If found guilty they should be disbarred for life and made to repay all monies.

Re: DPP charges politicians on expenses fraud

just heard on the itv news that they haven't been arrested nor have they been fingerprinted or had dna samples taken but have been charged

i thought ,and i could be wrong that if you have been charged then you must have been arrested and therefore fingerprints and dna must be taken
could this be the reason ?


Quote:
He said those who had been charged had raised the question of whether they could be protected by parliamentary privilege.
Mr Starmer said: "We have considered that question and concluded that the applicability and extent of any parliamentary privilege claimed should be tested in court."

But these are not mere mortals like us evidently,* they're deserving of special treatment...

(* except when elections are near & they like to pretend to understand & even empathise with the troubles of ordinary folk e.g. Margaret Hodge, who suddenly became sympathetic to the view that uncontrolled immigration is a genuine cause for concern after Nick Griffin decided to contest her seat).

Re: DPP charges politicians on expenses fraud

This case might go to the Supreme Court, then the MPs wouldn't have any excuses for not going, its just across the road from Parliament.

In Scotland you can be reported if the crime is minor and the identity of the accused is known so no need for arresting, fingerprinting and DNA'ing.

I'd imagine England and Wales are the same.

Still its nice to see that they have realised the level of public anger and are taking their chances in court without trying to wriggle out of it by effectively claiming that MP's are better than the public and above the law.

Oh...

It is feared that the prosecution case against them could be delayed by months of legal wrangling over whether the MPs are right to assert that their actions are covered by parliamentary privilege.
Absolutely no shame.

Absolutely no shame.

it's disgusting that these MP's think they can use an obscure law meant to ensure freedom of speech in the houses of parliament to wriggle out of criminal fraud charges .They all claim they have done nothing wrong ,they all claim they have paperwork to back up there expenses claims and they all claim that a error has been made so why not got to court and proove it ?

Then there is the one who got away because the documents were 'accidentally' shredded.

Re: DPP charges politicians on expenses fraud

Geoffrey Robinson, Ron Davies, Joe Ashton, Peter Mandelson, Fiona Jones(convicted of expenses fraud by a jury, but an appeal judge said the law didn't exist in the first place) and many, many other Labour MPs.

Re: DPP charges politicians on expenses fraud

Former minister Elliot Morley, MP for Scunthorpe, will face two charges in relation to a total of £30,000 of mortgage interest claims on a property in Winterton, Lincolnshire between 2004 and 2007.

The charges allege he made claims "in excess of that to which he was entitled" and - for part of the period when "there was no longer a mortgage on that property".


i shall be watching this one with great interest - claiming this as an oversight is just taking the p... out of all of the Uk's citizens , i want nothing short of gaol for this blatant theft

oversight my bottom ,if he claims that in court the judge should throw the book at him

Yeah odd that.... Now who was it again?... the name escapes me......

Dangerous things shredders, you know, especially when they're in the wrong hands! Rumour has it that No.10 has an array of high speed shredders on permanent standby just in case.....

Re: DPP charges politicians on expenses fraud

'Expenses fraud' MPs plead with court not to make them sit in dock... and then insist they should not be put on trial
