McNulty Should Pay Back His Fiddle

Guido went to school with Tony McNulty and it seems that some of the moral guidance he was given by the Irish priests has been lost on him after spending so long in Westminster.

The Mail on Sunday reports that the taxpayer is paying his parent’s housing costs – they live in his constituency home in Harrow (11 miles from Big Ben) while he lives in Hammersmith (3 miles from Westminster).  Note that it is about half-an-hour on the Metropolitan tube line from his constituency home to Westmnster tube station.  Why on earth in those circumstances should he need to avail himself of the second home allowance?

The remnants of a Catholic guilt complex have just about survived his years in the parliament of whores, because after being caught he told the Mail on Sunday that:

  • He was stopping claiming the allowance.
  • He thinks MPs who live within 60 miles of Westminster should be barred from claiming the mortgage subsidy.

He then tried to muddy the issue by claiming that Tory frontbenchers also abuse the allowance – true – which breaks the terms of the ceasefire on this issue agreed by whips from both parties.  He then backtracked and said “that is entirely appropriate.” They really are all at it.

McNulty has claimed over £100,000 from the allowance – despite him and his  quangocrat wife receiving an income from the taxpayers of some £1/3 million a year.  Do you think there is any chance he will repay it – if he thinks it inappropriate to claim it now – surely it was inappropriate in the past as well?  Like Spelman he should have to repay what he cheated from the taxpayers and be grateful he isn’t facing charges for obtaining monies by deception.

Guido wants to remind readers that the parliamentary committee set up to review the system – following repeated exposure of MPs defrauding the taxpayers – is recommending that the rules be changed to make the fiddle permissable.  MPs deciding MPs should continue to be able to get away with ripping off the taxpayers.  They really do like to stick their snouts in the taxpayer’s trough and crap it out on the public.

    Many MP’s are making the most of the rules by maximising accomodation cost claims which they arguably do not need anyway if they live near to london already.

    However it seems that at least they are claiming for costs they have actually paid out for (even though they will end up making capital gains eventually)

    McNulty however has claimed money for accomodation he has neither lived in nor paid for. (Although he bought the house in Harrow the fact of his letting his parents live in it effectively means he has rented it out and no longer can claim it as his home)

      ” Benefit thieves take money intended for the most vulnerable in our society. Quite rightly, the public get angry about such anti-social behaviour and with their support we are closing in on these thieves.”

      “Lying to the DWP to get money you aren’t entitled to is a crime. Expecting to get away with it is criminally stupid. This man thought he could live a life of Riley at the taxpayers’ expense. He was wrong. Our investigators caught up with him and now he’ll face the penalty for his crimes.”

      “Benefit thieves have to understand that they will not get away with it. Working together with local authorities and the police we have a strong range of powers to investigate and with the support of the public we bring benefit thieves to justice.”

    Good news. John Lyon has asked myself to carry out this latest investigation into MP’s expenses..

    Now, I don’t want to prejudice my findings at this early stage but I think its fair to say that

    1} no law has been broken
    2} He has acted completely within the rules
    3} there is no contradiction between these rules and any other interpretation of the rules that may already have been made in the cases of J. Smith or E.Balls etc
    4} he had already checked with the commons allowances committee and they had already cleared the practice.
    5} An investigation would not be in the public’s interests.

    Further I’m sure I’ll find that since the house price crash Mr McNulty has LOST money and should be compensated for his loss.
    I expect too that somewhere in my conclusion there will be a bit about the need for more transparency and how this would be facilitated by increasing MP’s untaxable expenses by 400%.

    The Committee on Standards in Public Life website says:

    “The Committee is formed of 10 people – in addition to the Chair, there are three political members appointed by the Prime Minister on the recommendation of the leaders of the Labour Party, the Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrat Party and six independents appointed by the Prime Minister. Committee members are appointed for up to three years.”

    Completely independent then…..

    Little will change – a minor concession here, a little tidying up there.

    Good news – the committee is only thinking about an enquiry, and even if they go ahead it won’t be until the Autumn.

    I suggest that you all download a copy of the Green Book and read Chapter 3 on the ACA. You will, quickly, realise just how many rules McNumpty and Jackboots have broken.

    For example, there is the “above reproach” condition – McNumpty fails that one.

    Then, there is the “value for money” clause – he fails that, as well.

    Then, there is the clause that says, that if he stays overnight, within 20 miles of his constituency, he is regarded as having overnighted in his constituency. As his home is 11 miles from his constituency, he overnights “in his constituency” every night – he has no right to a second home.

    I note with great interest that Tony McNulty was one of the gravy train MP’s that voted to keep generous expenses undisclosed, one can now see why!

    How Westminster can continue to allow MP’s to legally or otherwise milk the taxpayer in this odious way without major repercussions is astounding.

    While soldiers die for little or nothing, health care suffers cut after cut and suffering patients die from lack of cash for drugs these parliamentary terrorists continue to milk the country’s tax coffers and their only pitiful defence is “its ok it fine its allowed” even when its not allowed they carry on knowing they won’t be fined, jailed or made to pay it back with interest.

    Disgraceful shameful and morally corrupt!

    The sense of decay and indifference itself is palpable.

    You have to laugh.

    If an MP stops claiming then they are admitting that they have been on the take – so they can’t stop, they just have to hope they don’t get caught.

    Mind you, as being caught apparently carries no penalty, carrying on is clearly the best policy for the selfish MP on the take.

    The controversy with Spliff was; whether a home meant staying 3 or 4 nights a week. McNutter has admitted he only spent 1 or 2 nights a month. So when McNutter says he has done nothing wrong, he is lying and knows he is lying.

    as I’ve said (http://anon126.blogspot.com/2009/03/new-labour-investigation-ruse-to.html ) this inquiry is a crude attempt to shut down the debate by Brown. He’ll do anything to make the argument about the conservatives and the system rather than being about the wrong doing of a labour minister.

This man is more than a cretinous shit, he’s an arrogant, amoral wanker. He was very happy to call the population for everything so now he deserves what’s coming to him – which will be absolutely nothing – more’s the pity. Other than that he’s a very nice man.

    Another seemingly up to no good?

    A Labour MEP housed in an office in Labour’s Durham County Council HQ at a rent of a mere £1,642, when his General Expenditure Allowance is £40,000. The office has been used since at least 1991, starting at a mere £1,000.

    What wasn’t mentioned…

    A mere mile away in Durham city centre another MEP, obviously paying commercial rates, is paying £23,000 to cover rent, rates, utilities and upkeep. Check it out on the link below.

    http://www.fionahall.org.uk/accounts.phtml

    Mr Hughes has an advantage of at least £20,000 per year and for at least 18 years. Where on earth is all the money – estimated at missed revenue for the council of £300,000 minimum or should such a man, if proven guilty, have to pay this back?

    OK

    Enough is Enough! The straw that broke this camel’s back, and now I will say what everyone is really thinking.

    Caught in the act and red handed: (…of breaking a law? – well maybe…. We will see Mr McNulty), but of abusing office of behaving DIShonourably, absolutely. The public is being disrepsected by its own servant/s. Wasting our money, while preaching for restraint, double dealing and believing the public can be duped and will not stand up for itself.

    The government is a lame duck, dead man walking, you choose the metaphor…. Worse! this government is still in power, every day, every hour that passes, every minute, every second worsens our….your current condition AND your future.

    So, we have a choice. Yes we do!, because in this country we have a voice. (Brown will carry on like the captain of The Titanic, clinging to the wheel as we all drown.) The Government will not step down, but they are unelectable! Everybody knows it but nobody will say it. Check the odds at the bookies, they REALLY know it. Labour will be history at the next election.

    It is our job, my job, your job, to push – BUY EVERY POSSIBLE MEANS, for a General Election as soon as posible.

    This country, your country, is Economically in the worst condition since the depression.

    An Honourable Government would step aside. Honourable members of pariliament in Government would move for a Vote of no confidence in their own Prime Minister, but whips and spin prevent them (despite the fact that if they did.. publicly.. they may just preserve their own jobs!…) Can you persuade them?, can we?

    Every moment in the status quo worsens our future. Move for change NOW. Push through every possible channel for a General Election Now, soon, we CANNOT WAIT for 2010. Why should we? We should not, there is no reason.

    Lobby, Blog, Post, Talk, It really does not matter who you believe will win, Action NOW is required. If your party of choice is playing a political waiting game, believing that this Labour Government will allow them to win providing they wait and bide their time, then point out that this in itself is irresponsible as time is of the essence ; Implore and Plead for them to act- It is their responsibility to be ready to help you and the country, through this crisis and away from the impotent government.

    You, we everybody can make a difference. Act NOW for a positive future!

    I doubt McNumpty stopped claiming these ‘allowance’ since last January. More likely he just hadn’t got round to claiming them yet. Presumably he doesn’t need the money just now. If McNumpty’s fiddle had not been highlighted in the Sunday Mail, he would have just carried on claiming. Business as usual.

    What he’s done, and what a lot of the other self-serving bastards do as a matter of course might not be illegal, but that doesn’t make it right. Shades of Harridan Harperson’s comment about the ‘Court of Public Opinion’ making yet another accurate judgement about the rights and wrongs of what MPs are paid.

    I wonder which way Gordon fucking Brown’s moral compass is pointing these days. He could stop this fiddle at a stroke, but will he? Don’t hold your breath. They all know they have become unelectable, so they might as well screw the taxpayer for a bit more before they are consigned to the political shit heap.

    Lamp posts, ropes, etc. Too good for these bastards. I’m warming to public stoning…
