On the other hand......

Labour MP until the party whip was withdrawn after allegations of sexual harassment.....
recently elevated to the unelected House of Lords by de Pfeffel after a mere nine years as one of Parliament's most mediocre seat moisteners.......having distinguished himself solely by openly criticising his own party leader at every turn before the sexual harassment allegations were made

Unable to stand in the last General Election because he had zero chance of winning....his future now looks rosy.

KEITHMAR : Unfortunately in some democracies these days, a change of gov't by vote does little to change the status quo.
The only way to get politicians / parties to act and vote decently in the interests of the public is to frighten them. Only when they see their highly paid nose-in-the-trough cushy lifestyle threatened will they act in the publics' interest.
And you've have to have meaningful frightners. Mass protest demonstrations of 5 million people plus, or revolution. Anything less is too wimpy.

What is really corrupt is the fact that these charges were reported to th Conservative Chief Whip 4 months ago.. Nothing seems to have been done until she reported it to another MP a month ago and finally to the police...
As she said, "Those in power were more concerned with covering for the alleged offender and the Tory party than taking her allegations to the proper authorities"

Agreed ......but it seems to be a strange culture where a "very serious" matter such as this is reported to the "line manager" before it's reported to the police.

"An MP elected to parliament in 2010 was four times more likely to be jailed than the average member of the public."
