The decline of the mainstream parties

As Miliband dreams up even more soundbite policies to contort his rubbery lips around - the only one I can remember concerns payday loans - and as Cameron polishes up the skills he learned as a public relations spiv - like pretending he won't subsidise French public spending by another £1.7 billion, when he has no other option - and as Clegg keeps trying to portray himself as more of a socialist than Miliband, causing his party to lose votes as fast as UKIP gains them - the old parties dig their own graves even deeper by shredding their expenses records -

"All records of MP expenses prior to 2010 have been destroyed, preventing any further investigations in to them. A committee headed up by Speaker Bercow ruled that the records should be destroyed after 3 years to comply with data protection laws despite employment records being kept until an MP turns 100...There is nothing in the Data Protection Act that requires paperwork relating to MPs' expenses to be destroyed in anything less than 6 years, this is just a cover-up."

Which is great news for UKIP, the Greens, the SNP, Plaid Cymru and the Monster Raving Loonies - both the Official Party and its splinter groups.
