Re: DPP charges politicians on expenses fraud

Another criminal has been dealt with to the full extent of the law.

A former Conservative peer jailed for fiddling his parliamentary expenses has been released from prison early, the BBC understands.

Lord Hanningfield was jailed for nine months in July after being found guilty of six counts of false accounting.

Sounds like he served about 25% of his sentence then. It's so refreshing to see how punitive the sentences being handed down really are eh?

Re: DPP charges politicians on expenses fraud

They should repay it, with interest added from the time they STOLE it.

Re: DPP charges politicians on expenses fraud

Bit of a bump, but here we go....

BBC
Quote:
Former Luton South MP Margaret Moran, who is accused of fiddling her parliamentary expenses, is not fit to stand trial, a court has been told.

Consultant forensic psychiatrist Philip Joseph said that Ms Moran, 56, was suffering from a depressive illness and extreme anxiety and agitation.
Whilst I have every sympathy with those suffering from stress/depression/etc, I am a little suspicious of this manifestation.

Perhaps if she hadn't fiddled her expenses (allegedly), she might not be so "stressed"?

Quote:
Dr Joseph told Lewes Crown Court the stress of the proceedings and allegations she was facing made it impossible for her to participate in court proceedings.
Must try that one next time I am up in court.....

Re: DPP charges politicians on expenses fraud

Wonder if this depressive illness will prove as long term and debilitating as Ernest Saunders' dementia....

Hmmm,.... Maybe that's how he's funded all that Apple bling......

Yes, I wouldn't be surprised if some of them now indulge in a little selective medical research so they can highlight a nice nebulous mitigating condition before their clients even realise they have one.
