Public Sector Pensions
Listening to the Minister for Chutzpah, Frances Maude MP describing potential public sector strikes as ‘irresponsible’ and ‘out of touch’ with the majority of people in the UK fair took the breath away.
This is a man of such probity he bought a house 300 yards from where he lived in London, to spite the Parliamentary Fees Office. He already owned several other properties but he felt that the taxpayers should pay for at least one of them. He was not alone. Many of his colleagues did the same.
No way should this creep be allowed anywhere near the nation’s airwaves without a warning to the effect that listening to this odious turd was likely to prove detrimental to the public good. At the very least he should be introduced as someone who utilised ‘the rules’ (created by his parliamentary free-loading colleagues) to further his property empire at our expense.
Such an introduction would have at least two beneficial effects. Very few listeners would give him or his thoughts the time of day. It would also mean we would hear a lot less from him and his partners in slime.
A worthwhile outcome.
