Eric Illsley faces expulsion over expenses fraud

Look on the bright side.

At least we know now that one of them really is a crook rather than just suspecting that all of them are.

  1. With Chaytor already sentenced, if Illsley gets banged up, here are some interesting statistics with which to play:

    Probability that a Brit is in gaol: 0.15%

    Probability that a politician is in gaol: 0.30% or twice the average rate.

    Probability of a Labour politician elected to the Commons in 2005 being in gaol: 0.57% (nearly four times the national average)

    What the true rate should be is anyone’s guess.

    Makes one think, no?

  2. I think they are only going to put a tiny sample in jail. I think the flippers and property developers are just as immoral (e.g., the Balls, the Wintertons, Uddin)

  3. “I think they are only going to put a tiny sample in jail”

    Didn’t realise the Speaker of the House was in the frame for anything. Well, the current one anyway. Times we live in, eh?

  4. “At least we know now that one of them really is a crook rather than just suspecting that all of them are.”

    Surely these two propositions are not mutually exclusive?
