Liar Byers

Stephen "taxi" Byers—one of those corrupt ministers caught in the recent sting—is a member of the Privy Council: Guido has started a petition to Her Majesty the Queen to remove him from this privileged position. Your humble Devil has signed, and left the following message in the appropriate box...
Your Majesty, this man, like all those who line their pockets in your Parliament, has brought disgrace upon your august personage and, motivated solely by sheer personal greed, has abused his privileged position to pervert the Parliamentary process and place an unjust burden upon the citizens of this country. I implore you to act now and remove him from the Privy Council—a venerable institution which this man, Byers, has sullied with his venality.

You too can sign the petition. If you want to.

Personally, any and all opportunities to make these people understand how much we all despise them is, in my view, worth undertaking...

Stephen Byers may just be the biggest asshat ever to grace Westminster, which really is an epic achievement when you think about it. For services to comedy and sheer fuckwittery I take my hat off too him. And let's be honest, you've got to be impressed by the fact that he got people to pay him to do stuff considering that the man couldn't find his arse with both hands, a set of written instructions and a diagram.

It's the "I'm just like a taxi" bit that really sent me over the edge.

And its still bothering me that given numerous Lords and MPs have shown to be open to doing "favours" for a bit of loose change, why our supposedly wonderful "intelligence" services don't take an interest.

Is not as if it isn't widely known that the most common cover for an operative is that of a businessman/woman, and a few grand here and there is pocket money for most intelligence agencies.

This reminds me of the old joke about the prostitute. Having clearly established "what type of person" they are, we don't have to haggle over the price as we already have an idea of what our beloved ex-ministers charge.

Rather than let large vested interests buy off these people, we should view this as an opportunity. Perhaps we could have a whip around so that small vested interests could get some useful policies through, such as (as a start) support for enterprise and massive simplification of the UK tax system.

I bet the one really screaming "f*ck!" will be Butterfill, who is watching the ermine robe and all that entails float away, never to return.

Wow, another day another story about a bent cnut politician.

They never learn, do they?

For what its worth, signed the petition.

"They never learn, do they?"

Well, they never really face any proper consequnces, do they?

Byers is a small fish. NuLab's main charateristic is a lust for money - epitomised by the reverence Blair-Mandelson have for the rich and their own efforts to join the club through corrupt leverage of political connections. They are all at it none more so than Blair.

Middle Seaxe said...

It could be argued that prostitutes provide a service.

What exactly do these politicos provide?

Yet another hypocrisy meter exploded when I saw Mandleson describing the whole affair as grubby on the news just now. Cogs, springs and sherds of metal all over the front room.

JuliaM - the problem is that they learned a long time ago that they are untouchable. All the suspensions and holier than thou criticisms from their peers are just positioning. They continually get away with it and they know they will.

In order for them to understand how much we despite them, surely they must first learn how to listen?

Wasn't it Byers who stole a rail company and then lied about it?

And while you're about it, perhaps pressurize your PPCs to press for a referendum.

talwin said...

I'm now reading comments about how foolish they must have been not to spot the scam. More likely that this caper is so fucking commonplace that their antennae didn't even begin to register on the I'd-better-fucking-watch-it-here meter.

Appealing to mrs e winsor stretches the bounds of credulity,for she is head of the whole criminal cartel,who else would abolish themselves unless they had a better offer,she is the new world order,which is why she sold us down the river without a second thought.All the family are bilderburgers/pilgrims ,and nick the greek has his sticky fingers in ostensibly humanitarian programs,along with prince bernhard,which turn out to be meerly a front for grabbing resources worldwide through the WWF,which has control of 10% of the surface of the planet,with links to CIA/MI5/SAS/MI6/1001 club which is run by the privy council.And still you all wonder how they get away with it!

These blighters need shooting, the whole lot of 'em.

Let's get rid of careerist politicoes, lets insist on a measure of ethics and morality when we select candidates, and ensure that the salary is £30k per annum, a free travel pass, second class, a free canteen dispensing basic canteen fare at profit cost, the Westminster bars run by Wetherspoons and commercial prices charged, and that's it, NO EXPENSES, nothing else.

George,

Agree.( Including the shoot them bit ). Although I think you would have to cover off accommodation in London - e.g. get Travelodge to build something.

Yes, but is he a cunt?

They are venal bastards the lot of them with maybe a handful of exceptions. Despise them? That doesn't come close!

VicolaW said...

I read in the news that other MPs are furious with Byers et al for being stupid enough to get stung in this manner. Which just about sums up the whole politico attitude really. Doesn't matter what shit you get up to as long as you don't get caught and ruin it for the rest of us...

None of em give a fuck,it`s every man for himself...fuck em...better still jail em! then they might start to take notice..
