All morning a stream of self-interested fake-MPs have followed one another on R4's 'Today' in a united chorus of mutual preservation; the important thing is that the Commons, having decided to oppose the will of voters and to renege on their own manifestos, comes together to unite in the face of voter anger. Yes, today is all about these frauds, these fakes, this craven rabble of narcissists and half-wits, demonstrating that they have more in common with eachother than with the voters they tricked in 2017 into putting them there.
But they can't hide forever from the Hustings. At some stage they must face the voters they tricked and defrauded. And judging from the polls, they will face a voter anger many times greater than when caught with their half-wit snouts in the expenses trough. Parliamentary self-interest and the previous bent Speaker, Gorbals Mick, saved many from prison - and the contrast was not lost on the public of a 2011 rioter banged up for a year for stealing a pack of bottled water worth under a fiver and MPs who had stolen tens of thousands in upscale furnishings, household goods, fraudulent claims and swapping getting away Scot free.
Let them wriggle and squirm in mutual self-pleasure today, safe in their privileged isolation from the reality of their betrayal of Britain's voters. Their reckoning will come.
