If you think Maria Miller should resign, or pay back the full amount she owes, please sign this petition and make that spineless toff Cameron do what the people want for change.

This 'witch hunting' accusation against people who think she should go is a familiar one. They used it against people who thought the bankers should pay for their greed instead of blaming people on benefits and the disabled. They're all such nice people, aren't they, our betters?

And still it goes on: Cameron holds out the prospect of another job after a stop in the sin bin (just like housing benefit scrounger David Laws) as if really she's done nothing wrong and it's all in the game.

Maria Millers resigned reluctantly citing pressure of work and needing to spend more time with her money, I mean family.
Now there's a vacancy in the Cabinet for a 'posh' bird with an interest in 'colture' who is able to deal with a thick boss on a daily basis, oh, and must have a head for figures I guess ! There'll be plenty in the trough, I mean queue.

Why is she not being prosecuted for stealing tax payers money?

Good luck to Maria. We could all make a few quid if we do the research into benefits. Try to plan in advance for job loss, care home or death. Might be morally wrong but legal.

She's a Tory. It's natural for them to steal and swindle.

8miles from home, how is researching what you may be entitled to the same as fiddling you expenses and making a mint out of a house you've conned the taxpayer into paying for? You lost me.

Let's just say Clifford "You just don't get it."

What he means Clifford,is that stealing from the taxpayer is actually perfectly OK. Everybody has the right to steal money from the taxpayer.
Those on welfare are completely different though, because they're stealing from the taxpayer.
Why is that so hard to understand?

I get it now 8 miles. What you're saying is when a Tory is caught fiddling her expenses blame the people on benefits. Sorry I was so slow.

She is still an MP on a fat salary. It is only her cabinet job she's resigned from.

Don't forget her severance bonus ! She probably will take it - circa£17k I believe.

Clifford you are quite right, though the amount of money being fiddled is so much more than a benefit scrounger (not my choice of term). She's going to end up back in the cabinet doing something else once the air is cleared. i think the Tory government don't consider expenses to be a fiddle, it's just normal to them., that's why they underestimated the public view.

They were ALL at it, bastian. Ed Millband only shouted back at Cameron, what Cameron had said to him years before !

I'm under no illusion that it's only Tories involved, though it's interesting how it ends up: MacShane (Labour) prison; Laws (LibDem) back as a minister; Miller (Tory) Cameron says he hopes she'll be back.

I really don't understand why they'd want her back knowing that the public consider her a liar and a thief.
