North Thanet MP Plans Wife Swap

This article in yesterday's Mail on Sunday caught my eye. Apparently Roger Gale, the Conservative MP for North Thanet, is planning to swap his wife with another MP's to get around the new rules that ban family members from working for right honourable members. Here's an extract:

'It's ironic you can shack up with an MP, but if you are married to him or have a civil partnership you get the sack,' says Suzy Gale, who licks envelopes for her husband, Roger Gale, Tory MP for Thanet.

I presume, as well as a long, licky tongue, that a good bark, a wet nose and a propensity for scraping your arse along the living room carpet are also prerequisites for the post, Suzy. On no, haha, my mistake, Suzy's the one on the left! Sxx.

cozy, very cozy.

I am assuming that these roles will be advertised so the great unwashed will be allowed to apply, equal opportunities and all that?

Suzy Gale bleating on on the Jeremy Vine show right now. Poor love, where else in Thanet will she find a job that pays £40,000 a year?

Where is Roger going to find someone as hard working & dedicated as Suzy? I think it's an absolute disgrace that her job is threatened, no-one seems to mind builders, butchers or funeral directors employing their families!

The difference is, Peabrain, that our taxes don't pay butchers, builders or funeral directors.

For far too long our money has been treated as an entitlement by these spongers who, in my opinion, are not much better than the professional benefits claimants you see wandering around Thanet.

At least they're polite...

I want my taxes to pay the best person for the job; I don't give a damn what their relationship is.

Does that make sense knob-head?

And Suzy Gale is the best person for the job? How the feck do you know that, cockhead? From what I've seen of you, the only qualifications you're interested in are flabby funbags and saggy arses.

In fact how can anyone tell whether she's the best person for the job? It's never been advertised. I'm sure there are hundreds of people in Thanet with better qualifications than having the dubious honour of sharing Roger Gale's bed who would love a job that pays £40K a year.
