true.

But you will not be getting many middle-class votes by boring everybody about what preposition best describes a man with lipstick.

Eddie Izzard is one of us......but its not going to affect who gets into Downing Street.

Unusually Starmer is shouting corruption (so he is still there).

Labour will not attend the rigged tory committee to give it credibility, it is a kangaroo court.

Corruption has really become the norm in the UK it is sad but the John Major sleaze which resulted in his downfall would not do so now.

Labour is now the party of low taxation and businesses disenchanted with the tories, there is plenty of pain to come withy no benefits for the voters, apart from the rich.

Watching for interest rate hikes could be double-digit this time next year.

I disagree with DanH on a lot politically but fully agree with this. Double their pay with the caveat that, that's it. No lobbying work no second jobs where you are in effect working 2 or 3 days a week as a part time consultant for British Airways or a huge multi national construction company.
On a personal note so that these s***bags truly don't get their noses in the trough I'd also like to see their seats become limited to know more than two terms of parliament.

Well said. A sensible compromise that would reward our representatives fairly but make it clear that there's no excuse for abusing that position. With how much some politicians no doubt make on the side through dubious means though, it'd likely be a case of 'I can't go for that' (as Hall & Oats might say!). We often put up with this when its our favoured party in power and so inevitably shoot ourselves in the foot as the political tide turns. We get the governments we deserve.

Eddie Izzard is talented, very determined and very left wing.

Not much else to say about him.

The new romantics were fun in the eighties but let's just say that when I go for my full English in the cafe tomorrow I'd rather not be served by a bloke with lipstick.....in the same way that I don't really want a male nurse or female priest.

I'm sure they are all wonderful but it's just my preference.

I love this

Excellent precedent

If I ever fall foul of regulations I shall simply point out they aren’t perfect. And insist they hold no authority until they are. This will make it so much easier to stay on the right side of the law.

What part of being ticked off that a sitting MP has escaped sanction for egregiously breaking lobbying laws is a "socialist/liberal cliche"?

This has got absolutely nothing to do with left Vs right yet most of the same posters on here are doing some spectacular mental gymnastics to accommodate what is a flagrant attack on our democracy.

We elect these people to make decisions for the rest of us. They’ve made one.
Have a Coke and a smile and live with it.

They're certainly very good at making decisions for themselves. Not so much for us.

Couldn’t agree more - just repeating what WE has said about our elected representatives.

This government and previous conservative governments haven’t even helped that number on the bottom right of your payslip increase much though! Wages have been pretty much stagnant for a decade and we’re now seeing increasing inflation which means that number at the bottom right hand of your payslip doesn’t buy you as much as it used to.

The conservatives looking after your financial interests are a myth. They only care about their own.

Oh yes abbot and corbyn haven't used the system to buy their council houses have they. Silly you thinking only tories rinse the people!

You’re right. Perhaps I can get a job at the famously socialist/liberal Daily Mail.

You wonder who set up the process in the first place? Idiots?

In the House of Lords you can appeal the decision.

I suspect that any company that does not have a work place appeal process will lose at an employment tribunal.

So why on earth did the HOC think this was a good process to strat with.
