All Washed-Up, Ready To Go

The despicably secretive, double-dealing frenzy of the UK Parliamentary 'wash-up' is an especially disgraceful and cretinous process in the hands of the current shameful, scandal-ridden crew. That they went ahead and wallowed in it shows they've learned absolutely nothing about how to rescue their institution from the desperately low esteem in which it is held. As they huddled in their dirty little corners to snuffle out a deal, few spared a thought for the millions of individuals who put them there or the mandate they were granted. Parliamentary reforms were ditched as they cosied up to the copyright moguls and helped themselves to the tools of leak suppression.

We can only hope that this insidious wash-up process and the tawdry deals it produced will adorn the funeral pyre of this miserable, tragic saga in global political history.
"Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation . . . In the name of God, go".

I agree. Like the expenses scandal, this is too good an opportunity for educating the politicians to pass up. Each MP and Peer must be endlessly questioned about their role in last night’s activities. Were they there? How did they vote? Why? If they weren’t there, why not? Then they must be questioned on the detail. Again and again, until the embarrassment becomes excruciating. With any luck that might persuade them never to indulge in this nonsense again.
