Having come in and seen the news on the box the thoughts of the ‘cloak’ again reared their ugly but inevitable head.
It seems our honourable and trusted MPs have had a bit of a change of mind and decided to oppose efforts to make public exactly how much of our money they spend on themselves and what they spend it on.
At the same time they are to be allowed to vote with their conscience on the matter of embryo research. No worries about voting against the party line, but a free vote, a conscience vote. Just when I was beginning to think that this conscience thing was the one thing they did not possess. No worries about what the bosses think, no worries about failing to tow the party line, no worries about what their constituents want (although they never bother with this point) and the luxury of a free vote where they can vote in line with their conscience. I simply have to keep saying this over and over again. The luxury of a free vote returns me nicely again to the luxury of all those expenses they have at their disposal.
So returning to the little matter of those expenses for a new kitchen, a new bathroom, a second home in the constituency or perhaps in or around London. I wait with keen interest to see exactly how much they have to spend and some of the deemed essential needs they have to spend our money on themselves.
They claim grounds of security when in real terms, they must have a great number who are in real and direct fear of the population being told exactly how long, how wide, how deep and how fast this particular gravy train just happens to be, as well as where it stops.
We could know how wide and deep the trough is and how far the snouts are buried into it.
Exactly how much do they not want this information to become available in the public arena ?
I suspect, a very very lot, that’s how much.
Of course some will say that they welcome it and have nothing to hide. Itis only right and proper that these figures are put into the public domain.
Some others will dread the media spotlight revealing how much they rip off the taxpayer.
Life under the cloak. Still safe and invisibly accountable.
I have also become fed up with news of the presidential goings on in the good old US of A.
They too have their lives under the cloak. Hilary appears to have been lying out of her arse but admits to a small bit of misspeaking. Dodging the sniper rounds during a visit when it was quite clearly obvious that there were no end of media people at the same place. Graphic licence clearly has no boundaries for those who live life under the cloak.
The Obama chap appears to have been coached by the very same people who coached the husband of the misspeaking one when he was running to the job. The stupid inane open mouthed grin appear to have been lifted from the very same. The greetings, the movements and pointing seem well rehearsed. Too well rehearsed.
Life under the cloak ? There could be something to this.
