U.K. politics: Brown team resignations continue…Jacqui Smith leaves Cabinet post..

*

Gordon Brown shows no signs of backing away from his spending and tax hike spree even as public outrage grows and his cabinet is shuffled and the Parliament is buffeted by the expense scandal...TOTUS has increased his spending pushes  also since our Tea Parties, these political people seem to have no grasp of the divide between the opinions of the populace and their political classes…the next elections on both sides of the pond should be fun to watch….if our respective economies can tread water that long……you knew Jacqui Smith would go, I am shocked she is trying to hold her home seat, I mean expensing her hubbys pron? come on people..Michael Savage is no doubt laughing….

..She was also forced to pay back £10 she claimed for the two adult films watched by her husband, Richard Timney, who is employed as her assistant….

There is that ugly nepotism again, our Pols do it too, it sucks, so taxpayers pay for her hubby to work as her assistant AND paid for his pron!? OutRAGEOUs!!!

TimesOnline:

Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, is to stand down from the Cabinet to focus her efforts on saving her Commons seat …

…On a day when it appeared when the Prime Minister’s control of events was looking particularly shaky, it emerged that another minister was also heading for the exit. Tom Watson is standing down as Cabinet Office minister…

…in addition, three other Labour MPs – David Chaytor, Beverley Hughes and Patricia Hewitt – announced that they would be leaving the Commons at the next election, adding their names to an increasingly long list….

And a new Treasury Secretary on their Cabinet now…wait until he gets a load of Geithner, good luck getting your calls returned !

…Ms Smith’s decision to jump before she was pushed – she had been widely expected to be moved from her post – paves the way for an even broader Cabinet shake-up in a reshuffle now expected on Monday.

That reshuffle is also expected to see Alistair Darling moved from the Treasury in favour of Ed Balls, the Schools Secretary. Mr Darling, one of the Prime Minister’s oldest political allies, could be offered another senior Cabinet post, perhaps that of Foreign Secretary….
