An opportunity has arisen for David Cameron to put some clear blue water (or at least, some murky brown swill) between his troughers and those in the Labour party.
One thing is clear about the latest batch of troughers reported by the Daily Telegraph: these bastards are fucking rolling in it.
No mortgages, multiple properties owned outright. Swimming pools. Roses extensive enough to need tens of bags of horseshit. They've been sitting on their country estates gnawing on the bones of peasants (yes, they eat their staff when they're too old to toil on the estate), watching their wealth grow, not frantically 'flipping' grubby little flats to top up their income.
The Labour MP's who've had to work their way up the property ladder (and when did they find the time to do that, for fuck's sake?) can't just jump off the merry-go-round. The money they claimed is tied up, in property that's still losing value (cheers Gordon). They can apologise (ha!), resign or run around clucking, but what they'll find it very hard to do is to write a cheque for tens of thousands by the end of this week.
For the "Tory Grandees", on the other hand, this is a piece of piss. In the same way as Bankers can ostentatiously pay themselves a dollar a year because they took in 10 million a year for the last five fucking years, these buggers can probably find this much money down the back of their great-great-great grandfather's Chesterfield.
So Dave, tell each of the egregious eight to pay back their claims, immediately and in full, and very publicly.
Then ask, over and over again, whenever you see a microphone, why the Labour MP's aren't doing the same.
UPDATE: smart man, that Dave. The Telegraph says they've paid the money back. See CF gloating here.
