(Tue 9/6/15) Article: Expenses and sex scandal deleted from MPs’ Wikipedia pages by computers inside Parliament



The Expenses Scandal 2009: Remember all these crimes committed that we the People would have been imprisoned for? http://eotp.org/expenses-09/

References to ‘chauffeur-driven cars’ and a criminal arrest wiped from online biographies in run-up to election

Expense claims and a Westminster sex scandal were deleted from MPs’ Wikipedia pages by computers inside Parliament before the election, The Telegraph has found.
Details of a police arrest, electoral fraud allegation and the use of “chauffeur-driven cars” were also been wiped by people inside the Commons.
The revelation will raise suspicion MPs or their political parties deliberately hid information from the public online to make candidates appear more electable to voters.

More than a dozen online biographies of sitting MPs were doctored from computers with IP addresses owned by the Houses of Parliament in the run-up to the election.
Requests for comment were made to all the MPs in question via their party press offices, but just a handful replied to say the changes had nothing to do with them.

Anyone can edit Wikipedia, an online encyclopaedia kept up to date by users. However each change is tracked and linked to an IP address – a unique string of numbers that identifies each computer using an internet network.

By looking at the changes made by computers with IP addresses owned by the Houses of Parliament it is possible to see what edits are being made from inside the Commons.

The Telegraph has discovered persistent changes to MPs’ biographies made from Parliament in what appears to be a deliberate attempt to hide embarrassing information from the electorate.

ARTICLE: House of Perks: MPs claim record £103mn in expenses


MPs’ staff, travel and accommodation costs reached £103 million last year, up from £99 million the previous year and £95 million in 2009 – the peak of the parliamentary expenses scandal.

More than £80 million was spent on staff salaries and £11 million on office costs. The bill for accommodation, covering hotels, rented homes and utility bills, was £6.9 million, while £4.5 million were claimed for travel and subsistence.

The Democratic Unionist Party’s Jim Shannon had the biggest claim at £229,262, including £38,215 on travel and £12,126 on hotels.

The bill for MPs’ expenses reached record levels last year, as more politicians put their spouses and children on the public payroll.

A total of 170 MPs employed relatives, at a cost of more than £4 million. The previous year, 150 MPs had family members on the payroll.

Senior Conservatives who employ relations include Defence Secretary Michael Fallon and Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond. Laurence Robertson, the MP for Tewkesbury, employs his ex-wife and his wife. Anne Adams is paid £40,000 to £45,000 as a senior parliamentary assistant, while his ex-wife Susan Robertson gets paid £25,000 to £30,000 as a senior secretary.

Andy Silvester, from the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “Taxpayers will be deeply concerned that the cost of Westminster is going up again.

“David Cameron pledged to reduce the cost of politics after the excesses of the expenses scandal. Politicians must be held accountable for their promises. Combined with the ever-increasing number of peers, that promise looks increasingly difficult to keep.”

He added that there was “nothing wrong with employing family members if they’re qualified for the job, but there needs to be total transparency whenever that’s the case.”

The details were released in an annual report by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) on Thursday, which was set up to handle MPs’ pay after the 2009 expenses scandal.

In 2009, the Telegraph revealed that MPs misused their allowances for private purposes for years, causing public outrage. The political scandal resulted in arrests, resignations and dismissals, as well as public apologies and the repayment of expenses. Former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, who claimed back expenses for her husband’s adult movies, was one of the high-profile politicians that were exposed.

IPSA chairman Sir Ian Kennedy said reforms to the system had saved £58 million over four years. He said: “Such is the progress made since the scandals which came to light in 2009, our work is attracting the attention of parliaments around the world.”

This week, Marcial Boo, IPSA’s chief executive, proposed that MPs should get a 9 percent pay rise next year, arguing that MPs did an important job and should not be paid a “miserly amount.” David Cameron, whose basic salary as prime minister is £142,500, has opposed the salary increase for MPs.

The basic annual salary for MPs currently stands at £67,060, two and a half times the UK average salary of £26,500.

(2011) New Labour’s Tony Blair -fined £500 for indecent conduct with a male in public toilets

ARTICLE: Assassinating a Prime Minister's Reputation: Ten Ways to Blackmail Tony Blair

This information is scattered all over the internet. War criminal Tony Blair has thus far not denied it. 

Anthony Charles Lynton Blair (Tony Blair, former PM of the UK)

He was charged and appeared in court at Bow Street magistrates court for importunity in a public toilet with another male. He tried to get sexual favour from the other man, little did he know that the toilet was being watched by police. Blair was fined £500, and walked away with nobody knowing who he really was as he used his middle names to cover who he was. Charles Lynton is the name used, and his friends in court got him off with a fine, because he is one of them.

market traders parking protest

A group of traders in Newport have banned Labour council members from their businesses in protest over free parking being stopped.

Steve Reynolds, owner of Toy Army in Newport Market, launched the campaign after councillors voted against a motion which would have saved the city’s two-hour free parking.

Other businesses in the market have followed.

Newport Labour councillor Debbie Harvey said the move was “outrageous”.

Mr Reynolds said: “I had just had enough. It’s been one thing after another.

Considering they’re crying out for trade, banning 30-odd councillors is ridiculous”

Councillor Debbie Harvey

“We’ve been asking the council for help and relief.”

The motion was brought by opposition leader Matthew Evans urging the council to reverse its decision to axe the scheme, which allows shoppers to park for free for the first two hours in all its city centre car parks.

The motion was defeated with 10 councillors voting for it, 32 against and one abstaining.

Other businesses who have joined the campaign include Sys Barbers, Turner’s Butchers, Mr Fruit, City Fashions, Kriminal records, Negative Zone comic store and Chillis sweet shop.

Mr Reynolds said: “We’re really struggling as it is here. Myself and other traders are round about 60 to 70% down on last Christmas already.

“There’s no draw to this town as it is and this is going to do more damage. People just aren’t going to pay.”‘Absolutely outrageous’

But Labour councillor Debbie Harvey, of Alway ward, said the current administration had been left with millions of pounds of debt by the previous Conservative-Liberal Democrat administration so cutbacks had to be made.

“I think it’s absolutely outrageous. Considering they’re crying out for trade, banning 30-odd councillors is ridiculous. This definitely isn’t the way to tackle it,” she said.

“If you ask people on the street if they would rather pay 33p an hour to park or for people to lose their jobs, I’m sure 99.9% would say they would rather pay.

I proposed an alternative plan which is a voucher scheme, but it fell on deaf ears”

Councillor Chris Evans

“What they haven’t factored in is the five hours free parking between now and February.

“I feel for them but I feel for every business not just the market traders. There’s the whole of town as well but unfortunately with the debt we have got, it’s got to be tackled.

“In the current climate everyone has to tighten their belts.”

Councillor for Rogerstone Chris Evans said that he was the only Labour councillor not banned because he had abstained on the parking issue.

“The entire Labour group with the exception of myself voted to withdraw free parking. I proposed an alternative plan which is a voucher scheme, but it fell on deaf ears,” he said.

Mr Evans said the market is a council building and he had heard that some Labour councillors were disgruntled by the traders’ decision.

“But this is the consequence. The traders are at the end of their tether. They feel this potentially could be the last straw. This is make or break time for many businesses,” he said.

Ringland councillor Emma Corten told her followers on Twitter: “So I’ve just been told that as a Labour Councillor I’ve been banned from shopping in Newport Market. That’ll help, I’m sure.”

ARTICLE: Was Guy Fawkes the Last Honest Man to Pass through Westminster?

Hat tip: http://www.westernspring.co.uk/was-guy-fawkes-the-last-good-man-to-pass-through-westminster/

Imagine a government that would deliberately take millions away from the budget meant to educate its own nation’s children, while at the time use billions to send foreign aid to other nations who don’t need it?

That would be nothing less than treason. You cannot imagine any sane government doing such a thing. Think of, for example, China, or Japan, deliberately depriving its own people of an education while giving money to Korea? It just wouldn’t happen, because the Chinese and the Japanese would—rightly—regard that as nothing less than treason.

Of course, you guessed it: Britain’s House of Treason down by the banks of the old river, has done precisely that—and no-one seems to know or care.

The Tory-Lib-Dem-Labour party—because they are just all the same party—is busy with much-vaunted “budget cuts” to “save the economy” (after they and their big business bank cronies screwed it over in the first place) and one of the first cuts to be announced was in the education arena.

Any parent with university-age going children is well aware that uni fees have now rocketed from a manageable amount just two or three years ago, to an impossible £9,000 per year—and that is just for the tutoring fees, never mind books, resources, living allowances, residence and so on.

Even those students “lucky” enough to get loans, start off their working lives with tens of thousands of pounds of debt—an impossible burden which—even more importantly—makes starting a family next to impossible.

The nuts and bolts of the process are as follows: England’s university budgets were cut by £449 million in 2010, with similar cuts being added each following year. This means that over £1.3 billion has been cut in the last three years, and there is no end yet in sight. By the end of 2014, the total uni education budget cut will be cut by nearly £4 billion.

In practical terms, this means that the universities have had at least 6,000 fewer places each academic year.

In addition, research funding has been frozen and the uni buildings budget cut by 15 percent.

At the same time, the Government has announced that taxpayers will hand over £50.8 billion in foreign aid to the Third World by 2014. This translates to 61 percent of the total “spending review” cuts announced by the Government.

According to a press release issued by the Department for International Development (DFID), the total foreign aid budget will reach the targeted 0.7 percent of Gross National Income (GNI) by 2013.

This would mean a yearly spend of £12.6 billion, the DFID said.

This increased spending, the DFID said, is “in line with the UK’s international commitments to help those living in extreme poverty in our world. Over the course of the Spending Review period, the Department for International Development will increase resource spending by 35 percent in real terms, and increase capital spending by 20 percent in real terms.”

This means that the foreign aid budget was £8.4 billion in 2010, £8.7 billion in 2011, £9.1 billion in 2012, and will be £12.0 billion in 2013, and £12.6 billion in 2014—totalling £50.8 billion by the end of 2014.

So there you have it: cut the education budget by £4 billion, but boost the foreign aid budget by £50 billion.

Who would dare call it treason?  I for one, and I am increasingly becoming convinced that the last honest man to pass through the halls of Westminster was indeed Guy Fawkes.

(2012) Liberal Democrat Would-be M.P. Vincent McKee -GUILTY OF 25TH FRAUD OFFENCE

A MAN who stood as an MP in Coventry has been found guilty of another fraud offence.

Vincent McKee, 54, of Hanbury Place, Little Heath, Coventry, had already been found guilty of 24 counts of fraudulently taking money from students and families.

The jury returned again yesterday afternoon to find him guilty of one further similar charge.

A trial at Coventry Crown Court has heard McKee took thousands of pounds from students or parents while running a firm offering private lessons to students.

The jury will continue deliberating today on nine more fraud charges and a separate charge of perverting the course of justice.

McKee – who stood for the Lib Dems in Coventry North west in the 2010 general election – had denied all 34 charges of dishonestly obtaining nearly £30,000 from 34 clients’ accounts using their bank card details.

The charges relate to when McKee was the boss of city student tuition firms.

(2012) Conservative M.P. (Malevolent Parasite) Peter Luff -PARASITE AND RENT-SWAPPER

A quick reminder of the definition of a parasite:

“PARASITE: (Chambers English Dictionary) A creature which obtains food and physical protection from a host which never benefits from its presence.”

Peter Luff was one of the worst expense troughers – his expensive tastes demands from the taxpayers last time around included a £625 china service, £1,583 on dining room table, £500 for Aga servicing, £809.91 for a TV and another china set for £367 a few years later. In short he was one of the worst troughers caught in 2009 to survive the 2010 election.

He has responded to revelations that he is, surprise-surprise, a rent-swapper with a David Laws style defence that the taxpayer would have saved money if he had broken the rules rather than merely gamed the system. In the interests of fairness Guido reproduces his argument in full:

“The new Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) expenses scheme did not allow MPs to claim the cost of mortgage interest. I could not, therefore, afford to live in my London flat and I had no choice but to sell it or to rent it out. Having only recently purchased it, I chose to rent it out and this information has been in the public domain for two years, it having been properly declared in the Register of Members’ Interests. 

IPSA specified that when MPs are away from home they must live in rented property or stay in a hotel. When I am in London, I now therefore live in a rented flat. This is not my preference – I would have preferred to continue to live in the flat I own, but IPSA’s well-meaning rules designed to safeguard the taxpayers’ interests and promote transparency oblige me to do so. Ironically, the costs to the taxpayer would have been lower had I been allowed to continue with my previous arrangements.”

The obvious question that is unanswered is why a Tory MP on £65,738 thinks that he can’t afford to live in the Kennington flat we have so lavishly furnished with tea sets for him – the mortgage was just £657 a month in 2007 and would be considerably less today with lower interest rates. The average wage in London is less than half what Luff earns. Luff is standing down at the next election before the voters kick him out. Good riddance…

(2012) New Labour M.P. (Malevolent Parasite) Denis MacShane -PARASITICAL RENT-SWAPPER

Let us remind ourselves of the definition of a parasite: 

“PARASITE: (Chambers English Dictionary) A creature which obtains food and physical protection from a host which never benefits from its presence.”

The original expenses scandal cost dozens of corrupt MPs their jobs, the worst offenders ended up behind bars. Now the rent-swapping sleaze that John Bercow is trying to cover up has been blown wide open. This morning Guido is listing the most shameless rent-swappers…

The usual suspects kept cropping up when Guido started digging around last week. Top of the pile was surprise, surprise Denis MacShane, outed in the Times this weekend. In addition to his property back in Rotherham – remember he rented his garage to himself on expenses for £125,000 – MacShame owns a £700,000 house in Pimlico just a few minutes walk from Parliament, which he rents out under the IPSA rules and then claims £1,450-a-month expenses to rent another home in London. Making cash off the back of the taxpayers when he has no reason to exploit the IPSA loophole except to enrich himself…

When The Times confronted him he claimed he had stopped doing it – convenient. We have some further questions for him, when did he stop the fiddle? Why can’t MacShame live in his posh Pimlico pad right next to Westminster? Why does millionaire MacShane have to bill the taxpayer rent for a house he doesn’t need to rent?

Because he is taking us for a ride. Again…

ARTICLE / VIDEO: Expenses scandal: MPs block details of new expenses

The Speaker of the House of Commons is attempting to block the publication of MPs’ expenses that are believed to show that some rent their taxpayer-funded homes to each other.

John Bercow has written to the expenses regulator warning him not to disclose official documents that show the identities of MPs’ landlords for “security” reasons.

Publication of the names, which was supposed to take place today, would expose the extent to which MPs are exploiting a loophole in the rules that allows politicians to rent their homes to one another. The loophole means that MPs can still effectively build up property nest eggs at taxpayers’ expense, despite official attempts to stop the practice following the expenses scandal.

Sources at the expenses regulator confirmed that “some MPs” were engaged in the practice.

In a letter released last night, it emerged that Mr Bercow had written to the regulator claiming that publication of details of MPs’ landlords jeopardised their security and had led to “grave concerns” in the House of Commons.

“The processing of the data … could involve causing unwarranted damage and distress,” the Speaker wrote in the letter to the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa). “I should be grateful if you and your colleagues would reconsider such a plan.”

(2012) Sacked New Labour Parasites Plan to Return and Suck More Blood from the Taxpayer

The Standard have an interesting scoop this afternoon: a number of shamed expenses-hungry Labour MPs who lost their jobs at the last election are apparently planning comebacks in 2015. Guido is generously offering to run their campaigns free of charge:

  • Dawn Butler – Dawn has lived in Brent all her life so she knows the issues that matter to you first hand. In fact, she’s such a dedicated Londoner that she claimed nearly £40,000 of your money for a second home, despite living within ten miles of Westminster! In her spare time Dawn likes to enjoy her “whirlpool” bath paid for by, you guessed it, the taxpayer (allegedly). Vote Dawn – no expense spared for a better Brent!
  • Shahid Malik – They say there’s no rest for the wicked, but don’t tell that to Shahid. After a long day helping constituents the Dewsbury through-and-through Labour stalwart likes nothing more than to relax in his massage armchair. You’ve already shown your appreciation, you paid for it! Don’t sit around – vote for Shahid!
  • Parmjit Dhanda – George Osborne certainly doesn’t have the experience to get us out of this economic mess, but Parmjit does. He’s a money expert, reportedly managing to get away with sneaking an extra £2,000 in mortgage payments by blaming it on“accounting adjustments”If that’s the sort of financial nous you think we need in government – vote Dhanda!

ARTICLE AND VIDEO: Fraud, Corruption, Labour-run Sheffield City Council, and Sir Bob Kerslake -INSTITUTIONAL FRAUD

A major city with a £1.8 billion budget, fraud within Sheffield has affected both national and European funding streams.

Sir Bob Kerslake

Yesterday’s UK Column Live investigated allegations of institutional and financial corruption within Sheffield City Council that has swallowed £millions of public money and defrauded ordinary taxpayers.

OLAF, the European Fraud Office, not only failed to tackle financial abuses, but also assisted in the cover-up.

It was alleged Sheffield Chief Executive Bob Kerslake, now head of the Civil Service, assisted this dirty process.

Not only has the Audit Commission failed to clean up the city, they have acted with a common purpose to protect the Council and key people – including implicated Common Purpose graduates.

Whistleblowers exposing the crimes report that they have been seriously harassed and threatened over many years to shut them up. One of these brave people agreed to speak out on UK Column live.

VIDEO: 12-year-old Girl Eloquently Lifts Lid on the Global Enemies of the People


The former Tory politician was last May jailed for 12 months after cheating the public purse out of £11,277 with bogus claims for travel costs.

He now has no income and has been struggling to find work after ‘losing his good name’, the Bar Standards Board heard.

The 59-year-old had retained his status as a barrister despite not having practised since he became a member of the House of Lords.

Disbarring him for ‘conduct discreditable to a barrister’, Judge Nicholas Riddell said the regulator ‘requires complete honesty and the greatest integrity as regards all members of the bar.’

‘Criminal behaviour of this seriousness is, in our view to a high degree, discreditable to a barrister, whether or not he was practising at the time,’ Judge Riddell said.

‘We regretfully are clearly of the opinion that the commission of this offence is incompatible with his continued membership of the bar, despite all the mitigation we have heard and taken account of.’

Before entering politics, Taylor had practised as a lawyer in Oxford and the midlands for 17 years.

Mohammed Khamisa QC, defending, told the panel Taylor had ‘suffered quite enough’ after his conviction on the criminal charges.

‘He told me, “what more has God, has society, got in store for me?”.

‘He has lost the only thing that he had: his good name – he really hasn’t got very much money, and is living through the benevolence of friends and family.

‘What you are dealing with is a single error of judgement in an otherwise distinguished life.

‘He has been a role model and continues to be.’

Taylor was convicted of six counts of false accounting following a trial at Southwark Crown Court last May.

He had falsely registered a house in Oxford as his main residence, enabling him to claim expenses for travel to-and-from London, and for overnight stays in the capital.

(2012) New Labour Cllr. Michael Mills -BENEFIT FRAUD

A town councillor fraudulently claimed more than £20,000 of benefits in his wife’s name for nearly two years after she died, magistrates have heard.

Michael Mills, 64, a member of Holywell town council in Flintshire at the time, was caught following a tip-off.

Investigators found that his wife Brenda died in January 2010 but kept observations as he went to the Post Office to claim her benefits.

Mills admitted 14 fraud charges and will be sentenced at a later date.

Flintshire magistrates heard that the couple had been married 44 years but that Mrs Mills had been extremely ill for the last five years of her life, ending her days in hospital.

The court heard that the retired miner from Greenfield felt guilty at agreeing to switch off his wife’s life support machine.

Unable to come to terms with the loss, he carried on life as normal, claiming benefits and paying the household bills.

Prosecutor Henry Hills said that the Department of Work and Pensions received anonymous information that he was continuing to claim his dead wife’s benefits.

Checks showed that retirement benefits of £40 a week were still being paid out in her name together with £402 a month disability living allowance – but checks with the registrar showed that she died on 23 January 2010.

Observations showed that he was attending the Greenfield sub post office weekly, and post office records showed he was still claiming benefits as a married man caring for a disabled wife, as well as her benefits.

After Mills was arrested in January this year, it also emerged that he had failed to disclose his miner’s pension.

‘Genuinely remorseful’

Mr Hills said that the defendant had been overpaid £21,357 – made up of £2,089 pension credit, £5,239 carer’s allowance, £4,066 state retirement pension and £9,962 disability living allowance.

Brian Cross, defending, said Mills had served his local community for 20 years, helping many people in need, and felt guilt for the death of his wife.

“He faced that decision of whether or not the machine should be switched off,” said Mr Cross.

“He felt very guilty about that and went into a state of shock.

“In his own words he was in a trance like state.

“He is genuinely remorseful and wishes to apologise for his behaviour.”

Mills was granted unconditional bail pending sentence.

You’d possibly visit a quintessentially British store, such as Boots the chemist, Selfridges or Harrods, before having a proper English tea at the Savoy, Fortnum & Mason or the Dorchester.

Margaret Moran, the former Labour MP accused of falsely claiming £80,000 in expenses, has been found ‘unfit to plead’ after a court heard she felt ‘suicidal’ after being ‘abandoned’ by the Labour party.

Mr Justice Saunders admitted his judgement may be viewed with ‘scepticism’ but concluded that Moran, 56, of Southampton, Hampshire, is unfit to plead.

Moran did not attend the hour long hearing at Lewes Crown Court.

It was found she is suffering from “a depressive illness with associated anxiety” to a “moderate severity” and that she will be unable to enter a plea to her 21-count indictment.

The court heard the shame and “villification” she had suffered after being accused of fiddling her expenses had left her a “broken woman.”

Her illness becomes much worse whenever the case was mentioned, Dr Philip Joseph, a consultant forensic psychiatrist, told the court.

Dr Joseph, called by Moran’s defence lawyer Jim Sturman, said: “She has feelings of abandonment from the Labour party.

(2012) Ex-U.K.I. P. Nikki Sinclaire M.E.P. -ARRESTED FOR EXPENSES FRAUD

An independent MEP has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud the European Parliament for allegedly claiming road mileage but travelling on a much cheaper flight.

Nikki Sinclaire, from Meriden, West Midlands, was quizzed by detectives from West Midlands Police’s Economic Crime Unit over allegations about her allowance and expense claims.

Miss Sinclaire, who was elected as a UKIP MEP for the West Midlands in June 2009, was arrested at a Birmingham police station last night.

She had the UKIP whip withdrawn in 2010 following rows over policy, but continues to represent the region in the European Parliament as an independent.

Three other people, two women and a 19-year-old man, were also arrested at addresses in Solihull, Worcester and Birmingham.

All four have now been released on police bail.

A spokeswoman for West Midlands Police said last night: ‘West Midlands Police Economic Crime Unit have today arrested four people on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud the European Parliament.

‘Two women, aged 55 and 39, and a man aged 19 were arrested at addresses in Solihull, Worcester and Birmingham this morning, while a 43 year-old woman was later arrested at a police station in Birmingham. All four remain in custody this evening.

‘The arrests are part of an ongoing investigation which followed an allegation made in 2010 into allowances and expenses.’

(2012) New labour Cllr. John Holden -JAILED FOR £43,000 BENEFIT FRAUD

A LABOUR councillor has been expelled from his party after being jailed for benefit fraud.

John Holden, 62, who represented Inverness South in the Highlands, was sentenced at the city’s sheriff court today to a year in prison for defrauding £43,000-worth of benefits.

He was found guilty last month after a 12-day trial.

Holden was convicted of committing the fraud over nine years, between January 1999 and August 2008.

On sentencing, Sheriff Abercrombie told him: “By deliberately making false claims for benefit and by deliberately failing to notify your true financial circumstances, you together with all other cheats who try to beat the system for personal gain have undermined that social contract. You have shown cold contempt for it.”

After Holden was imprisoned, Inverness district procurator fiscal Emma Knox said: “John Holden was in a position of trust which he flagrantly abused. For a period of over nine years he lied about his circumstances to claim in excess of £43,000 in benefits, to which he was not entitled.

“Mr Holden in effect stole money from the public purse which was intended for those who most needed it.

“The fact that he has been sentenced to the maximum term of imprisonment allowed for such offences demonstrates the serious view that has been taken of these disgraceful crimes.”

(2012) Conservative Cllr. Tony Brice -GIVEN CURFEW FOR BENEFIT FRAUD

A COUNCILLOR who pleaded guilty to three counts of benefit fraud totalling nearly £3,000 has been given a curfew and ordered to carry out unpaid community work.

But Tony Brice, 67, who represents the Lindley ward on Kirklees Council says he is determined to appeal and to retain his position on the council despite his Conservative group disowning him last year when the 21-strong group voted to expel him.

Magistrates in Halifax heard yesterday that Brice had pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing in Dewsbury to obtaining £2,977.32 in benefits to which he was not entitled.

For the prosecution, Samantha Lawton, said the offences related to non-disclosure of information beginning in May 2010 regarding pension income, an HSBC Isa account and a savings account.

This was compounded in July that year by his failing to notify the authorities that there had been a change in his financial circumstances – namely he had been receiving a second pension of £67 a month for five months.

Then in October he failed to declare an increase in income from a pension which had risen from £392 to £442.

Ms Lawton said he had a number of opportunities to notify the council of the changes during 2010 but failed to do so.

(2012) Ex-New Labour Cllr. Shelina Akhtar -3 COUNTS OF BENEFIT FRAUD


The disgraced Tower Hamlets councillor who admitted in court dishonestly claiming housing and council tax benefit continues to defy calls for her resignation.

Cllr Shelina Akhtar didn’t turn up for last night’s key council meeting—but sent apologies instead.

Mayor Lutfur Rahman had been the latest to call for her to step down, after demands from both the Labour Group leader and Tory Group leader for her to go.

She pleaded guilty on January 9 to three charges of failing to notify a change of circumstance and continued claiming benefits and will be sentenced on February 6.

Akhtar won her seat on the council in 2010, representing Spitalfields for Labour, but then defected to become an independent working alongside Mayor Rahman.

The mayor said earlier this month that council procedures had to be followed and the authority was waiting for the outcome of the court sentencing before deciding any further steps.

(2011) (Video) Conservative Party “Lord” Taylor -JAILED FOR 12 MONTHS FOR FRAUD

Lord Taylor of Warwick, the first black member of the House of Lords, defrauded the expenses system by more than £11,000.

The 58-year-old, dressed in black suit, blue tie and shirt, looked impassive as the sentence was passed at Southwark Crown Court.

Mr Justice Saunders said Taylor had ruined his life “not by one stupid action but by a protracted course of dishonesty”.

Taylor was found guilty in January this year for claiming in 2006 and 2007 that his main residence was in Oxford, when he actually owned just the one home in Ealing, west London.

He subsequently claimed an overnight allowance and travelling expenses to which he was not entitled.

Ex-Labour MP Jim Devine has been found guilty of dishonestly claiming £8,385 of expenses by using false invoices for cleaning and printing work.

The ex-MP for Livingston, 57, was found guilty on two counts, but cleared of a third count, relating to £360.

Devine nodded as the verdicts were delivered. Sentencing is in four weeks. The maximum jail term is seven years.

He was the first MP to stand trial in the wake of the revelations about Parliamentary expenses claims.

The jury took two hours and 45 minutes to agree their verdicts on the three counts.

Peter Wright QC, prosecuting, said the case against Devine was “very straightforward”, saying Devine made the fraudulent claims “with a view to gain for himself, or with an intent to cause loss to another – the public purse”.

He said the Green Book guide for MPs made clear that when claiming expenses MPs should be guided by the principles of “selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership”.

‘Plainly dishonest’

Jim Devine’s account ‘incredible’, jurors told

(2011) Tory Peer Taylor- Guilty of “fiddling his parliamentary expenses” (Stealing from taxpayer).


He falsely claimed more than £11,200 from the public purse after nominating a home outside London which he neither owned nor lived in as his main residence. He lived in west London.

The barrister and former television producer who became Britain’s first black Conservative peer is the first parliamentarian to be tried and found guilty by a jury over the expenses scandal.

The Labour MPs David Chaytor and Eric Illsley both pleaded guilty.

Taylor, who has not paid back any of the money, is expected to hang on to his seat in the House of Lords.

The 58 year-old, who describes himself as a committed Christian, insisted he was only following advice on expenses from other peers but was found guilty of six counts of false accounting by a majority verdict at Southwark Crown Court.

He was given unconditional bail but faces up to two years in jail.

Outside court, his lawyer Eddie Tang said: “Lord Taylor has devoted 20 years of his life to public service. He is clearly devastated about the jury’s verdict.”

In 2006 and 2007, Taylor received £11,277 in expenses after claiming his main residence was in Oxford and that he had to travel back and forth each time he attended the House of Lords.

The house belonged to his nephew Robert Taylor, who had no idea his uncle had nominated the home he shared with Dr Tristram Wyatt, a fellow at Oxford University.

Mr Taylor said he was “shocked and quite angry” when he discovered that his uncle had been using the two-bedroom terrace property as a cover for his expenses. He said Taylor had only visited twice, never stayed overnight and had no financial claim on the house.

Taylor insisted he had been told he would be “crazy” not to claim for a house outside London, even if he didn’t live there.

He said he had been advised by Lord Colwyn, the deputy speaker of the House of Lords, who was summoned to court to give evidence. Lord Colwyn denied giving such advice and added: “I would not have suggested anything being claimed in the House of Lords that was in any way dishonest.”

Tory Peer Taylor Says Theft from Taxpayer is “perfectly acceptable”

Peers were routinely fiddling their expenses ‘day in and day out’ in the House of Lords, a court heard yesterday.

It was ‘common practice’ to make bogus claims for second home and mileage allowances – and to boost income by doing so was widely regarded as ‘perfectly acceptable’.

Tory peer Lord Taylor of Warwick was even told he would be ‘crazy’ not to charge for a second home outside London, it was alleged – even though his only home was in Ealing.

So the ex-barrister and one-time Tory Party election candidate filled in forms that purported to show his main home was in Oxfordshire, and that he had to travel to the capital and stay overnight on Parliamentary business.

But he had never stayed at the Oxfordshire address, and had no connection with it beyond the fact it belonged to his half nephew.

The alleged deception meant he was able to claim a total of £11,000 in subsistence and mileage allowances between March 2006 and October 2007.

Later he told a journalist his main home until 2007 was ‘the Taylor family home’ in Solihull, where his elderly mother lived. But she died in 2001 and the house was sold soon afterwards, the court heard.

Lord Taylor, who pleaded not guilty to six counts of false accounting, did not deny he had made the claims – but insisted he had not done so dishonestly.

(2011) Conservative Lord Taylor -on trial over £11,000 expenses ‘fraud’


A Tory peer is to go on trial today accused of dishonestly claiming more than £11,000 on House of Lords expenses.

Lord Taylor of Warwick is accused of registering an Oxford property lived in by a distant relative as his main residence so that he could claim expenses on his own home in London.

It meant that the 58-year-old barrister was able to bill the taxpayer for overnight subsistence and mileage only available to those living outside London, when he actually lived in capital, it is alleged.

The peer, whose full name is full name John David Beckett Taylor, faces six counts of false accounting under the 1968 Theft Act for claims amounting to £11,277 between 2006 and 2007. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

His trial is to begin this morning at Southwark Crown Court.

Lord Taylor became the first black Conservative peer when he was appointed to the Lords in 1996.


MP ‘reports six colleagues to police over expenses’

The MPs are thought to include a former Labour cabinet minister, two Labour MPs, two Conservatives and a Liberal Democrat.

The allegations are said to relate to inflated claims for household expenditure such as council tax, maintenance and utility bills.

According to the Sunday Times, the allegations have been made by a Labour MP, who represents a northern constituency, who passed details of alleged wrongdoing to police because he believes he was unfairly singled out for investigation over his own allowances.

If confirmed, it would be the first time since the expenses scandal erupted in 2009 that an MP has made a complaint to police about fellow members of the Commons.

Scotland Yard said on Saturday that “a small number” of parliamentary expenses cases remain under consideration by a panel of detectives and prosecutors, but was unable to say whether any fresh cases had been brought to their attention recently.

Eric Illsley went from Honourable Member to criminal in the half second it took to plead guilty. Three times he was forced to declare his guilt, admitting three counts of claiming parliamentary expenses dishonestly.

Separated from the outside world by the toughened glass of the dock at Southwark Crown Court, the still-serving member for Barnsley Central stared ahead impassively as a tawdry list of fiddles amounting to some £14,500 was read out. Council tax and telephone charges over-claimed from the taxpayer; utilities bills, too.

The bluff Yorkshireman, keen on caravanning and known to down the odd pint, should enjoy a drink while he can. In a few weeks’ time he can expect to follow that other ex-Labour MP, David Chaytor, to prison. Chaytor got 18 months; Illsley, who has admitted stealing less, can hope for a shorter term.

William Coker QC, his brief, served notice that he would attempt to secure a shorter stay behind bars for his client due to the ill-health of his wife.

Illsley, 55, who proudly proclaims his council house birth on his website, was one of those unspectacular backbenchers supposedly destined for a long and comfortable parliamentary career by virtue of a safe seat. Grammar school and university educated (in law), he worked as an administrator in the National Union of Mineworkers before succeeding Roy Mason in Barnsley, where Labour votes are weighed rather than counted. They weigh rather less nowadays, but Illsley’s majority was still more than 10,000 last year when, due to the lateness of the decision to prosecute him, he was allowed to stand for Labour in the general election.

The whip was withdrawn only in May when he was charged.


The first entry for 2011 is welcome news. Let us hope he is the first of many to realise in prison that he is not above the law.


Chaytor, 61, became the first politician to be convicted and sentenced over the MPs’ expenses scandal revealed by the Daily Telegraph.

The judge said the scandal had angered the public and “shaken public confidence in the legislature”.

Chaytor submitted bogus invoices to support claims totalling £22,650 for IT services and renting homes in London and his Bury North constituency.

He was convicted last month at the Old Bailey of three counts of theft by false accounting under section 17 of the Theft Act 1968.

Expenses scandal: three face suspension from House of Lords

Three peers investigated over their expenses claims face suspension from the House of Lords and repayment of tens of thousands of pounds, The Sunday Telegraph has learned

The trio – two Labour peers and a cross-bencher – are expected to be officially recommended for censure in a statement tomorrow by the House of Lords authorities.

Baroness Uddin, a Labour peer and the first Muslim woman to be appointed to the upper house, is set to be suspended from the Lords for between a year and 18 months, and has agreed to pay back £125,000 in wrongly claimed expenses.

Lord Paul, another Labour peer and a major party donor, has been recommended for a suspension of between four and six months and has agreed to pay back £40,000.

Lord Bhatia, who sits as a cross-bencher but has also donated money to Labour, faces a ban of between six and 12 months and is to repay voluntarily £27,000.

All three were investigated by the subcommittee on Lords’ interests, a powerful body in the upper house chaired by Baroness Manningham-Buller, the former head of MI5. Lord Paul and Lady Uddin were referred to the committee after criminal investigations into their cases were dropped.

Last night none of the trio was prepared to comment on the results of the investigation and its recommendations on punishments – which will now be passed to the House of Lords to vote on. However, a source close to the investigation said: “This looks extremely serious for them.”

Bill Wiggin was also told by Parliament’s sleaze watchdog to say sorry for wrongly designating his second home in London as his main home.

He was chastised by the Standards and Privileges Committee for his “serious” breaches of the rules and his “disappointing” failure to co-operate with the inquiry by providing invoices.

But Mr Wiggin, a farmer who was in the year above David Cameron at Eton, also faces losing his job in the Whips’ Office and may even have the party whip withdrawn.

When The Daily Telegraph first reported his questionable claims in May 2009, the Conservative leader warned he would be “out of the door” if he had claimed money to which he was not entitled.

Jim Miller, a constituent of Mr Wiggin who made the official complaint about him, said: “I’m going to write to Mr Cameron asking him if he is a man of his word.

“Conservatives here voted for Bill Wiggin in May on the basis that he’d been given a clean bill of health by David Cameron. I think this is a matter of the Prime Minister’s word.”

Mr Wiggin, who once worked in the foreign exchange department of Commerzbank, has been the Tory MP for Leominster in Herefordshire since 2001.



(2010) New Labour Eric Illsey -CHARGED WITH FALSE ACCOUNTING

Eric Illsley the Labour MP for Barnsley Central has been summoned to Westminister Magistrates for three charges of false accounting in his expenses.


UPDATE: Seems there was some discrepancy in council tax claims. Illsley claimed £10,000 over four years  for a Lambeth Band C property.

Thanks, Guido


(2010) New Labour’s Margaret Moran may be fifth MP to face court

A fifth Labour MP is likely to face criminal charges over the alleged abuse of taxpayer-funded parliamentary expenses, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

Detectives have spent several months looking into claims made by Margaret Moran, the former MP for Luton South. She is expected to be charged within weeks, according to well-placed Whitehall sources. It is understood that officers suspect Miss Moran of submitting claims for work which was not conducted at the property designated as her second home for parliamentary purposes. Other invoices may have been inflated or the dates altered.

The Labour MP was exposed by The Daily Telegraph for making some of the most controversial claims after it emerged that she had repeatedly “flipped” her designated second home. She made expenses claims for at least three different properties, in London, Luton and Southampton, over a four-year period. Miss Moran claimed more than £20,000 for the treatment of dry rot at the Southampton home – almost 100 miles from either her constituency or Westminster. However, it has not previously been disclosed that she was under police investigation. The former MP, who was forced to step down at the last election, is now set to join four other Labour politicians facing court over their expenses claims. The Metropolitan Police are still understood to be investigating a further two or three MPs, including the former Labour member Harry Cohen.

The Parasite is not so Easily Removed from the Back of the People…

Above: M.P.s are not so tolerant of interlopers (those appointed to give the taxpayer justice) muscling in on their patch.

A senior official tasked with cleaning up the Westminster’s expenses system, has said he left the post “for the sake of my health and sanity” amid a backlash from some MPs.

Nigel Gooding has left his job as operations director of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) following a series of rows with MPs, some of whom have been left up to £20,000 worse off under new stricter rules.

The 46-year-old civil servant was employed on a six-month contract to launch IPSA and implement cuts including an end to public subsidies on lavish second homes and first-class train trips

However, he has stood down from his role, telling the Mail on Sunday: “I have left the job for the sake of my health and sanity.”

IPSA was forced to erect a sign at its Commons offices warning MPs: ‘We will not tolerate abuse of staff.’

Many MPs have complained about IPSA’s handling of their expenses and the implementation of the new rules.

Paul Farrelly, a Labour MP, sent a complaint to Mr Gooding and said the new system was “prehistoric, amateurish, self-defeating and bureaucracy gone mad”.

He wrote: “I have been asked for a copy of my passport or birth certificate to prove my date of birth. Why that is necessary, I do not know. More importantly, as I have used my overdraft limit, my mortgage payment will bounce, causing me embarrassment and further charges You could easily have saved us all this aggravation.”

Mr Gooding’s previous jobs included launching the National Rail Enquiries service and the flu pandemic hot line.

M.P.s Vs Army: General Sir David Richards warns of morale crisis among troops

With scenes like the one above (left) being explained by the image above (right) –in addition to the British Army’s substandard equipment, vehicles and armour– we can’t think why there is a “morale crisis”? Still, the (“government”) who pays the piper calls the tune –and this piper is seldom short of morale.

The poor quality of soldiers’ lives when they return home from conflict has hit morale and risks undermining the war in Afghanistan, the head of the Army has warned.

n a leaked draft memo to ministers, General Sir David Richards said that budget cuts to the military at home were having a “cumulative and corrosive effect” on soldiers and their families.

He said that the refocusing of military effort on Afghanistan was welcome, with soldiers now feeling “well supported and resourced” in theatre.

But the conditions they experienced when they returned home were below par and could eventually impact on the operation itself, he warned.

“As Chief of the General Staff, I register an early concern about the impact on morale, the potentially severe downstream impact on retention, and our ability to sustain the campaign in the long term,” he wrote.

His comments echo those made by his predecessor General Sir Richard Dannatt, who said that many families and marriages were falling victim to the “relentless” pace of operations and that goodwill was being stretched to the limit.

(2010) MPs and Peer to Stand Trial as would the Common Man

Three former Labour MPs and a Conservative peer are to face criminal trials for alleged expenses fraud after a judge threw out their attempts to claim parliamentary privilege.

Elliot Morley, David Chaytor, Jim Devine and Lord Hanningfield had argued that they could not be tried in court because of a 300-year-old law exempting MPs and Lords from prosecution over proceedings in parliament.

But Mr Justice Saunders rejected their application, saying there was “no logical, practical, moral or legal justification” for expenses claims being covered by privilege.

However, the four men have announced they will appeal against the decision, meaning the taxpayer will face a bill running into six figures for another hearing.

The judge granted permission for the men to take their case to the Court of Appeal for a hearing which is likely to take place later in the summer.

If their appeal is unsuccessful they will face juries at Southwark Crown Court in south London on charges of false accounting in separate trials which could begin before the end of this year.

U.K.I.P. M.E.P. Ashley Mote -FRAUD

A British member of the European Parliament has been jailed for nine months for falsely claiming more than £65,000 in benefits.

However, 71-year-old Ashley Mote, a former Ukip representative, has not lost his seat because of a law that means he can only be disqualified if he receives a term sentence of more than 12 months.

The father of two, who is an MEP for south east England, was found guilty of 21 offences following a four-week trial.

During sentencing, Judge Richard Price told Mote: “To say that this case has ruined you is an understatement, it is a tragedy.

“You have worked amazingly hard as an MEP. Nevertheless, the charges of which you have been convicted can only be met by a custodial sentence, nothing else would be appropriate.”

(2009) UKIP M.E.P. Bob Spink -PARASITE

UKIP’s sole Member of Parliament, Bob Spink, has been exposed as a parliamentary expenses trough feeder like all other parties’ MPs, with an impressive expenses claim of £140,987 over and above his ordinary salary.
Mr Spink, the living embodiment of the “corrupt Conservatives in camouflage” UKIP, joined that party after defecting from the Tories.
Mr Spink, who is still listed on the UKIP website as an “enthusiastic member and supporter of UKIP,” last year took home a delightful £23,083 in housing allowances, £13,356 in office allowances, £82,472 in staffing  allowances (nearly one of the largest such “staffing” expenses of all MPs, making one wonder what huge staff this single MP employs), £1,005 on “central stationery,” £4,845 on IT provision, £1,148 on staff cover and £9,017 on travel (he obviously travels a lot).
The previous year, Mr Spink put in an even more impressive claim of in excess of £152,000, meaning that in two years he has claimed nearly a third of a million pounds from the taxpayers over his MP’s salary.
His latest £140,987 claim makes him one of the nation’s top trough feeders, a mere £9,000 below the expenses claim of the leader of the opposition, David Cameron. UKIP’s Mr Spink must be an important man.
UKIP leader Nigel Farage and his fellow MEPs have set the standard, however. They have consistently refused to publish their European parliamentary expenses, an act of extreme hypocrisy given the fact that their party makes much of the failure of the European Union to sign off its annual accounts.
There are also many simmering scandals within UKIP. Numerous questions hover over that party’s Ashford Call Centre, where 90 percent of supporters’ funds disappeared into a black hole.
Worse, there remain the pressing questions in relation to Mr Farage’s own South East region, where hundreds of thousands of pounds — the bulk of its turnover — disappeared in what was mysteriously ascribed to “other costs” between 2004 and 2005.

(2009) New Labour David Miliband M.P. -PARASITE AND SUPPORTER OF TERRORISM

David Miliband’s defence of terrorism is a disgrace

The Foreign Secretary’s remarks to the BBC Radio 4 Great Lives programme condoning terrorism in some circusmstances are an absolute disgrace, and should be disowned by the Prime Minister. The Radio 4 interview focused on the life of South African Marxist Joe Slovo, a leading member of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the military wing of the African National Congress (ANC). The ANC’s bombing campaign included the targeting and killing of civilians.

As The Daily Mail reports, when asked by presenter Matthew Parris whether terrorism can ever be justified, Miliband stated:

“Yes, there are circumstances in which it is justifiable, and yes, there are circumstances in which it is effective.”

“The importance for me is that the South African example proved something remarkable: it looked like a regime that would last forever, and it was blown down.”

“It is hard to argue that, on its own, a political struggle would have delivered. The striking at the heart of a regime’s claim on a monopoly of power, which the ANC’s armed wing represented, was very significant.

Perhaps this is what Mr. Miliband supports?

…surely it is this what Mr. Miliband sees as “justifiable”?

Miliband and the Establishment’s hero:  convicted Communist terrorist Nelson Mandela

Take a look at what the “glorious” people of the “Rainbow nation” did to innocent farmers. Is that what Mr. Miliband regards as “justifiable”? (Please brace yourself for these extremely disturbing images)


David Miliband’s spending on his constituency home was so extensive that even his gardener questioned whether some of the costs were strictly necessary.

Over five years, Mr Miliband spent just under £30,000 on repairs, decoration and furnishings for his £120,000 home in South Shields.

On at least one occasion, he exceeded the maximum allowable amount and had his claim cut back. Mr Miliband, the current Foreign Secretary, spent up to £180 every three months on his garden, prompting his own gardener at one point to ask whether all the work was required.

In April 2008, on the bottom of a receipt for £132.96, the gardener wrote: “Please let me know if you would like pots making up at front and back this year, given the relatively short time you’ll be here and their labour-intensive nature.”

Under the rules, MPs may claim for basic garden maintenance, but not: “plants, shrubs, flowers, hanging baskets or other decorations”.

In 2005, Mr Miliband fell foul of rules which prohibit MPs from claiming any costs relating to their children. His application for reimbursement for a £199 pram and £80 in “baby essentials” were both rejected.

In another breach of the guidelines, Mr Miliband regularly claimed about £89 for undisclosed “household items”. In 2006, the then-environment secretary was told that he needed to provide details of his claims, and that part of his payment would be held back until he did. He wrote back withdrawing the claims, saying: “I am afraid I have not been able to lay my hands on the receipts for the items so we had better leave the payment as you have made it. I will keep a closer guard of the receipts in future.” Mr Miliband failed to resubmit his claim, even when the fees office wrote back advising that he did not need to provide receipts, but just to supply details of the items. He was not asked to repay his previous claims over several months, or provide information about the items that he had bought at taxpayers’ expense.

During the five years covered by the receipts, Mr Miliband successfully claimed for a £412 hand-crafted chair, a goose-down duvet and chenille throw from Marks & Spencer, a £450 “Gatsby” John Lewis sofa, and a washing machine and tumble dryer, some of which were ordered in the name of his American wife, Louise, a concert violinist.

(2009) Sinn Fein/I.R.A. M.P. Gerry Adams -PARASITE

The scandal of how absent Sinn Fein MPs have milked the Parliamentary second-home expenses system for nearly £500,000 can be revealed.

The five MPs, who represent the political wing of the IRA, have not even taken up their Parliamentary seats and yet they have rented three London properties from the same family at rates well above the market norm.

The party’s two best-known figures, Gerry Adams, the party leader, and Martin McGuinness, Northern Ireland’s deputy first minister, jointly claimed expenses of £3,600 a month to rent a shared two-bedroom flat in north London. A local estate agent, who knows the properties, said a fair monthly rent for the flat would be £1,400.

The three other Sinn Fein MPs together claimed £5,400 a month to rent a shared, modern town house, which the estate agent said would rent on the open market for around £1,800 a month. At other times some of the MPs have stayed in a third property, another two-bedroom flat.

The Telegraph has made a series of explosive revelations about MPs’ expenses that have rocked Westminster, including more disclosures today about senior Labour and Conservative politicians. More details will be published over the coming days.

The five Sinn Fein MPs have claimed more than £310,000 in five years from the public purse by submitting receipts from one man, an Irish landlord living in London, and his family.

Immediate neighbours of the three north London properties, which are all part of the same development, could not recall seeing any of the five MPs when shown photographs of them.

E.O.T.P. Statement:

These parasites, like the other criminals and rogues on this website, are included herein because of their crimes against the People, the British Taxpayer. The Admin staff of this website make no political point (other than to point out facts). They take their place just like any body else. NO ONE IS EXEMPT IF THEY ARE ROBBING THE WORKER.

Still, they need not worry: we suppose that the inclusion of Sinn Fein/I.R.A. on this website will serve only to gratify them, augment their status and guarantee them more votes (their leeching off the British Taxpayer is sure to go down well with their Republican number.)

So, the question remains, People: why are the representatives of the I.R.A. claiming £500, 000 from the hard-up British worker? More to the point, how can they justify this expense?

Perhaps the extra cost is being incurred by M.I.5. doing their cleaning, daily chores and fetching their evening papers and bed-time slippers? Perhaps New Labour are still honouring their “welcome” to the “discussion table”?

Welcome to the perverse illusion that is “democracy”, People -a system where we fund parasites then complain when they suck a little too much.

Have we yet had enough or do we want more pain?

(2009) UKIP M.E.P. Tom Wise -FRAUD

A British Euro MP was last night charged with fiddling thousands of pounds of taxpayer-funded expenses. Former UKIP politician Tom Wise is accused of false accounting and money laundering following accusations that he fiddled his generous Brussels staff allowances. He is thought to be the first MEP to face criminal charges over the use of Parliamentary perks. Wise, 60, a former policeman, was arrested in June last year after it was revealed that he had allegedly siphoned off nearly £40,000 of public money by claiming it was for a researcher’s salary. Detectives investigated after it was claimed Wise only passed on some of the cash and banked the rest. He allegedly spent £6,500 on a Peugeot 406.

He was alleged to have pretended that his own bank account was that of his then researcher Lindsay Jenkins which is against EU rules.

(2009) New Labour’s Mohammed Sarwar M.P. -PARASITE WITH PREVIOUS

A multi-millionaire Labour backbencher claimed almost £100,000 to cover mortgage interest that he paid from an account with a Swiss bank.
Mohammad Sarwar, the MP for Glasgow Central, who has an estimated fortune of £16 million, has claimed close to the maximum under his second homes allowance since 2004.
He claimed almost £2,000 every month for the interest on his mortgage on a £600,000 apartment in an exclusive block in Vauxhall, south London, just over the river from the Houses of Parliament.
Mr Sarwar, the chairman of the Scottish Affairs Select Committee, also claimed more than £3,000 for ground rent and service charges every year as well as around £1,500 for council tax and hundreds of pounds for home phone bills that included calls to Pakistan.
Mr Sarwar claimed a total of £174,882 in expenses last year but turned up for only 55 per cent of votes, spoke in only nine debates and asked 55 parliamentary questions.
Since 2004 he has claimed a total of £86,497 in second homes allowance (Additional Costs Allowance) and a total of £638,640 in other expenses, including office and staff costs.
In June 2006 the Parliamentary Fees Office wrote to Mr Sarwar to ask for repayment of £580.39 after an audit of his claims discovered that he had submitted some claims twice – and therefore had been reimbursed twice.
Labour MP Mohammed Sarwar (Britain’s first Asian MP, Glasgow) was the subject of a major News of the World investigation in 1997 into bribery and corruption. Despite this, the massive Asian population in his constituency keeps him safely in his seat. http://tinyurl.com/2paunl
