Bring Them To Justice!
If it wasn’t bad enough that so many MPs have been caught with their snouts in the trough, some of these self-serving money-grabbing parasites are trying to hang on until the next election so that they can pocket a golden handshake and index linked pension.
But rather than just moan about this den of iniquity, the Taxpayers' Alliance (TPA) is doing something about it.
Chief Executive Matthew Elliott has announced that if the Police and Crown Prosecution Service fail to act, the TPA will bring private prosecutions against any MP who has broken the law with fraudulent claims on their expenses.
The TPA has launched a fighting fund appeal to help pay for the legal costs of bringing dishonest MPs to justice and contributions from the public are needed to help in the battle to clean up Westminster. Not The Barnet Times urges its readers to support this worthy appeal.
