our prisons are already overcrowded , and in any case i hardly think it will change him as a personI'd prefer a short prison sentence followed by a lifetime ban from any public office for all MP's of any party charged with expenses offences. They work for us and we paid for this largesse.
Quite- anyone else convicted of taking £125,000 off the state would get more than a short sentence. I maintain that in the specific case of MP's, absolute sentence length can be traded off against the ban from being in public office for life- that will hit pretty hard.I don't really give a **** to be honest.
If he blagged that much cash from the tax payer he deserves a spell with her majesty's nastiest bastards.
