The MP for The Wrekin, in Shropshire, has been arrested after an alleged incident in central London.

Conservative Mark Pritchard, 48, was interviewed by the police on December 2 after an allegation of rape. He was bailed and has not been charged with any offence.

Isn’t it interesting how “one rule for them, another rule for us” works even in the UK’s governing party?

If this backbencher can be arrested for a serious offence, why is George Osborne allowed to go free after he fiddled his expenses? Why is Iain Duncan Smith not facing charges relating to the deaths of benefit claimants?

    Also… why did he not suffer “the perp walk” that such arrests usually bring? And why did it take till the 4th before the MSM broke the story when usually such offences would be broken on the day of arrest?

    Talking of embezzling expenses: Vaisey should have been charged with fraud and false accounting (submitting invoices for “office” furniture, which was in fact antique furniture for his home): Hunt should have been charged with fraud – he’s the corrupt character who is trying to destroy the NHS, but when caught embezzling expenses came up with the lame, childlike excuse that he didn’t understand the rules. I could go on but there isn’t enough room.

        IDS(S) won’t get charged with anything,he’ll walk away from this job scot free,the ruling elite seem to be able to do what they want with complete impunity.
        Its the same old story,one law for them,another one for the rest of us.
        I hope he has a horrible xmas and santa trashes his mansion ,robs the family silver and uses IDS(S) bed as a toilet.
        Everytime that smug low life pops up on my tv i have to switch channels or turn it off,cannot have his face and words full of lies in my home
