Q: Why is this poor chap going to jail? A: Because he's not a member of parliament

Some poor bloke who ripped off his employer for half a million quid to keep his wife happy has gone to jail for 4 years.

Why? He's paid the money back. Anyhow he worked for KPMG, the monster accountants. I thought it some kind of poetic justice.

The House of Commons is awash with people who've stolen money - and have absolutely no intention of paying it back. Actually most of them are unaware they've even done anything wrong.

P.S. A man called Nick Stoate whom I have never spoken to but has the right kind of name emails me to sell his email list, starting with "Further to our earlier conversation". Berk.
