I'm with him

Graeme Edgeler, on the abuse of Ministerial expenses and the "Heatley excuse" that the rules were "unclear":

Dear Parliament,

you have one year to ‘make the rules clear’; after that I’m never voting for a party with a thief in it ever again. [And frankly, I think I'm being pretty generous here.]

I'm with him. There is no place in our political system for thieves. Either Parliament cleans itself up and takes steps to ensure this never happens again (and no, I don't mean steps like reducing transparency through block grants as they did for housing), or we will do it for them.
