I look forward to the advertisement for members of the new Parliamentary Standards Authority.

You will all be applying.

Won’t you?


  1. No.
    I am enjoying the present scandals too much.
    Its always a bad sign when MPs start agonising about the voters losing faith in the process which translates as "oops we must be seen to be doing something minimal or the game is up".
    The current fad is about playing into the hands of "vote Mainstream".

    Even though I regard the Greens and UKIP as nutters, its unfair to bracket them with the racist BNP.

    Its all about Choice surely. Is an honest BNP person better than a dishonest Mainstreamer.....

  2. No, I've got a bad back.

  3. No, I'm not interested.

    I assume you will be applying, then?

  4. Oh, no, I'm putting up for the body that ought to decide these things. All it needs is a change of members.

  5. The Telegraph editorial committee?

  6. I don't think that the Telegraph is edited by a committee.

    And I did say "ought to".
