A politician with integrity

Fucking hell!

Phil Heatley, a politician in New Zealand, immediately tendered his resignation to the Prime Minister when it appeared that a $70 receipt for two bottles of wine at a party conference had been accidentally claimed on his expenses. Heatley told the press “I believe I’ve failed to live up my own standard and for that I’m embarrassed and immensely sorry.” He immediately repaid the money.

NZ$70 is about £31 in real money.

I wonder if any troughing fuckpig reading this will even understand the concept.

MP's expenses in NZ are only supposed to be used for lambs, not lambrusco.

Calling Sterling "real money" is getting to be a joke.

Obo, they'll never even see it, let alone read it, unless you slip it between a couple of receipts for the next exenses claim.

The troughing fuckpigs we laughingly call Members Of Parliament couldn't give a shit. Unless, of course, they decide it would take a Parliamentary visit to New Zealand to investigate further. All first class flights and 5-star hotels, naturally.

Hoors and comic singers, the lot of them.

There used to behave like that here too once upon a time and not so long ago either. A time when we could cock our brows at the goings ons of the French and other continentals.

No more. If there were such a thing as a club for Banana Republics they'd be asking for our membership fees upfront in cash.

They're all crooks.
