Nigel's shagging in his office, Harry's lining his pockets, Jacqui's husband and paid employee is charging his porno to the taxpayer, meanwhile McNulty has gone off the radar. There will be riots in the street this week, the government is collapsing before our eyes and yet they are carrying on as if nothing has happened. The question must be asked, what does a Minister of the Crown have to do before he or she feels it necessary to resign? Think about Profumo, Smith, Aitkin, Mellor and even to some extent Mandelson. When this lot got busted taking advantage of their position or bringing the government or their party into disrepute they had the decency to fall on their sword and quit.
But no, Ms Smith, Mr Cohen, Mr McNulty and Mr Griffiths are so out of touch with public opinion, so detached, so arrogant that they feel that they can soldier on with little need to even apologise for their mistakes. The stench of corruption and deceit around this government is becoming overwhelming. Can they really last another 13 months?
They are no different from common thieves and has anyone reminded Mr Griffiths that Blunkett banned sex in the workplace? It seems that the Labour government can get away with a host of crimes. What would a minister have to do before they were forced to resign?
This government is decaying and by god sleaze and scandal is back.
