Sadiq Khan’s Missing £3,000 Donation Declaration

As Guido reported in Sunday’s column, Labour backs have been put up by the promotion of Sadiq Khan to Shadow London Minister. The “No He Khant” slogan for Khan’s anticipated 2016 London Mayoral campaign is catching on. Meanwhile Guido has been passed some irregularities in Khan’s donations and Register of Members Interests. Fancy that…

According to Khan’s Register of Interests he took £3,000 at the last election from Matthew Ryder, the lefty lawyer at Matrix who lost the case bought by Chris Huhne’s former bi-sexual lover against the Mail, for calling her former bi-sexual. However, by the time Khan got round to declaring this donation to the Electoral Commission, it had doubled to £6,000. Which is odd…

Commons rules state that “Members are responsible for making a full disclosure of their interests” and regular readers will remember Harriet Harman’s husband Jack Dromey had to apologise to the House for incorrectly declaring payments this time last year. Like when he was busted with dubious expenses receipts, Khan will likely play the clerical error card. However the question remains - what happened to the other £3,000?

    Dearly Beloved,

    May the World be of Good Cheer, the Day has Dawned, The Hour is upon Us. May the Accused be Tried, even whilst they seek for PTHs to find an Escape which will come in some unexpected way known only to the Good Lord. We pray to God to give these dear people His comfort and His Strength to accept their Fate, whatever that might be, and a rest for them from the public spotlight into a Undisturbed and Inaccessible place for a Lasting Time. We pray also for the Strength and Guidance of the Judge and his Assistants.

    In the name of The Father, and of The Son, and of The Holy Spirit.

    Amen.

      Anyway,. they’ll need somewhere to live, of course, so I’m relaxing the planning laws so we can build one or two houses, equivalent to several cities the size of Leeds, for all these jolly nice people to live in.

      Tally ho!

      He’s busy blowing all our money on foreign aid and euro bailouts.

      My understand was, he was hired to reduce (a) immigration and (b) the national debt. So far, he’s added several hundred billion to the debt and immigration has gone up, and he’s due to admit another 400,000 immigrants, starting next year.

      It’s the consequence of:

      Servicing the compounded interest on our accumulated debt (grown by Labour)

      Being the benefits tourism no 1 destination in Europe (created by Labour)

      “They all do it”. “It is just a threat”. “No one really gets caught”.

      Their need is so desperate they have lost all connection with average society. Or have been “culted” into a complete detachment from society by a grooming culture.

      Suicide by risk. My life is worthless so I take the lottery. The concept behind the breakdown of all societies. When the rich are so obviously rich that there is no chance for some, then buying a ticket for a lottery is the only way. Drug smuggling is a lottery, it just needs a plane ticket.

      Bellamy is an interesting case. His whinging here is nothing new:

      http://greenfyre.wordpress.com/2008/11/08/david-bellamy-victim-but-of-who/

      He did have a rather pronounced anti-EU stance, speaking for Goldsmiths Referendum party – 1996/7.

      But he appears to have been dropped in 1994.

      He was not at that time an AGW denier. 1996 he did write an article describing AGW as ‘poppycock’

      Monbiot in the Grauniad has done fairly damaging pieces on him.

      Bit of revisionism from the BBC here, hardly surprising. Good question though is why did they drop him in 1994 ?

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
