pledge cards

apparently according to Jordan everyone is lying about the pledge cards.

Frankly I cant se how anyone who isn’t a labor party member (and thus in a sense the defendant) could possibly outright think labour is innocent. Sure maybe you could be ambivalent in the way the Thai are generally ambivalent about corruption, but supporting it??

anyway his points are

to translate
"we discovered a loophole!" [maybe]
"we did it last time so we should be allowed to do it again!"
"besides, its legal even if the law says it isn't!"
the people giving out the money (Parliamentary Service) are responsible for how it is spent [ok there is something to that]
"we did it but you cant be critical of us doing it until the law officially agrees with you"

hmm.. not convinced
