Privileged MacShane Evidence Now Available to the Police
New Police Complaint Made

A source close to the Standards and Privileges Committee pointed out to Guido that the police could not use the evidence gathered by the Committee during their investigation because it was subject to parliamentary privilege. Now that it has been published however it is no longer privileged and can be used by the forces of the law.

Guido has spoken to m’learned counsel and they have confirmed this is the case. He has therefore just put in a new complaint to the Met:

This ain’t over…

    Utterly shameless. No apology, no contrition. What a cunt says:


    MacShane is a fucking crooked c-unt. Chickens, home, roost.

        Statement on his own website

        Statement from Denis MacShane
        This is all I am saying and I will not be adding anything or doing interviews

        “I am shocked and saddened that the BNP has won its 3 year campaign to destroy my political career as a Labour MP despite a full police investigation which decided not to proceed after investigations and interviews. I am glad the Committee notes that there is no question of personal gain. Clearly I deeply regret that the way I chose to be reimbursed for costs related to my work in Europe and in combating anti-semitism, including being the Prime Minister’s personal envoy, has been judged so harshly. I remain committed to work for progressive values, for Britain playing a full part in Europe, and for combating anti-semitism even though I can no longer undertake this work as a Labour MP. I am consulting family and friends as I consider my position and study the full implications of the report. I am obviously desperately sorry for any embarrassment I have caused my beloved Labour Party and its leader Ed Miliband whom I greatly admire.”

      It’s pretty shitty, arguing, as his tool for a friend did, that this will discourage other politicians from standing up to the BNP and other ‘far right’ groups. Sure, yeah, we all have to be careful not to abuse our positions of trust, in case someone who isn’t prepared to turn a blind eye finds out about it… Call me crazy, but should I do wrong, I don’t think I get a pass because the people who are on my case about it don’t like me very much. Tories would call that market forces in action, a tidy bit of self-regulation.

      Though there’s not much to choose from, we the public have a good idea of who the half decent pollys are, and we get particularly ticked off when they turn out to have feet of clay. McShane was always pretty slimey. Here’s a thought. If the expenses systen doesn’t work, fix it. Don’t duck out of the responsibility, like Edwina Curry on Hell’s Kitchen. Sooner or later, you’re going to get bollocked.

I absolutely agree that he deserves to be prosecuted (not to mention an eternity roasting in the fires of hell). This does not alter the fact that as far as I am aware, parliamentary privilege does not melt away simply because evidence has been published.

          Privilege will certainly apply to the Committee’s report and I expect to the report of the Commissioner to the Committee — neither of those documents could be adduced as evidence in any court outside Parliament without breaching article IX of the Bill of Rights.

          I suspect this also applies to evidence expressly submitted to the Committee as part of its inquiry, and potentially to evidence gathered by the Commissioner.

          Did Counsel do that work for you pro bono, Guido?

          Jimbo, parliamentary privilege does not extend to criminal behaviour or stealing public funds.

            *sighs* That’s not the point. Privilege does not mean immunity from prosecution.


          • This is criminal fraud says:

            The expense claims are not subject to Parliamentary privillege. The fraudulant signatures are in the Public Domain. There is no obstacle to questioning McShane re these claims. If they cannot be justified he is toast.


          • Jimmy says:

            No one is suggesting he can’t be prosecuted and I agree he should be. Guido is claiming however that the Select Committee evidence can be used. This is nonsense.

          Jimmy, you old Labour apologist! History has shown that the vast majority of expenses fiddlers have been socialist blowhards belonging to your beloved party. And before you start chanting “duck houses and moats”, those expense claims weren’t authorised or paid out. Tell me again, how many Labour polticians have been convicted of fraud?

          Your unsound ideological bias is showing and adversely affecting your thought reasoning processes.

            I’m simply pointing out that McShane has been deservedly given the boot whereas Laws has been brought back into government.

    Had to love the final sentence in the committee’s conclusions

    “58. We have considered our recommendation as to penalty carefully and at length. It could be argued that the offence required expulsion from the House because of the repeated use of invoices generated by Mr MacShane himself, invoices which did not give a true account of the activities which had been claimed for, which gave a wholly misleading impression of the status, and indeed existence, of the EPI, and because of Mr MacShane’s responsibility
    for ensuring that those invoices were signed with a “nom de plume” purporting to come from a General Manager who did not in fact exist. In the event of being expelled, the Member would be free to stand in any subsequent by-election .”

    Er, does that mean in effect that he stole the monies and should be prosecuted for fraud?

    All of this political tittle tattle 7 newsnight should not divert attention from the fact that the price of gold is tanking.

    GOLD 1,679.40 -36.10 -2.10%

    Just heard some yooman rites lawyer blaming the B N P for Macshane’s downfall. MacShane is to blame for MacShane’s downfall, The B N P did not force him to steal computers or set up fraudulent companies.

    Funny that one former Tory deputy chairman went to prison – Jeffrey Archer,Could another one end up there?

      Blowing Whistles says:

      Archer still has some skeletons in his cupboard otherwise why hasn’t he been stripped of his Lordship?

      Lester Piggot – was done for tax evasion – AND had his knighthood stripped – so what is it with Archer … perhaps it’s something to do with the ‘stablishment covering the Rses of its own guilty.

    Ben Tasaninebobnote says:

    Isn’t there a practical evidence problem for the prosecution? The evidence is not the Committee’s published report, but the original documents it’s based on. If the HoC Committee of S & P refuses to allow Plod to inspect the invoices, letters, emails etc, the prosecution case can’t proceed.
    So if Bercow puts his little foot down, MacShane may never go to jail.
    Was MacShane given this assurance when he resigned yesterday, I wonder.

    TrollhunterX says:

    It’s pretty shitty, arguing, as his tool for a friend did, that this will discourage other politicians from standing up to the BNP and other ‘far right’ groups. Sure, yeah, we all have to be careful not to abuse our positions of trust, in case someone who isn’t prepared to turn a blind eye finds out about it… Call me crazy, but should I do wrong, I don’t think I get a pass because the people who are on my case about it don’t like me very much. Tories would call that market forces in action, a tidy bit of self-regulation.

    Though there’s not much to choose from, we the public have a good idea of who the half decent pollys are, and we get particularly ticked off when they turn out to have feet of clay. McShane was always pretty slimey. Here’s a thought. If the expenses systen doesn’t work, fix it. Don’t duck out of the responsibility, like Edwina Curry on Hell’s Kitchen. Sooner or later, you’re going to get bollocked.

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
