I like it too, except that as well as being put to hard labour in the community, convicted MPs should wear high viz jackets with "I'm a thieving bastard" written on them and have to spend at least an hour a week in the stocks.
The wheels of justice appear to move very slowly, slow enough in fact to ensure that these cases came to a conclusion after a General Election. That does not have anything to do with the highly politicised CPS whose head is a fervent leftie, does it?
I don't know how this is all playing out amongst the plebs - you know, the ones who should, in an ideal world, have to take a test that determines if they understand the basics of our democracy. The plebs are the ones that swing Labour votes in Illsley's part of the world. I guess that, as long as Labour bangs on about "toffs" and "cuts" and they begin to worry about the cost of fags and booze and the sanctity of their benefits, then there will always be Eric Illsleys to bring our country down to the level of an African Republic.
