It seems that there's not enough information for a prosecution yet.

Should he be investigated by the police? If the article is anything to go by, then yes.

Would a prosecution be n the public interest? Again, is the article is anything to go by, then

All this is playing into Gordon's hands!

It is driving people away from politics and therefore the election booths.

If there is enough apathy he just might manage to scrape through the election maintaining a majority.

It needs to be sorted out, and NOW!

In my view a low turnout will hurt Labour because Conservatives are more motivated to get Labour out. However, the Tory conference may have started a sea change in this regard.

he is my MP never been popular in the borough I think people vote for the party not the MP round here. had a good mp before him mr h.atkins.

I say charge him if evidence is there, its in public interest to take these people to court.

in any other business these fiddles would result in HMP

Prosecuted to the full extent of the law...But he won't be, we all know that. It's reached the point where I can no longer trust a single one of the greedy, money grabbing lot of them.

To put this in perspective:

It's called 'outsourcing' and a lot of companies have been doing it for years eg hospitals. You split off part of the service, call it a new company, put in the same team of people and hire it back to the original employer at a higher cost.

It just gets better and better.

The simple answer is YES> But as I've said before ""One rule for the rich and another for the poor""

It all comes back to the 'within the rules' faction.

From what I have read this guy claims he checked with the fees office and was given the go-ahead.

I fully agree it is morally reprehensible but criminal? I'm not so sure!

Our former Home Secretary was forced to apologise to the Commons but didn't pay back a penny! Now I read she is quibbling over being asked to repay £1500 and has only returned a thousand of it. In her case her constituents are trying to unseat her.

I said in another thread they should ALL be made to justify their claims (Even Brown and Cameron) to their local people and if they can't convince them they should stand down.

This is all so wrong and whilst it is dragging on Parliament is at a standstill - some would say that is no bad thing at the moment.
