On the SS Helengrad , the ship is about to sink, and the rats are already deserting.
We have seen would-be leader Steve Maharey announce his departure for academia- and no wonder after the bosses are set for big pay rises.
And this, after Mr Tips recently noted Maharey would have some say over the university gaining some extra research funding.
He certainly has got his snout in the trough.
Now, Liarbour Party President Mike Williams says more MPs "than is required" for rejuvenation are set to quit the party.
Previously, he had spoken of 8-10 departing MPs as being the number for this.
So, let's get this right, almost 20% of the 50-odd Liarbour MPs is nececessary for rejuvenation.
Liarbour is obviously full of so much 'dead wood.' No wonder the ship is sinking. No wonder the rats are deserting.
Showing my charitable side, as Tracey Watkins noted some like David Benson-Pope are keen to hang on because they might have nowhere else to go. Let is hope they fare better than former Alliance MP John Wright, who had to return to panel beating.
