Being Let Off Lightly!

So the Scottish Parliament's Standards Committee think Wendy Alexander should be suspended from Holyrood for just one day for failing to declare a number of donations to her Labour Leadership election campaign fund as well as accepting impermissable donation - and all for an uncontested leadership election!

Talk about being let off lightly!

In most ordinary peoples business affairs this sort of misappropriation of funds would lead to a police investigation and maybe even fraud charges.

So bendy Wendy should be thanking her lucky stars tonight that MSP's are such a jolly decent bunch and have decided to let her off lightly. I'm not so sure the electorate will be quite so kind when the time comes for them to pass their judgement!
