a better excuse than ‘Oh dear. How silly of me’.

What stupid thick bastards/arrogant shits do we have running this place that even with seven years notice they still fuck it up for themselves?

I think I’m gonna go rope shopping at the weekend. The lamposts round my way need some decorating.
