That's precisely the fucking point!

Whilst revelling in the severe discomfort of individual MPs' when their frauds are exposed, your humble Devil has consistently tried to point out that the expenses scandal—given relatively small sums of money involved—is less important than the exposure of a number of general, egregious principles.

Most important of these is the fact that our bastard fucking lawmakers specifically exempt themselves from the laws which they make for us. This is abso-fucking-lutely unacceptable.

Which brings me to Douglas Carswell's Thought for the Day...
A constituent emails me to ask "If MPs are now made to pay taxes on their income and assets like the rest of us, does this mean we might see more MPs demanding lower taxes?"

That, of course, is precisely the fucking point.

After all, our MPs are paid by the state, and the state then goes through the expense of recouping tax from them: on the face of it, this seems a bit of a waste of money.

But it is not.

Because, if MPs can see how much they lose through tax, then they have some idea of how their stupid fucking policies affect ordinary voters. That is why, for instance, it is so fucking disgusting that they should exempt themselves from the databases that they are attempting to force on the rest of us, or that they ensure that they needn't pay tax on benefits in kind.

These cunts pass laws which allows the full, coercive force of the state to be brought to bear upon us if we break them: it is thus absolutely vital that these fuckers be bound by the same laws. Instead, these bastards simply exempt themselves if they don't like the law.

Their reaction is not "I can see that this is a bad law because it is adversely affecting my life; it might be affecting my constituents the same way, so maybe we should change the law". Oh no.

Their reaction is simply to change the law so that only they themselves do not have to live by it. It's the old patrician attitude of "I'm alright, Jack, but it's tough tits for you, you fucking prole scum bastard."

That is the way in which the vast majority of our MPs view us: a prole scum bastards, fit only to be milked so that MPs might have enough money to rest their well-padded arseholes on well-padded seats.

Your humble Devil has long pointed out that MPs use our money to insulate themselves from the effects of their laws, and it is not always as blatant as the exemption from tax on benefits in kind. Oh no: sometimes it is subtler then that.

After all, if these cunts put a massive tax rise on booze*, do you seriously think that the price of a pint in the House of Commons bars will go up?

Will it fuck.

No: the only thing that will go up is the fucking subsidies—which was £5.5 million last year: 15% higher than the year before. It must be nice to use other people's money—money that you have stolen from them under the threat of force (that only you can wield)—in order to insulate yourself from the consequences of your own laws, eh?

Fucking hellski, what a bunch of fucking cunts they are...

* If you think that the Tories are going to stop this trend of taxing our pleasures to fuck, perhaps you should remember James Brokenshire, Tory MP.

If taxes start to eat into their take-home pay they will put up their own wages to compensate. Or invent a new expense--like cosmetics for appearing on TV Bastards.

Anyway what was the piss up like?

I think we should have transparency.

Though MPs are not exempt from the tax laws. Also not all MPs are abusing the system and many have at least some integity.

Anon,

MPs exempted themselves, through a provision in law, from the tax laws on benefits-in-kind: had they not done that, much of this disgusting troughing simply would not have been possible.

Oh, and there may be some uncorrupt ones in there—but those who did not actively abuse the system were complicit.
