Privilege my arse

Excuse my language, but are Jim Devine MP, David Chaytor MP and Elliot Morley MP taking he piss? Apparently they' have lawyers working for them who are arguing that Parliamentary Privilege in the 1689 Bill of Rights protects them from being prosecuted for fraud over dodgy expenses claims such as taking taxpayer money to pay for a non-existent mortgage, or submitting receipts with fake VAT numbers on them.

If only us proles could use arguments like that when the Police and/or Taxman comes knocking?
