Mrs Illsley Loses Job Too

A quick peek at the as-of-yet updated Register of Members Interests shows it was a double resignation blow in the Illsley household last week. With Eric pocketing five grand by remaining in office right up until his sentencing, presumably Dawn got an extra month of pay too:

ILLSLEY, Eric (Barnsley Central)

I employ my wife, Dawn Illsley, as Secretarial Assistant.

Plenty of time for Mrs Illsley to visit Wormwood Scrubs now though…

    I employ my husband as tea boy…

    The bugger will be moved to hotel next week to serve out the rest of his sentence.

    Ben Elton says:

    It is a disgrace that this woman should lose her job taken away from her even though she is not guilty of any criminal offence except to be married to a former LAbour MP. At first they came for the coal miners but you said nothing because you were not a coal miner
    then they came for a glass of milk but you said nothing becuase you were not glasses of milk
    then they will come for the BBC that great British institution but you will say nothing as you are not a great British institutionalised!

    You can’t. She’s a girl (for electoral purposes).

    I wouldn’t worry over much. I am sure Eric is busy putting his autobiography together. Mrs I. will have a bit of free time to do some proofreading for him

    Ben Elton should do something useful with his life – such as volunteering as a stand-in for a paper target at Bisley…

    It makes me weep. says:

    That’s an interesting list you have linked to Guido. The Fucking fuckers are still at it. They should not directly employ anyone. Their staff should be hired by the house of commons and conform to civil service rules. Nothinmg has changed in the Westminster trough.

    If Mrs I had been employed for over 2 years, she would get 3 months redundancy money actually.

    Spose I’d better go round there and arseole console her.

    Ooo I just can’t stand that hideously white harriet hormone or her idiot beard. What an unwholesome pair of nonces. Together their intellect fails to challenge an ant or a termite.

    Tom Baldwin says:

    The Bank of England downgraded its growth forecast for this year today after the shock contraction in the economy in the fourth quarter of 2010 but suggested that the UK should avoid a double-dip recession.

    Inflation is likely to remain “well above” the 2% target over the next year or so and fall back in 2012 but only if interest rates rise at least twice by the end of the year, and the conservative led coalition is replaced, the Bank added.

    Bank of England Governor Mervyn King said that, despite the spike in inflation, it should fall back next year “but the extent to which it will do is uncertain”.

    Annnoyperson says:

    Perhaps the Labour Party will have her stand for election? After all, is there anything in the rules forbidding the employment of prisoners and ex cons by MPs?

    Pretty inexcusable sticking the boot into relatives without providing any concrete evidence that they have done something wrong. Are wives and kids now fair game for Guido?

    Not quite sure how the lads would react to seeing a number 11 target wearing glasses. Worth a try though!

    Ben Elton’s going down like a lead balloon in Australia:


    Perhaps we can persuade Billy Bragg, Jo Brand and all the rest of the BBC right-on crowd a great new career awaits them down under.

    It’s so unfair when your employer goes bust and you have to lose your job, like I did in January 2009.

    I blame the evil Tory government.

    Grumpy Old Man says:

    Err….Ben…. Mrs. Illsley was employed by Mr. Illsley in a private contract between him and her. When Mr. Illsley resigned as an MP there was no longer a job for her. No doubt she is entitled to some sort of redundency package, possibly as a Parliamentary expense.

    Wilson took the milk out of the mouths of schoolchildren first. Baroness Thatcher merely completed Wilson’s savage cut.

    The miner’s were manipulated by the Communist Scargill into an undemocratic and violent challenge to a duly elected government. Coal mines were closed because there was no longer a need for vast quantities of coal.

    The BBC is an institutionalised left-wing bastion and produces partisan and misleading programs with a left-wing bias. It needs reform.

    Worthless Lib Dem Pledge says:

    MPs should not be allowed to employ family members- Clegg and Cameron were going to clean up politics. They are prepared to spend hundreds of millions of pounds of taxpayers money on AV that only 50 Lib Dem MPs want. I thought there was dire fiscal circumstances causing them to make cuts!! Cameron is suggesting that if there are 100,000 people petitioning for something it could be debated in Parliament- he’s a piss taker…

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
