Steven Patrick says it best


It seems that a number of MPs have been taking the piss with their expenses-claiming. Up and down the country hardworking party workers and activists are doing their best to maintain Labour representation only to have their efforts undermined by the actions of some members of the PLP.

The sickening stench of avarice surrounding these revelations is made all the more pungent by reports that whilst Parliamentary pockets have been filled inequality in Britain has been getting worse.

The belief that a Labour government results in a more equal society is essentially the reason why many of us joined the party. It’s what keeps us paying our dues, stuffing envelopes, knocking on doors, standing up for Labour when everyone else is mocking it, etc.

So this is all extremely depressing.

Plus my melancholy is compounded by upcoming exams for which I have been desperately trying to work out how to talk about OLS regression analysis. I’ve been so busy that I haven’t been able to post on two cheery topics I feel very strongly about: Why euthanasia should be legal in the UK and If there’s a country that needs to be chucked out of the European Union it is Italy.

But Morrissey-viewing will be taking place at the end of this month, so that’s at least one occasion of misery I can look forward to!

    Bring on the euthanasia debate! I too am drowning in commercial law and so struggling to find time to post. I also refuse to post about MP expenses on the grounds that ‘if you have nothing positive to say, don’t say anything!’
