Shamed MacShane Becomes Lobbyist

In Guido’s Sun column yesterday we revealed that the disgraced former MP Denis MacShane has become a lobbyist despite still under police investigation for expenses fiddles. The laptop grabber is currently hawking around his CV in which he describes himself as a self-employed consultant based in “London, Paris and Washington”, “advising Asian, US and UK based firms on government policy problems and media strategy”. For some reason the would-be lobbyist’s CV doesn’t mention why he was kicked out of Parliament and remains to this day under investigation by the Metropolitan Police.

His alleged new offices in “London, Paris and Washington” will be a big step up from his old office – the garage of his semi-detached house in Rotherham – for which over 8 years he pocketed £125,000 in office rent expenses from the taxpayer

        When did you ever challenge violent Islamism? I f you did, you kept it to yourself, which is extremely unlike any politician.

          seeing as ‘TB’ (or the evil one as some of us prefer to call him) admitted you were right on violent Islamist extremism, perhaps he could give a job as a peace envoy in, say Syria? Get all the warring factions sat round the table in your garage. What’s that you say? Table not big enough? Don’t worry we’ll have a taxpayer whip round mate.

      And all in it together.
      As I understand it The Standards and Privileges Committee report noting his failings cannot be used by the police to press charges. Politicians have long given up thinking that the parliamentary expenses provided, are supplied by the tax paying population.

      Regarding London, Paris and Washington – these are clearly typos – it should read ‘based in the Loo, the Park, and the Washroom’. (Not the garage though, that’s full of stuff for the car boot sale.)

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.”
