Moran Lawyer Threatens Post-Leveson Press

£53,000 expenses cheat Margaret Moran’s lawyer has delivered a withering rant about how terribly out of order the press are for reporting her crimes:

piggymoran“The more vengeful press, who hound her at her front door, seem to think that the only way someone can be demonstrably mentally ill is if they are in a straitjacket in a padded cell. The reports back in April all agree that she suffers from this mental illness. Hounding a mentally ill woman is a dangerous and vile thing to do, at any time, particularly post the Leveson conclusions. It could have led to an increased risk of suicide. There will always be sections of the media who believe it’s a huge con. But they’ve not read all the evidence.”

At least Craig Oliver did it subtly…

          I despise lying scumbags like this woman. If she was suffering from a mental illness she’d be unable to go to the pub even with loads of meds. She is a liar and a cheat and has much coming to her.I believe that whoever cheats and lies always gets paid back. Psychiatrists really are the limit and are not to be trusted in any way.Why are they so gullible???? She is just upset that she got caught, nothing more. Granted she might be on the menopause but to use mental illness as an excuse is downright evil.

          • Aydodge E. Scheisster QC says:

            Actually, just a plain-vanilla civil claim would do. Under the doctrine of issue preclusion, the finding of fact that she did, in fact, take the money, which finding was in a proceeding in which she was (A) adequately represented and (B) had every protection of due process of law and (C) she had every incentive to present a robust defence on the merits to the charges, and she STILL lost, means that she cannot now prevent such a finding from being entered as evidence in a civil trial to recover the money, based on a good old ground like misrepresentation or the like; good luck trying to overcome THAT judgment to prevent another one being taken against you. The main question is who’s going to file the case and whether, amongst others, HMRC for example (based on the money being an illicit form of income), anybody wants to press the matter.

    Five members of the same traveller family have been found guilty of keeping their own private workforce. William Connors, 52, Brida (Mary) Connors, 48, sons John, 29, and James, 20, and son-in-law Miles Connors, 23, were charged over the work scam. Victims were made to work for as little as £5 a day in Gloucestershire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire.

    There were loud outbursts from members of the Connors family in the public gallery as the guilty verdicts were returned. John Connors’ wife was carried from the court after trying to climb out of the public gallery into the dock. As she left, she said: “Please, please, I’m asking you no. Don’t do this.”

    Some were ordered to perform tasks, such as emptying the buckets used as toilets by the family. The court heard that many were beaten, hit with broom handles, belts, a rake and shovel, and were punched and kicked. On one occasion a worker had a hosepipe pushed down his throat and they were often made to strip for a “hosing down session” with freezing water.

      It is another simple example that there are sections of the UK population that have no basic policing.

      It does not matter who they are; bankers, politicians, trusts, charities, ethnic groups etc. (even the police) as soon as they feel safe from outside oversight they begin the slide into lawlessness.

      The benchmarks this shows is that full organized slavery actually gets noticed. So what is not being noticed?

      Why does this government still create and continue to support uncontrolled areas and groups that are without any oversight? Real oversight requires people to observe that are totally unconnected. Or allowing totally unconnected people to actually voice an issue before people are hurt.

If any MP earning £65,000+ (for what is for many of them part-time work according to the Register of Interests) doesn’t like it, they can resign and we’ll have an election to fill their seat. There will still be plenty of takers only they will be far better people, not entering politics for the gravy train, but to serve their country. If they do a good job, their reward will be re-election. Just like it used to be. Time for we voters to take back our country.

    Was she ‘mentally ill’ when she concocted her false invoices. If so she should be locked up indefinitely as she may do it again

    Christ, yet another politician threatening ‘Leveson’ to get themselves outta the shit! Right, this has made my mind firmly up: under NO circumstances whatsoever ever, ever, ever should any politician have anything to do with regulation of the press.

    Actually, Margaret Moran was too ill to attend court because of an accident.

    While walking to the courthouse, she dropped a pound coin. As she bent down to pick it up, it hit her on the back of the head.

    Well I for one hope she gets well soon so that she can do the time her crime deserves .

    Socialism is all about making out what a caring person you are when at heart you are a selfish nasty greedy count.

    A spokesperson for Mc Shame has just said that his client is feeling pretty depressed about being asked to resign as an MP this depression may become more entrenched particularly if any charges are laid against him in the near future.

    Another Headshrinker says:

    She is not ill! That shrink from the priory saying there would be issues if she was removed from her home! Absolute bollocks, won’t stop her going for a pint!
    There is nothing wrong with her, she has got away with it, hope she gets brain, arse and throat cancer, of the terminal variety.
    I’ll have to stop sitting on this fence!

      An MP says:

      We all loathe this odious man. He’ll do anything to promote himself and to line his own pocket. He’s so desperate to receive a knighthood or peerage and that will be given over dead bodies.

    A less well paid lawyer says:

    You can name her lawyer, you know! It’s not illegal. The Telegraph gave it. Jim Sturman QC. Probably pretty expensive judging by his CV:

    http://www.jimsturmanqc.com/

    I think it would have been interesting to see the judge’s face when he brought up Leveson. Either nodding sagely or glancing at the clock. I’d like to think it was the latter.

    Andy says:

    This is a travesty of justice.

    She got away with prison because she put on the greatest performance.
    Mentally ill my arse. She is not mentally ill, but she is demented in the sense that she really thinks people do not see through her phony posturing.

    A stiff sentence would have brought this con-woman a little further down to earth and might have helped hammer home the message that politicians cannot continue to get away with this. But this is a mere slap on the wrist and insult to the millions that have chisel and scam to get by.

    If we are to stand any chance of improving our lot, politicians must first eliminate their own ignorance to greed. I will not hold my breath, but until this happens, the corrupt fish of government will always rot from the head down.

    Did you know there are 16,610 mentally ill people in Luton South. That’s how many voted for her when she was last elected to Parliament.

    I'm on expenses says:

    Saw her in a gastropub outside Poole a couple of months ago quaffing wine with a group of peeps laughing uproariously. If I ever get nicked for anything I’m going to sob through the court proceedings and get a psychiatrist mate to certify me as a mentalist. Should get off easily.

    I'm a proper nutter says:

    Has it not been known for centuries that being mental and criminal are not mutually exclusive? Didn’t save Mad Frankie Fraser from the slammer did it?

    Gladiatrix says:

    Erm, Guids darling, I hate to break this to you but Ms Moran’s solicitor hasn’t actually done anything wrong and s/he is not threatening the press. It is a solicitor’s duty to represent their client robustly, if s/he didn’t try to protect his/her client from being doorstepped the Law Society and the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority would want to know why.

      I'm a proper nutter says:

      Bollocks. She’s a thief. There’s consistent paper evidence and a confession and witnesses. She stole from the public, its in the public interest to ask her about this as she goes unconvicted / unpunished.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
