Warsi Cleared on Expenses Mystery

According to Joe Murphy of the Standard, Warsi has got away it over her expenses mystery:

Refresh your memory of the allegations and fall out here.

UPDATE: CCHQ confirm:

Presumably she was able to prove that she paid the cash to someone, given that her landlord at the time claimed he received no money.


Cameron has said that “I am pleased that these allegations have been dismissed by the Lords Commissioner.” He mentions that Warsi as Co-Chairman will be leading the Tory Police commisioner elections “big summer of campaigning”. Moved in the autumn then…

        David Laws Lib Dem Fiddler says:

        Moral authority question: do Lords and MPs pay tax on their expenses? Do MPs pay stamp duty on their second homes? This appears worse than companies buying homes to avoid tax duty as the tax payer pays for MPs second homes. MPs paid whether they attend Westminster or not, pensions still at RPI. What about the expense scandal where MPs rented rooms from relatives, did the relative pay tax on the rental? Subsidies at Westminster restaurants, is this a benefit in kind?

        Come on Guido, we want the moral authority on MPs taxes exposed. They hounded others, it is about time the media went on the offensive. A lot of tax avoiders are still MPs and in the cabinet. Kelly report still siting on the shelf.

    Police numbers down at last.

    Policing and Criminal Justice Minister Nick Herbert said the reduced numbers were a result of “necessary savings” as part of the deficit reduction programme.

    Still they don’t speak the English that the proles would understand. Get CCHQ on to the high street and see how many know what a deficit reduction programme is. It’s not Political Science!

      And as government policies bite harder and harder, more will turn to crime, whether it be individuas or businesses. Just when there are fewer police to deal with it. You couldn’t make it up – a criminals wet dream.

    Just when your readers were getting excited about a Warsigate, the powers that be have dismissed the charges against her. Like they say one crow ain’t gonna hack another crows eyes out. So she lives to fight another campaign with a spot of egg on her blouse. Hopefully the good Barumess will have learnt to keep her bookkeeping in good order, so next time things might not be so obvious!

      Obvious or not the public will always view her with suspicion.She needs to have been cleared by a criminal court IMO.
      Being “cleared” under the old pals act is not quite the same;brings to mind the scottish “not proven” verdict.

      A small correction, we became a fascist state under NuLiebor, otherwise known as the National Socialist Party.

      Sadly Cameron’s masters have deemed that this sorry state of affairs should continue.

        Old Tory Bigot says:


        These lefty idiots seem quite oblivious to the facist, authoritarian tendencies ingrained in all socialist movements. It’s the only way socialism can be made to work – by keeping the people down under the jackboot of constant surveillance and police thuggery.

        New Labour was masters of this. Coalition not much better – but at least I don’t have some nasty little copper demanding my ID card on the street.

    She DID get away with it, indeed!

    However, perhaps that is a bit of natural justice. After all, her Islamic “mates” were trying to stuff her out of revenge……….. never liked that sort of “justice”………
