Well, i came across this well written letter which should in my opinion be sent to number 10 Downing Street just to remind Cameron of what its like to
accuse someone of something... what is in this letter is true to the core and total Hypocracy!!
here is a little snippet from this letter (i can't copy and paste it all here according to ATS rules)
Michael Gove, whose wet-lipped rage was palpable on Newsnight last night. This is the Michael Gove who confused one of his houses with another of
his houses in order to avail himself of £7,000 of the taxpayers’ money to which he was not entitled (or £13,000, depending on which house you
think was which).
Or Hazel Blears, who was interviewed in full bristling peahen mode for almost all of last night. She once forgot which house she lived in, and
benefited to the tune of £18,000. At the time she said it would take her reputation years to recover. Unfortunately not.
But, of course, this is different. This is just understandable confusion over the rules of how many houses you are meant to have as an MP. This
doesn’t show the naked greed of people stealing plasma tellies
What i say is please look at yourselves first before charging and sentencing all who were involved in these riots!!
What's the saying 'Preach what you teach' or something like that....

I completely AGREE with the sentiment of your thread................ The MP's are out on the streets trying to appear all 'high and mighty' and
yet it is because of the low standars set by them and to be honest ALL OF US that frustrations in society boil over.......
I am NOT SUGGESTING for one minute that punishments are weak and the Looters are let off BUT I do think that most of the western world desire for
Consumerism and worshipp of the $ or £ is also the main cause of the divide in our societies..
One further point is this......WHY do the courts currently processing the 'looters' get each and every one to write down ''why they did it'''
along with their names..........that surely is a start to understanding the root causes here..........
I have already been in touch with tptb about this as a way of ''understanding'' what has happened !!
Those in parliament who have abused the system need removing, and could have been in the last election, but that doesn’t take away anything from
their criticism of the looters.
We shouldn’t dismiss the response from government and the police just because some of them are hypocrites, I don’t think that serves anyone.
And just to point out that it isn’t the whole system that is rotten, for example the last election returned 233 new MPs completely untarnished by
the expenses scandal and of those who remained not all were tarnished in the first place.
