Yet More Unexplained Cheques in Wandsworth Fraud Scandal

The longer Wandsworth Council keep their heads in the sand about their audit committee councillor and a missing  £20,000 from Tory coffers, the murkier the cover up looks. So far Robert Morritt has claimed that the blank cheques he was writing to himself were for his “expenses”. That excuse cannot work all the time though…

As Guido understands it, Wandsworth Conservative Group has a detailed system in place for the purchase of stamps. This system, which involves cheques being signed by two signatories and presented with a special guarantee card, has been used for years. In the first five months of 2008 WCG forked out some £20,000 for stamps in the normal manner. Why then did Morritt himself claim a further £5,000 during this period to purchase stamps on WCG’s behalf?

On 26 February 2008 a cheque was written to Morritt for £2,000, apparently to buy stamps, while on 2 April he was paid another £3,000 for the same reason. £2,000 worth of stamps were bought using the regular method on 20 February – six days before Morritt’s first purchase – while another £1,000 worth were bought on 31 March, two days before his second cheque was issued. Why were so many stamps needed in such a short space of time? Why did Morritt deviate from the standard procedure and buy the stamps himself, with no counter-signature? When are Wandsworth Council going to stamp down…

    The price of a 2nd class stamp in 2008? About 30p I think.
    So £5,000 would buy some 16,666 stamps.

    Seems rather a lot.

    The good thing about stamps is their face value remains.
    So they are very easy to sell on to a business or company for about 3/4 value.

    Not that I would know anything about that. Quango junior runs an internet business from the large garage/office/pool room of the 2nd home.

    Back in the sunshine days of 2008 MPs used to do the same expenses trick.

    Receipt for ‘various items’ -£25k -please pay via fees office and hurry up about it!

    Weary Tory says:

    Andrew Efiong – This is not public money and is not a matter for the Council’s Standards’ Committee until there is a Police investigation which is not going to happen unless the Wandsworth Tories ask for one. The Wandsworth Conservative Group referred to in the various stories is the grouping of the 3 Conservative constituency parties in Wandsworth, not the Conservative Group on the Council. The ‘victims’ in this case are the members of the 3 Wandsworth Conservative constituencies and not Wandsworth Council Tax Payers.

    The question that needs to be asked is not ‘Why is Morrit such a thieving bastard’?

    Guido knows. It is a better question to ask ‘Why will the people who Morrit has obviously stolen from not report him to the Police?’

    There is something amiss here, that involves a whole load of people, not just the fat, thieving, lying Moritt.

    Why would anyone in their right mind give anyone else Carte Blanche with their cheque book?

    Time will tell.

    Because he could. The system made it easy with no balances and plenty of Cheques. Exactly the same reason why MPs and Lords exploited and probably still exploit the system. Every claim should carry a receipt and they should be authorised for every claim in the first place. Letting Lords and MPs have a limit before authorisation or receipt is required is a licence for them to fiddle the petty cash.

    Take Diane Abbott. She says black cabs will not pick her up, she lives in spitting distance of her place of work yet her claims for Taxi fares are a record breaker.

    Were Westminster one of those Councils who thought they were being ever so clever putting Council tax money in too good to be true Icelandic Bank accounts?

    Brown actually had the nerve to say no one had lost a penny. The truth is along the lines that not all that money paid into those Icelandic Banks has found its way back to the Council Tax payer. Instead there has been a payment from the good old British taxpayer to cover it all over.

    When the Government says it is in negotiations with the Icelandic Government we all know what that means

    Guido whilst the guy may or may not be crooked this type of think happens all the time within associations – i mean being expedient rather than going down the standard route. I have done it myself many times eg paying for leaflet printing, envelopes, stamps even the rent on the office in order to get it done and then claimed back the money owed – I know many others who have done the same. Though we all had receipts to back it up.

    The statute of limitations is 6 years. These purchases should still be on record somewhere. If the guy is (v. unlikely) innocent then he can get the receipts still now and clear his name otherwise he needs to be taken to the cleaners.

    He admires her. She has beautiful blonde hair, a slightly upturned nose, a small but oh so pretty mouth and small but beautiful breasts. Her nipples are a delicate pink and the aureole are of the wider type that contrast at the edges rather than merge into the surrounding skin.

    The innie is purrfect and is quite the nicest he has seen. His eyes wander down further to the holy of holies in which, for the first time, he poured so many of his particles into. The lips are slightly parted as if he had just withdrawn. He becomes tumescent for the umpteenth time but resists waking her from her sleep, a mark of true love.

    He reflects that the hair surrounding the area detracts from her beauty and finds himself wishing she had shaved before they came face to face for the first time only 12 hours ago. But that is just a minor quibble.

Liturgy and Faith: what better milieu for someone destined to choreograph and promote the ideals and ideology of …you know who!
    You know, M’Lady, I’m often glad that I’m not a Protestant, but a member of the Church of England, so do not have to subscribe to all this ‘Antichrist’, ‘666’, nonsense. Do you, perhaps believe also that Joanna Southcott’s box (no grinning, please!) should have been opened by The Bishops? Do you, like Charles Kingsley, think of Jesuits always in terms of ‘sneaking round’? Are you quite convinced that millions more heroic Protestants were burned under ‘Bloody Mary’, than ever Recusants were put to death under Henry, Edward, and Elizabeth? Do you unshakeably hold to the view that Monasteries and Convents were not only centres of idleness and gluttony, but hot-beds of lust?

    PArt of the problem in dealing with this is that Morritt has crammed his cronies into key decision making posts. He used his position as agent to fill the management commitee with stupid people who would never catch him out. When one of the few smart ones actually did, the others waged a ferocious battle to undermine that person and vilify him. In the end, because no one would listen he just walked away. Others who were similarly concerned by what was happening were also forced out.

    This lying thief has yet to make a comment on all of this.

    Either: It’s untrue, in which case he has to sue Guido asap and publicly deny the allegations-

    OR (as we know to be the case)

    He has to resign now and work out just how he is going to repay this money that he stole. Since we have heard NOTHING from Mr Morritt thus far – one can only assume that he knows this cannot be denied.

    His pilfering of the Wandsworth tory coffers was noticed by many and as several have commented, is not really the issue here. Thieves will always be thieves etc. The issue that concerns me is why no notice was taken of the concerns of theft when they were repeatedly raised at many levels.

    I wonder how much more is still to be revealed by Guido – the total amount keeps rising…lets see when this gets picked up by the national media.

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.”
