Politics Home is reporting that Louise Mensch, Conservative – Corby, is urging the creation of a new ‘contempt of Parliament’ offence.
On the basis the Parliament website states that: “The UK public elects 650 Members of Parliament (MPs) to represent their interests and concerns in the House of Commons”, then Louise Mensch must be candidate ‘numero uno’ for prosecution were such an offence to be created. This is the woman who undoubtedly considers herself ‘Top Totty’ within the House of Commons and has remained slavishly loyal to her party as it is her self-proclaimed wish to be promoted – and to hell with the interests and concerns of her constituents.
Were Mensch to get that which she wishes then ‘numero due’ for prosecution must be Chris Bryant who believes that: “Surely to god, it is time that we asserted the freedom of Parliament – in fact, the rights of Parliament”. Err, is not the freedom and the rights of Parliament the ability to make and unmake the laws of the United Kingdom? Sovereignty? European Union? Where the lack of sovereignty of the UK is concerned, there is only one man who ‘underpants‘ for that and that is Chris Bryant.
The sooner Mensch, Bryant and approximately 600+ other ‘careerists’ can be recalled to be met with the toe end of their electorate’s boot, the sooner this nation might begin the process of putting ‘Great’ back in front of ‘Britain’.
