I’m grateful to Steve at Skwawkbox for relieving me of some of the pressure from the multitude of article-worthy material currently flinging itself towards Vox Political with gay, “It’s Summer!”, abandon. I was going to write an article (or part of one) about the revelation that Grant Shapps tried to get officials in the Department for Communities and Local Government to cover up emails that showed he had misled Parliament. The story is here: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/tory-chairman-grant-shapps-told-aides-to-suppress-emails-that-showed-he-misled-mps-8650263.html
So that’s Cameron, LieDS, Shapps (if that’s what he’s calling himself today), Jeremy Misprint Hunt – all guilty of lying to Parliament, which is contempt of Parliament, as revealed on Voc Political a few weeks ago. Perhaps, besides writing to the UKSA, we should write to the Speaker and the Standards Committee and ask why they’re turning a blind eye to it.
