Constitutional - misconduct in public office

 The expenses scandal under Gordon Brown ex-pm still needs to be resolved.  Lord Straw had a conflict of interest when he prevented 400+ MPs being processed for misconduct in public office with a handful being prosecuted for criminality.  Lord Straw removed the word “responsibility” and added the word “transparent” – he did not have the power constitutionally to do this because he was also caught up in the expenses scandal, thereby having a conflict of interest.  So also was David Cameron and Gordon Brown per se.  All 400+ MPs including Lord Straw need to be processed for misconduct in public office.

     Further, when there is a scandal on this scale all MPs should have been suspended and the second place positions at the General Election should have stood forward. There has to be a reason for getting second place in a democracy and it should not be necessary to hold a bi election because an MP is caught in a scandal and has to resign.
