Leslie Rowe, an accountant running for the seat currently held by William
Hague has vowed to clean up the “cesspit” of Westminster if elected.
Rowe, representing the Green Party, is challenging Hague in the Richmond,
North Yorkshire constituency and plans to use his accounting expertise to
MPs bending the rules on expenses.
“At the moment Westminster is a cesspit of dirty money sticking to the hands
of those who can stand the stench long enough to grab it,” said Rowe.
“Perhaps this explains why there are so few accountants in Parliament? “
We need to change all that. We need more honest accountants in Parliament.
People who can challenge the status quo and start cleaning up Westminster.”
