And they want re-election?

Three Labour MPs being investigated for expenses fraud are arguing that they should not be prosecuted because their suspect claims are covered by parliamentary privilege.

The MPs have hired legal experts to assert that the 1689 Bill of Rights protects them from prosecution.

Some just do not know when to zip it.
contend that the House of Commons rule book on expenses is “privileged” and cannot be subject to scrutiny by the courts

Above the law, eh?

We'll see what the voters say about that.
