Another One Bites the Dust

There is, perhaps, some hope for justice after all.

Southwark Crown Court has been busy today, with sitting MP Eric Illsley pleading guilty to false accounting relating to his expenses, and Edward Woollard, the dipshit who threw a fire extinguisher off the roof of Millbank Tower during the student protests last year, was jailed for 2 years and 8 months.

It is likely that Illsley will also face a custodial sentence, as the former MP David Chaytor was delightfully sent down for 18 months for the same charges. A custodial sentence of more than 12 months would also trigger a by-election in his Barnsley Central constituency. Pity he's sitting on a majority of 11,093 - a Labour hold is the likely outcome, even if they are punished for supporting a scumbag.

Nice to see the bastards go down.

I'm personally looking forward to the trials of Elliot Morley and Jim Devine, the other two bastards who went to the Supreme Court to determine whether the law applied to them...

Slice n' dice 'em, me gal.
