Labour Expenses Piggy Tries to Run Again

Expenses trougher and Labour’s former Enfield North MP Joan Ryan has some nerve. In a letter to her local Labour Party seen by Guido, Ryan begs them for her support, saying she wants to run again in 2015: “we have to select the best candidate to win for Labour in Endfield North… now I’m asking for your support to become Labour’s parliamentary candidate”. Apparently with a straight face, she insists “had it not been for the changes to parliamentary boundaries we would still have a Labour MP in Enfield North”.

Definitely nothing to do with the fact that during the expenses scandal Ryan was exposed as having claimed £4,500 for work on her second home, having to pay back over £5,000 in mortgage interest the following year. Her wikipedia page was mysteriously edited at least ten times from inside the parliamentary estate in an attempt to remove details of her expenses indiscretions. For some reason no mention of any of this in Ryan’s letter. And certainly no apology. Her local party have given her short shrift so far, the final selection meeting is tomorrow…

UPDATE: Ryan’s ex-agent Chris Deacon has come out against her plans for a return:

“I think the membership feels that for us to win we need a fresh, new candidate to take the party forward.”

    Any MP who had to repay money should be permanently barred from Parliament.

    Might leave it quite empty.

        The HOC is a degenerates meeting place, where dysfunctional parasites, liars and perverts gather and cook up ever more spiteful methods of ripping off the people, they are supposed to represent.

          Oooh, after a hard day’s troughing, I like to slip down to a massage parlour to relax, ducky.

            We massage with special chop-sticks


          • Vote Conservative for uncontrolled immigration says:

            So how did he get that cut to the forehead ? Looks like a pretty strange massage.

            Looks more like the result of a fight, the sort of man fight that might get reported to the police and which they would have to investigate ?

            Guidos comment pages used to be witty and informative. Now they are full of stupid remarks from perverts.

          Wyle Cop says:

          Once upon a time, an MP caught frequenting massage parlours would be monstered by the media and the people and then drummed out of office.

          Now, the Deputy Speaker finds it quite normal to prance and preen about caked in makeup to hide a dubious scar, having just been interviewed by the Rozzers on suspicion of ‘the other’.

          Have standards really dropped so low?

      The Tories are now in disaray, if they lurch right then the Libs will undermine them and break the coalition but if they carry on as they are then they don’t have a prayer in 2015 Whatever you may think of Ferage he has done Cameron up like a kipper. A Kipper done up by a UKIPPER, Cameron with his arrogant sneering and fruitcake jibes has now been made to look a laughing stock and whats more ANY promises he makes or laws for after 2015 will be seen for what they are simply an electioneering ploy. NO ONE BELIEVES A WORD HE UTTERS and that is his acilles heel, he has blown it big time.

        Ha Ha! stupid comment, Cameron will get in again in 2015, everybody is sick of Milliband and the rest of the ideas free zone that is Labour.Plus they will be pig sick of our nige gurning at the camera and spouting saga coach party rubbish by then !

        green ink says:

        cannot accept what you say anon… the truth is the electorate tends to vote with their pockets and the days of thinking the labour party are going to help ordinary working family are long gone. The Tories have always had to clear up the economic shitfeists the socialists create and two years is a long time. Ukip will not allign with the labour party.. nor I believe with the libdems..they are by and large dissaffected tories and given a choice of routes to power that will always be their natural inclination. Should that accomodation compel David Cameron to move on after the next election that may be a price that must be paid to secure the country’s future prosperity.

      The voters of Enfield really know how to pick them. She was succeeded by Nick (the dick) de Bois – who made the Mail for claiming £60 for a taxi ride to his constituency from Westminster – tubes and buses not good enough eh?

    The best candidate to run for “Endfield North” should know that Enfield has no D in it.

    one hopes they do select her as while he has a 1,692 majority, having to run against her would be easy as he could say legally she is not fit for office.

      Are you aware of the extent of postal voting being used as a mechanism for facilitating ballot rigging in London?


      • 20
        Will says:

        that is a massive problem and why a judge described it as a practice that would disgrace a banana republic.

        I think that’s an insult to banana republics as they are much better run than some places we have in the uk.

    I’d like to nominate this comment from the previous thread about Dennis Skinner as comment of the day:

    He’s a complete fucking bellend Labour tribalist, a fucking nasty scumbag of a kneejerk Lefty arsewipe representing a town full of fucking inbred fucking dolescum who would elect a milkchurn full of rancid gorilla sperm provided it had a red rosette stuck on it.

        Substitute blue, righty and Tory for red, lefty and Labour and it is an excellent summary of Zac ‘airmiles’ Goldsmith. Skinner deserves everything he is hit with but it is the slimy hypocrisy of Goldsmith (I’m green as long as it does not apply to me) that deserves most condemnation.

    Ed Miliblunder says:

    Equality is absolute? Utter bullcock. You cannot treat a blind person and a seeing person equally. You have to treat each person differently in order to achieve a varying degree of equality. Equality is relative to a person’s needs & circumstances.

      Point of information says:

      If equality was an absolute we would all be the same.

      We are not all the same: Evolution would not function without it.

      In fact asymmetry arguably is responsible for the the universe being the way it is.

      Ed talks absolute rubbish: Now that is proved.

      Philosophical Propaganda says:

      How then can one celebrate ‘diversity’ if equality is an ‘absolute’ ?

      Ed has just exposed the racist flaw at the heart of modern collectivist multi-culturalism.

      Get ready for the coming mean reversion.


      • 76
        Ed Miliblunder says:

        Absolute equality bullcock is typical of the Labour Party’s One dumb nation mindset. No room for diversity or difference of opinion. Uniform thinking is crucial to its survival. Propaganda guff which keeps the unions in business.

      Down Shep says:

      Looking forward to him now putting something down on his blank piece of paper, now that he has expounded his philosophy, we will all earn exactly the same wage and live in exactly the same houses. I’ll settle for £65,000 a year and all found Ed, but I doubt that, that kind of equality is what you had in mind.
