"Look. Only one person in the world matters and I'm giving you a clue, right now, who it is."

Tony McNumpty (Is there an English name to be found in parliament now or has Labour wiped them all out?) was a good boy to his mum and dad. He looked after them with money he stole from the taxpayer, and he has now apologised for getting caught. As practically everyone has realised, he has made no apology for his blatant thievery to the people he stole from because he and his ilk don't regard the people of this country as anything more than cattle to be milked. Tug that forelock, prole. If you don't have a forelock, the NHS will graft one on for you.
Mr McNulty acknowledged that he "should have had much more concern about how my arrangements appeared to the public",
He really should have had more concern about how his weasel words now appear to the public. Concern about how his arrangements appeared? He has apologised to the rest of the brigands sitting on the green benches for getting caught and embarrassing them - as if they have not done quite enough to embarrass themselves anyway. No apology for blatant thievery, even though it must have been obvious even to the limited cognitive capacity of the average Labour minister that using public funds to pay his parents' bills could not possibly be in any way a legitimate business expense. This is not a 'mistake'. This is theft. So a burglar, caught with a DVD player, can just say 'Oh, that. I didn't mean to pick that up on the way out. It's a mistake. I didn't steal it, it's just a technical breach of the rules.'
How can anyone consider trying to reason with these people now? There is really nothing left to say. They have been caught with their hands in the till and still they do not see that they have done anything wrong. They put themselves above the law and cannot understand why anyone might object to that. That's the key issue - they will not, and cannot, understand why people are angry with them. They cannot be rehabilitated. They cannot be re-educated. They are beyond any form of salvation or redemption. They will never, ever realise that they are not Olympian gods and goddesses, but are more akin to the trolls and goblins of popular lore. Just - uglier, greedier and less sought-after as house guests than a plague of cockroaches.
Even Tiny Blur, the very epitome of self-importance and arrogance, still cannot see. He has graciously offered to be the EU president as long as 'the job is big enough'. How bloody big can it get, you grinning ghoul? It's halfway to King of the World and comes with a palace, as many cars as you can pollute the atmosphere with and as many taxpayer pounds of flesh as you can eat. Not enough for Tony the Ego. He wants 'a motorcade that will stop the traffic in any city'. The wretched proles will just have to get out of the way because there is no room in the average metropolis for Tony Blair's head and anyone else. King Ego and Queen Slotgob will only deign to rule us if there's more kudos in the job than Genghis Khan's. I hope the rest of the EU leaders look at that story and think 'What a twat'. Again. They won't though. They know the best man for the job of slapping down the far-too-independent people of the UK is Tiny Blur. In fact, he's taking so long to decide that they've started without him.
There is one spark of good news today. Sir Christopher Kelly plans to scrap the £60,000 handout an MP gets when they stand down at an election. Not at this one, but at the one after. So to get their sweaty, pallid fingers on that money they'll have to stand down at the next election. I hope they all take the money and go. Every last one of them. Give it to them in cash and have police waiting outside to confiscate it, because anyone carrying more than £1000 in cash is obviously a drug dealer in Labour's Britain.
Then let's vote someone in who will get us out of the EU before it bleeds us dry, and before Blair continues his 'trash Britain' agenda from his mountain-top fortress somewhere in the mountains of Europe. The EU want him, the EU can keep him.
They can have the rest of them too.
