Warsi Under Pressure

Sunday Sleaze

Baroness Warsi is under widespread attack in the Sunday papers. The Sunday Times accuses her of pocketing the full £165 allowance while paying £75 to stay in a Premier Inn. Recently released from prison, the Lord Hanningfield helpfully explains “as I said at my trial, 85% of peers were claiming the full allowances”. Most got away with the fiddle however.

Already in trouble for staying at the house of Wafik Moustafa of the Conservative Arab Network, claiming expenses which she says she passed to her aide Naweed Khan.

Wafik Moustafa says he never received any payments from Sayeeda or Naweed.

The Sunday Telegraph follows up on last week’s failure to declare rental income story with a story about her failure to declare shareholdings in a spice firm. The spice firm is run by someone with a somewhat radical pedigree according to the Sunday Telegraph. The Mail makes hay with her Saudi funded trips.

Scotland Yard told the Mail that they had received an official complaint.  Labour scent blood…

UPDATE: Am told that it was the BNP’s Nick Griffin MEP that made the complaint to the police.

UKIP’s Patrick O’Flynn:

“I think Mail online comments are a telling indication of public opinion.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
