The Fraud Act 2006

This morning the Daily Mail carries an excellent editorial whereby it quotes the provisions of the Fraud Act 2006 and names Jacqui Smith, Geoff Hoon and Tony McNulty as being in contradiction of the Act.

It continues by asking why these MP's have managed to avoid prosecution? I think the answer is quite simple. No one individual is powerful enough to take on the vast number of MP's who appear to be guilty of the type of fraud outlined by the Daily Mail. Yesterday the same editorial called Jacqui Smith, our Home Secretary, 'a liar and a thief'.

I get the feeling that someone is trying to pick a fight so why doesn't the paper go the whole hog and take out a private prosecutiion against the people that they consider to be in breach of the 'Fraud Act'. As I see it only someone as powerful as a newspaper, or the representative of one, would have the resources to see it through.

What I would give to see this lot in court under oath defending their actions!
