At some point in the first half of 2010 there will be a General Election. At that point, upwards of 120 MP’s will be off. Well off.
In fact, bloody well off.
After years of pickpocketing, mugging and shafting the taxpayer, they are about to hit the streets of Britain with their finely honed skills.
You might want to look upon it as a mass prison breakout.
They will no longer be in the Commons but on the common. But, be warned, they will still be on the take.
They know no other way.
To help you identify them, just remember this: they might look presentable and speak in concerned tones, but the ‘realpolitik’ is that they are like a cross between a spider and an octopus. They can spin a web of deceit while still keeping eight tentacles free to remove your last squid. Sorry, quid.
