I have long said that MPs are infantile. No surprise there, considering that they live entirely in a world of their own, with no responsible adult supervising them.
Like infants, when they don't get their own way, they have tantrums.
Read this piece on the bullies in Westmonster and tell me I'm wrong.
"Amid reports that up to 100 rebel Conservative MPs may defy the Prime Minister, there were claims that some had been subjected to a number of threats by Mr McLoughlin to make them toe the line.
According to one MP, ex-miner Mr McLoughlin was overheard shouting at a rebel MP: ‘This is not the f****** Oxford Union. This is not some f****** sixth-form debating society. This is the bloody House of Commons.’
Other threats allegedly included:
- Banning MPs having extra time off at Christmas.
- Giving their seat to a rival MP.
- A four-year veto on becoming a Minister.
He is expected to win tomorrow’s Commons vote on whether to let the public decide on staying in the EU. But he may pay a heavy price."
How, in their world, are they acting in the best interests of those that put them in these well paid jobs?
Read the whole thing and weep, as you learn what the EU has cost us in money alone. Forget the plethora of new legislation, thousands of regulations, and the loss of sovereignty, but wonder instead, at the stupidity of those we elected that allowed this to happen.
Pathetic. Criminal. Unforgivable.
