    Looks like they are gonna get an article 32 and then a long stretch of jail time.

    Why the hell would MPs even think of doing such a thing when they know what will happen to them or maybe they weren't thinking longer then their nose so to say.

    Notice the ages, 20, 20, and 20. They sound like they had half a brain between them.
