David Wilshire, the disgraced Conservative MP, has compared the treatment of politicians over their expense claims to the plight of Jews in Nazi Germany.

Mr Wilshire, who was forced to resign after paying more than £100,000 in expenses to his own company, said the “witch hunt” against MPs “will undermine democracy”.

“Branding a whole group of people as undesirables led to Hitler’s gas chambers,” he added.

The MPs could certainly do with a bit of final solutioning. Why do we have about 800 of 'em in the Commons and Lords when there are only about 300 in the US Senate and Congress and their population is 5 times ours?

The way the regions are broken up, ours is more representative and fine grained.

Bad anology though, people wouldnt mind if MPs where gassed.

I thought Godwin's law meant that references to Hitler only started after page 2?
