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