This is an unfolding story in the UK and seems to be escalating to extraordinary proportions and is well worth our American friends pay close attention.

I think this maybe the UK's version of the 'Night of the Long Knives". If there are any more than the many MPs already being grilled and facing possible criminal charges, we might as well consider this entire event playing before our eyes an effective coup d'etat.

We have always known our MPs are on the make and using their expense claims to make money. While I take the view that this activity is unethical, I would prefer they dip their hands into the tax payer's wallet than be turned into performing seals for lobbying organisations and agents of foreign influence as you have in the US.

When ministers step down from office we have always known they take up directorships of major corporations they had previously offered major billion dollar contracts while in office. Since quitting office, Tony Blair has become a millionaire more than several times over on the back of after dinner speeches in US on right wing and corporation speech circuits. This is how politicians make their wealth in democracies and we have grown accustomed to this.

So why the purge of MPs in the UK, particularly those critical of prime minister Brown's stewardship of the economy, his police state activity and support of Israel? Even Gerald Kaufman the, Father of the House and arch critic of Brown's foreign policy, has become unstuck.

Is it a possibility that Brown, who is in serious trouble with possible leadership challenges, has has set fire to parliament in the figurative sense. He was also the chancellor you might like to know.
