Wendy Alexander's Resignation

After reading the FC Blog Wendy Alexander has been shamed into standing down as the leader of the Labour Party in Scotland!

Right: Who's Laughing Now?

Now if only other politicians caught with their hands in the till would stand down...

Yet resignation of ministerial post isn't enough. Wendy, like Peter 'Permatan' Hain and all the others, should be sacked as a member of parliament.

At the moment the signal we're getting is that cheating, illegality and/or embezzlement results in self-imposed demotion.

Like any self-regulation it's limp-wristed, weak and does nothing to stop future infringements.

So Wendy, well done for stepping down, but as no-one will make you, now's the time to show you are honest: resign as an MSP.

Unfortunately this type of despicable behaviour is endemic throughout society. People don't take responsibility for their actions anymore and try and worm out of their self-inflicted predicaments by utilising any reason and/or excuse imagineable.

Only this week this news item popped up:-
Psychiatrist who let schizophrenic out to kill wants £300,000 payout

No love this needs to happen. Firstly, if you had any professsional integrity you would resign due to the fact that you were responsible for letting somebody out to murder. Secondly, if you don't possess these qualities your employer needs to sack you for your failings in your job and for bringing your profession into disrepute. Thirdly, you need to be tried for medical negligence. Fourthly, if anybody is going to get any money it should be the victim's family.

Going back to the issue of Wendy Alexander I think MSP stands for MY SLEAZE PORTFOLIO. Once again the field of politics has been turned into a laughing stock via this latest sleazewave! If she had any decorum or integrity she would resign immediately as a MSP. However, she hasn't and she won't. Neither has her party.Will they sack her or de-select her? I very much doubt it.

Remember the old Tory cad Cecil Parkindson harping on about family values at their conference many moons ago, only to be outed a couple of weeks later as having a child out of wedlock via an affair with his secretary!

Just read this quote from the murdering Jewish butcher Lenin:-
...Divide the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance. Destroy the people's faith in their natural leaders by holding up the latter to ridicule, contempt and obloquy. Always preach true democracy but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible. Encourage government extravagance, destroy its credit, produce fear with rising prices, inflation and general discontent. Forment unnecessary strikes in vital industries, encourage civil disorders and foster a soft and lenient attitude on the part of government towards such disorders....
