Poor David Wilshire - a Tory MP who was forced to resign after it emerged that he paid £100,000 in expenses to a company he owned with his girlfriend - is feeling persecuted.
How persecuted? Like the Jewish victims of the Nazis, he claims.
In a letter to his constituents (naturally sent to them at the taxpayers' expense, on Commons notepaper), he wrote:
“The witch hunt against MPs in general will undermine democracy.
It will weaken parliament - handing yet more power to governments. Branding
a whole group of people as undesirables led to Hitler's gas chambers.”
Dear Mr Wilshire: the Jews were persecuted and killed for their ethnicity and religion, not because of anything they actually did. MPs are being held to account for essentially stealing.
Start taking responsibility for your own actions. Please learn the difference.
