Shamed Rent-Swapper Linda Riordan to Sell Up
1000 Majority MP Promises to Payback Profits

Disgraced rent-swapping Labour MP Linda Riordan has told her the Halifax Courier she will sell her London flat and pay back the capital gains or profit to the taxpayer. Last week it was revealed that hard left Riordan skimmed £1,000-a-month profit by renting out her mortgaged London home while claiming rent for another nearby house on expenses.

“I have decided to place the flat on the market this week, and after speaking to Iain Mckenzie this weekend (the person renting the flat) he has agreed to move out as soon as is practically possible. I have always abided by the rules. Furthermore, I have agreed to pay IPSA back any capital gains. I will, on the assumption that my flat sells, pay any profit to the taxpayer. Of course I cannot speak for other MPs or ex-MPs who are or may continue to make profits.”

Housing benefit fraudsters go to jail when they are caught out, MPs can just promise not to do it again. Shameless Linda Riordan didn’t even say sorry. She only has a majority of around 1,000 – the people of Halifax know what to do in 2015…

    Linda has done a quick back of the envelope calculation and worked out her private sector/open market value is considerably less than her public remuneration, even when calculated net of the swappage.

    She’s therefore taken a sensible, commercial capitalist decision to hand in one in a desperate attempt to keep the other.

      Would be sensible though to keep an eye on her expenses claims until the 2015 election.

    What will see do? The old trick of sending a cheque to HMRC who can only credit it to her account meaning that she has to pay less income tax etc in the future? So she still keeps the money.

    When you inspire that chasing money is the right way to go then you will get people doing exactly that. Human nature takes over.

Sarah Vine writes of Esther McVey…

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
