The peer informally known as “Barrenness Udder” initially appeared to have escaped from charges of milking the taxpayer. In a display of asininity remarkable even for him, the perpetually useless Keir Starmer has declared that guidance issued by the Clerk of the Parliaments – guidance, mind! – rendered the law irrelevant. If anyone else ran their own company, they could simply write “guidance” that defrauding customers and suppliers was perfectly acceptable behaviour, and the towering intellect of Keir Starmer would regard that as sufficient to make a successful prosecution unlikely.
It is hard to conceive how someone with the intellectual gifts that Keir Starmer possesses manages to remember to breathe without assistance.
It does really make me wonder what on Earth you have to do to be prosecuted nowadays:
Mr Starmer said in the course of the Scotland Yard investigation, evidence had been obtained from her neighbours in Maidstone and from companies supplying utility services, such as water, gas and electricity.
So, it was pretty clear that she was never there. And yet this is not actually enough to press charges.
I do so hope that if I ever transgress, Mr Starmer gets to decide my fate.
