Parliament’s Titanic moment: The Guardian.


More news about the discoveries that The Telegraph are making, it seems that up to now only information for 180 MPs has been revealed as yet there are still possibly serious scandals ahead as the newspaper’s staff dig into the rest – 466 MPs who so far have escaped; many no doubt will be in fear of what we may learn of their antics:

“…The Daily Telegraph’s chief political commentator, Ben Brogan, is eloquent about the task facing the paper. There are 700,000 documents on the database, and none of the material comes with a handy index – “Elliott Morley, phantom mortgage, payment of”.

    We live in a democracy, you are misunderstanding a desire for anger and complaining for revolution – there will be no revolution. Reform of the electoral and parliamentary system is all that is required. Our free sand democratic political system remains the best in the world.
