It found that he broke the ministerial code. That's a hanging offence.

And he's not that clever - none of them are, except in comparison to their activists.

Breaking the ministerial code sounds innocuous. Could happen to anyone, that sort of thing.

Has he fuck. He's a liar. How do we know what he might have been promised in the long term? Or that there isn't money in an account somewhere? He's not as clever as he thinks he is, clearly. But he's not stupid enough to have had money paid into his main current account.

An enquiry lasting 4 days by a civil servant doesn't "clear" anyone. It merely doesn't find evidence of wrongdoing.



Precisely. Does anyone really believe that the second that he leaves Parliament he won't be straight onto lucrative contracts with arms companies that he's been helpful to? See Lansley with private health providers too - he just doesn't have a friend to embarrass him.

I'm quite surprised that Bercow hasn't yet set the Sergeant-at-Arms onto Werrity for misusing the HoC's portcullis logo. They usually come down on people like a ton of bricks for that.

As in the case of Lord Monkeytown.

Another dodgy fuck:

Let off by Sir Gus.

His children who own the shares are 14 and 15. They're his shares he didn't declare, aren't they?

How is he still in office?

Sir Gus seems to have a great deal invested in his coalition. I wouldn't trust him as far as I could spit.

Some smackdown for Djanogly, isn't it? Keeps job and pay. Does less work.

I recall a Tory MP called John Browne in about 1990 being suspended from the house for not declaring an interest. OK for a minister now, apparently.

Sir Gus retires in December but I bet he already has a couple of well paid directorships in the bag as soon as he is allowed to take them up.

Lord Butler on now. Acting all wise. He became master of my old college. He stood at the door to greet us as we went in to the drinks party. He was looking past me as he shook my hand.

He apparently reckons lobbying's fine as long as there's no personal gain. So if some Dorries-like group get their feet in the door, it's OK if they don't make any money from fucking up abortion laws?

Oh and Cristina Odone reckons the fact there was innuendo about Fox and Werritty was down to the gays telling us that everyone was a repressed gay. Because that's what gay rights campaigners do, isn't it?

Nothing to do with Fox telling lies and Werritty not knowing anything about defence, then?

For me, the most notable thing about the Fox/Werrity debacle is how it neatly encapsulated the Tories' entire purpose in seeking to govern. It is, in short, to be in a position to enable themselves and their friends in private enterprise to benefit to the maximum possible advantage from their governmental positions and the concomitant power to shape public affairs to precisely that end. Lansley's NHS re-vamp is also even more transparently part of that agenda - designed almost solely to enable the Tories' rich friends to turn handsome profits from lucrative NHS commissions.

'Twas ever thus, and 'twill get thusser - particularly while there are orange book Cleggs and Alexanders determined to aid and abet the Tories in fucking the least well off off over for their friends' profit.

It will continue until people wake up to it - but the Mail et al continue to dupe legions of brainless simpletons into thinking that the Tories have the country's best interests altruistically at heart.

I'm off for a nice lie-down, now.
