Mrs Millar and the slipping standards

DOES IT BITE? DAVE I'M TALKING TO YOU!



The elephant in the room that no one seems to have noticed about the Maria Millar debacle, is the role of the supposedly 'independent', watchdog Kathryn Hudson on parliamentary expenses, who raised initial concerns about the almost £46,000 apparently embezzled by the lady from us the poor bloody taxpayer as usual, in the first place.

It seems totally bizarre to say the least that after bringing these extremely serious charges against Mrs Millar that the allegedly “independent” watchdog was rendered powerless to pursue this to what in the case of an ordinary citizen would be an inevitable conclusion.

Instead a committee of Mrs Millars peers was hastily convened who were able with impunity to cast aside all the main findings by this 'independent' office and instead impose their own pointless slap on the wrist.

This raises several scenarios. Either the watchdog was totally incompetent and had not run her investigations in a professional manner or if not the case, her powers to follow through on her findings in the case were nonexistent in which case why are taxpayers being fleeced to pay for this clearly toothless department.

At the very least the actions of MPs in so nonchalantly overturning explosive findings of this allegedly independent watchdog cast serious aspersions on her professionalism and quality of the investigations that her department conducted.

Why she has not vigoursly challenged this is inexplicable. If there is substance in her original findings and clearly, noone would make allegations like this if there wasn't then even the fact that Mrs Millar has resigned should not be an excuse to sweep the entire matter under the carpet. Rather the files should as a matter of course be handed over to the police so that Mrs Millar may be subject to the same laws in this regard as the rest of us mere mortals.


AND WHAT WAS MR CAMERONS  FINAL SAY ON THE MATTER ABOUT SOMEONE WHO FLEECED THE TAXPAYERS AND ATTEMPTED TO BYPASS THE SUPPOSEDLY INDEPENDENT WATCHDOG?

“I hope that you will be able to return to serving the Government on the Front bench in due course”

 What breathtaking contempt for ordinary peoples verdict on this matter!

WELL MR CAMERON THE22nd of MAY IS APPROACHING FAST AND WE THE TAXPAYERS WILL GET OUR CHANCE TO HAVE OUR SAY ON THIS AND OTHER MATTERS
