Default The Druggie Gay Minister, The Bank, The Charity and Labour Party.

So what do we make of Paul Flowers then - apparently he was arrested this morning.

How on earth did he get away with it for so long? Chairman of the Co-Op bank? Lent and donated hundreds of thousands to the labour party? Fiddled his expenses while with a charity, bought crack or crystal meth or something from street dealers, sent messages to rent boys saying he can only manage one a night!

You couldn't make this up, how did such a guy pass due diligence on his job at the Co-Op?

Oh and the drink driving.

Wow.

I'm thinking he'll be found dead within a month or so.

Maybe he thought acting like both a corrupt politician and a city high flier = rock star status.

It should be a shocking grade A political scandal but, nowadays, seems run of the mill. I do wonnder what impression he gave off generally. I'm guessing very macho and there are a few surprised colleagues.

I think the Labour Party should be pilloried, not only did they get loads of donations but Ed Balls (I think) is filmed saying "I'll be the Co-op's chancellor".

More distasteful antics from the labour party, but after all their lies over the years the uk populace would STILL vote them back in.

Where is Boris when we need him?

Toronto will likely be looking for a new mayor soon so at least he has some job options in the offing.
