Jacqui Smith – Enough is Enough Say The People of Redditch

By Tory Aardvark

The mealy mouthed apology from Jacqui Smith has bombed badly with the voters in her Redditch constituency, as Gordon Brown’s Labour again let one of its own off the hook.
There is one rule of law for Labour politicians and one rule of law for the rest of the population.

The scandal of MP’s expenses has done little to improve the contempt that the public have for their politicians, how could the Standards and Privileges Committee seriously believe that a verdict like this would increase public trust in MP’s? On every occasion Labour has protected it’s own at the expense of the credibility and integrity of Parliament.

The actual makeup of the Standards and Privileges Committee on the day the verdict was reached was 5 Labour MP’s and 1 Conservative, so with a 5:1 majority Labour again protected one of it’s own and justice was not done.

With their usual arrogance Labour have just assumed it would all blow away and in due course Smith would be elevated to the House of Lords, after the General Election.

This time it looks unlikely as people have finally had enough of Labour and it’s one rule for us and one for them.

A campaign to remove Smith has gathered over 5,000 signatures, but Smith of course will not step down as her constituents “need her”.

The Redditch Advertiser has details of Smith’s grudging apology; the interesting part is the comments from the voters of Redditch.

As is so typical of the New Labour MP Smith will doubtless hang on until May for her gold plated pension and further opportunities to trough from the Public Purse.

  2. We Must Be Heard

    As i was saying Last Night, it looks like Porns R Us Smiths are up rootiing, and trying their hand in Wigan.

    Not sure who is in front of the Queue but so far its between Mandy, Beckett and Smith, there is only 2 seats. Hope they have them doing a good old showdown,
    I Don’t want any of them here, and i have told my local paper that, not sure if its will get Printed.
