Readers may have missed this from Rory Bremner on Tuesday 25th Feb 2014 making an appearance on Newsnight, presented by Jeremy Paxman:
“We do have conviction politicians nowadays, in the sense that we have politicians with convictions. Like Chris Huhne and Denis MacShane and people like that.”
We have our own convicted politicians still operating within the Labour Party in Rotherham. In my view Jahangir Akhtar’s conviction for a crime of violence and thuggery is far more serious than either Huhne or MacShane’s dishonesty!
