Yeah, I read that but what riles me is that Hughes is our local MP and Ministry of Sound have him in their pocket (the LD's campaign office is at MoS) and Cable is always banging on (quite rightly) about tax loop holes ... I just don't know how they can take the money with one hand and be so high and mighty on the other. None of us want to see loopholes exploited but to me these hypocritical politicians are even worse than the tax dodgers!

I sure hope you can handle this much truth.

'Determined and Delusional' says it like it is.

I think you will find Mr Farage does say it like it is and does so in a world where the truth is not made welcome.

Urbanite is right...the lot of them are a bunch of dishonest self-servers. i cite the expenses scandal as evidence. Hughes is no better, or worse than any of the others. Those who put faith in politicians deserve to be let down by them

Simon Hughes in house of commons debate on health and social care bill reported as saying "I'm clear that there is still a huge amount of concern among constituents which is partly because of misrepresentations and misunderstandings. This is not a privatisation bill or a carve up of the NHS bill."

Misrepresentations? Misunderstandings? Surely not.. has simon hughes been spending too much time with andrew lansley?

Aaah but he didn't feel that his constituents deserved the facts so as to make a judgment themselves,well of course there would be "misrepresentations" and "misunderstandings."
