Oh dear! When I started this blog I promised myself that I would keep it light and avoid matters political as far as possible but this is irresistible.
Mr Speaker in his infinite wisdom has appointed a panel of senior MP's to look into the present unpleasantness as regards MP's expenses/the employment of relatives etc.
One of the distinguished gentlemen so appointed is a certain Sir Stuart Bell. He formerly employed his son Malcolm (then 19) as researcher. Unlike some apparently, Malcolm certainly turned up for the job. The proof is that he stole 4 cheques from George Galloway's office and used them to obtain over £2,000 worth of assorted goodies. Now I have no axe to grind against Malcolm who may well have been young and foolish and undoubtedly paid the price (he went inside), but his dad as the right man to sort the present unpleasantness out?
