Crime News: During a tough speech on crime yesterday, David Cameron promised to ‘crack down’ on the ‘hoody MPs’ who swear at the police and bunk trains.
The PM has had a difficult few days, with Andrew Mitchell quitting as chief whip after swearing at a policeman and George Osborne trying to get out of paying his train fare. Other reports suggesting William Hague held a ‘Skins style’ house party that was crashed by his MySpace friends are yet to be confirmed.
“The government needs to get these people back to living normal, decent lives,” said Cameron. “MPs found drinking white cider in the park will get a good clip around the ear and sent to bed without any supper.”
“No longer will I tolerate members of Parliament hanging around shopping centres, yelling insults at the public and possibly smoking the drug marijuana. Hoodies will be banned in Westminster, no matter how much sulking or door slamming MPs do.”
Cameron also suggested other methods to deal with errant MPs, such as sending them to their offices to think about what they’ve done and making them get a part time job so they appreciate what it’s like to work for a living.
