The Silence is Deafening

The MPs' remuneration juggernaut continues to gather momentum.

As predicted, Dave and Cleggy did nothing. Stayed stumm. Just moaned a bit on the sidelines. Gordy has meekly tried twice belatedly to seize the initiative by making the Standards Committee act more quickly.

Shame on all of them. It's clear none of them have either (a) an ethical or moral compass, (b) the balls to take on the vested interests of their own venal MPs nor (c) the nous to see an electoral open goal by coming forward with suggestions for a rigorous new system.
