Labour: MacShane’s Career is Over

Labour have been forced to suspend Denis MacShane yet again:

“These are very serious findings concerning Denis MacShane and we accept his statement this morning that his career as a Labour MP is effectively over. In the light of the report’s recommendations to the House the Labour Party has suspended Denis MacShane with immediate effect, pending a full NEC enquiry. We will be talking to Denis MacShane about his future and the best course of action for him and for his constituency.”

If MacShane has one shred of decency left he would resign today.

    Denis MacShane faces 12 month suspension

    Former Labour minister Denis MacShane is facing suspension from the Commons for 12 month. A Parliamentary committee found that he had submitted 19 false invoices “plainly intended to deceive” Parliament’s expenses authority. The committee said it was the “gravest case” which has come to them for adjudication. Mr MacShane said he was “shocked and saddened” and was now considering his position.

      Submitting false invoices must be theft, or fraud (I am not a lawyer). If there were a credible justice system and an effective, uncorrupted, police service in the UK, McShane ought to be arrested very soon and put on trial.

        Quite; but at least we now know the tariff. 19 proven offences gets you 12 months ie around one and a half offences per month.

    The NEC are going to have a chat with McShane about his future and the best course of action for him and his constituents! In other words they are going to look at ways to soften the blow for him and the Party.

    Outside the incestuous world of politics and the public sector McShane would have had his collar felt, he would be prosecuted and if found guilty thrown in the slammer. His position as an MP makes him worse than any benefits cheat.

    The best course of action for him and his constituents, if he had a shred of decency, would be to resign forthwith but he is a politician and a Labour one at that, so decency is in short supply.

      Agreed – what a looney insinuating that all this is a BNP plot to “get at” a well known supporter and campaigner for the Jewish community. Talk about the looney left!

      He was also saying the MacShame had been ‘vindicated’ by the police investigation which was the most blatent load of bollux I have heard on WATO in a very long while. That investigation will now have access to alot more information and evidence, and charges are inevitable in my opinion.
