I took this off someone elses post on the other side as I think its worthy of discussion and circulation here

Without re-openning an old thread about drink driving think what the punishment for that motoring offence would be, then think about what you've just been shown. Lets also think about the punishment re a simple speeding crime, and look what happens to more serious offences.

It stinks

Looks pretty much like being fined according to ability to pay, rather than justice.

Ironically, the first 8 lowlifes probably got a free legal aid lawyer. The last two probably pled guilty by mail, because they could not afford a lawyer or the time off, and the prosecutor had a field day.

Tis the same in most of the West:(

ST --what if you swindle thousands of tax payers money and it comes to light you are guilty---sentence--you lose your job and never work again but are awarded an £80k a year pension or life---I am in total disbelief of what goes on in this country I worked since I was 15 years old payed all my own bills struggled to make ends meet for years and what do I get as a reward £6, 600 a year pension --and they have the cheek to tax me now at 20 per cent as well on it (£12 a month)--only years of scrimping and penny pinching has given me the experience to survive and beg my way through the last few years of my life--- as you can tell I am very bitter and disappointed and sure I am not alone?

I still dont understand how claiming for a mortgauge you dont have is not FRAUD.

IMHO somebody should go to prison.

I beleive the police are investigating some of the more dubious MP claims. Don't know if anyone heard but apparently MPs want councelling as morale has gone down at parliment and they fear a suicide. Guess who will be footing the bill for that lot then, us.

These MPs are a disgrace and prison is the right home for some of them, as are most of the offenders above. Posession of cocainne-£200.FFS. I have a few beers and drive home I'd be looking at 4x that.

If they gave the MPs a wing at Brixton, they could all live there while in London:D;)

And the moat at the home would have a legitimate purpose-to keep them inside behind bars :D
