I love this, our glorious MPs have had a debate on abuse of MPs. Some good one liners from their goldfish bowl.
'The Home Office minister Sarah Newton said Stewart’s experience was “simply unacceptable” and that standing for public office should be seen as a noble thing. '
Now that depends on your starting point and whether you view it as a vocation or a get rich quick scheme like a certain Mr Blair.
“It is essential for our democracy that people are able to stand for office and become a member of parliament without fearing they will experience abuse. It is equally essential MPs are able to represent their constituents without being abused or intimidated,”
Fair enough but this again comes down to the MPs motives for being an MP and in the case of political parties their selection processes especially in safe seats which are often highly dubious.
For the Labour and Conservative Parties I think they only have themselves to blame for dragging MPs reputations down with them.
Expenses anyone, how about a nice job at a bank as a thankyou for years of unswerving duty.
This was in the guardian of course.
