Luciana Berger’s Cash Questions

It’s a pretty rare event nowadays that someone stands up in the Commons and asks the Chancellor to cut taxes, even more so when the question comes from the opposition Labour benches. Guido was surprised to learn that the shadow climate change minister, lovely Luciana Berger, suggested George Osborne should accelerate plans to cut tax for property developers back in October 2010:

“To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will bring forward proposals to make entrepreneurs’ relief from capital gains tax available to those who rent out property in the private rented sector.”

A tax cut for property developers, an interesting idea you might think. Could this sudden bout of entrepreneur friendly policy advocacy possibly be anything to do with the fact that Luciana trousered a £4,000 donation months earlier from one Anwar Ansari, a property developer? In June 2010 a property developer bungs Luciana several thousand pounds, then only a few months later she stands up in the House and asks the Chancellor to give property developers a tax break. Coincidence?

What’s more, Berger’s CLP then pocketed another £2,500 just a few months down the line from Allerton Priory LLP, a holding company for a property portfolio run by the Hanlons, a father and son property development duo. Could there possibly be a link between these generous donations from property developers and Luciana lobbying the government to cut their taxes? Once is a coincidence, twice is a case for the standards committee…

    The end of the BBC says:

    Covering up one p*edo is bad enough. Covering up two should mark the end of the BBC as a publicly funded institution.

    News veteran John Simpson has claimed that the BBC gagged him when he tried to expose the behaviour of an unnamed children’s radio presenter who fits the profile of corporation legend Derek McCulloch. Simpson spoke in thinly veiled terms about a sex ab*ser he called “Uncle Dick”, who was famous as a children’s radio entertainer from the 1930s to the 60s. Simpson told The Sun that the ab*ser was one of the BBC’s biggest names from the 1920s until his death in 1967.

    McCulloch is best remembered as “Uncle Mac” in BBC Radio’s immensely popular Children’s Favouriites and Children’s Hour and for playing the Larry the Lamb character in Toytown. His sign-off line, “Goodnight children, everywhere”, was heard by four million youngsters who tuned in to every show.

    Distinguished foreign correspondent Simpson said: “Week after week, children from all over the country would win competitions to visit the BBC and meet Uncle Dick. He would welcome them, show them around, give them lunch, then take them to the gents and interfere with them,” claimed Simpson in his book Strange Places, Questionable People. “If parents complained, the director general’s office would write saying the nation wouldn’t understand such an accusation against a much-loved figure.”

    Simpson said he uncovered the allegations while researching the presenter’s obituary in 1967. He said an unnamed woman branded the man believed to be McCulloch “an evil old bastard”. “I hope he died in agony,” she added.

    IBTimes UK contacted the BBC and asked if McCulloch’s activities were under investigation as part of two investigations into sex abuse at the BBC unveiled by current director general George Entwistle. A spokesman said: “The information will be shared with the BBC investigations unit and the police and we will look into these allegations as part of the Jimmy Savile review.”

    McCulloch was so popular during his time at the BBC that members of the royal family would be taken on studio tours by him. McCulloch was rewarded for his work with an OBE in 1964.

    The quantity of pickle has been reduced over the years, in much the same way that cream eggs and Mars Bars are much smaller than they once were.

    The problem with that theory is that although all of her constituents are well placed and overly qualified to go rob a copy of the Liverpool Echo, they either can’t read, or they are so off their tits by 10:00 am, they’ll think their chips have fallen out of it, and spend the rest of the day searching.

    Why should property developers be given tax subsidies for what they supposedly do best ?

    The woman behind this is obviously deranged unless she has been wined and dined by someone or has family connections .

    Every man woman and child should be treated the same I say .

    Trafford Council yesterday told all the staff they had not sacked that they would be forced next year to take an additional five days holiday unpaid .

    If this applied throughout the country and included the unemployed and disabled the country’s finances would be looking a lot better .

    This Government I tell you cannot think outside of the box and that is why it is failing the people it sheepishly claims to serve .

    “Wednesday, December 1, 2010

    Legal dog house
    I have been passed an interesting e-mail from a solicitor employed by Dr Ansari, who takes issue with the recent article about his donation to Luciana’s campaign.

    In the interest of fairness I will list his complaints, as this blog has always allowed a right of reply to humans named here.

    1. Dr Ansari claims he made no donation specifically to fund Luciana. (Although Luciana lists his donation in her declaration of interests – so is her declaration a lie? If so I apologize to Doctor Ansari and suggest he takes action against Luciana for defaming him.)

    2. Dr Anwar maintains that there was no major scandal associated with him. The proxy donor in question just happened to rent a flat from him. (Well I make no argument either way, however two Labour supporting newspapers linked him to the scandal, therefor it is fair for this blog to report that he was linked to it.)

    3. There is no evidence to suggest that the Labour NEC considered Dr Ansari unfit for office. (I make no such suggestion, merely quote the example given in the Daily Mirror by a Labour insider as to why someone might be vetoed by the NEC.)

    4. Dr Ansari has not submitted “controversial planning applications” in Liverpool. (Depends on how you define controversial? However the majority of planning applications he has made in Liverpool have either been refused or presumably would have been refused if he hadn’t withdrawn them. And as a private landlord making a profit by housing asylum seekers in hostels, he can hardly claim to be in an uncontroversial business)

    5. Dr Ansari has very little in the way of property interests in Greater Manchester. (So by “very little” is it accepted that he does indeed have property interests in Greater Manchester?)

    So I am glad we could clarify all that for Dr Ansari.”

    BrynGerard says:

    The donations came from companies owned by people who are known around Merseyside as ‘dodgy’. But that doesn’t make the allegations real. One company declared itself Bankrupt (Purple Apple) some time after the donation. The properties owned by this company are ones that were once public buildings in and around the city centre that lay empty for years.

    I think all the properties were sold to??? just before they Bankrupted the company.

    Wonder if Derek Hatton had owt to do with Purple Apple?

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.”
