Gordon Brown's authority in crisis as Labour MPs defy him on expenses - Telegraph

Gordon Brown's authority in crisis as Labour MPs defy him on expenses - Telegraph: "Ann Widdecombe, the former Tory minister, also hit out at the way Sir Thomas had been allowed to change the rules retrospectively. She said: “If any other employer did this, he would be up before a tribunal.”"

*********************************************************

If the MPs need a 'tribunal' they should try the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS), the FOS applies eveything retrospectiveley without any of the time limits afforded by common law, or natural justice as some describe what everyone else receives but those regulated by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) or 'previous regulators' do not.

And what makes us mad is that these MPs actually voted for the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 which imposed this regime which is in breach of human rights, Article 6 in particular.

One rule for them and another rule for the rest of us.
