Stella Faces Parliamentary Standards Investigation
#BiscuitGate Leads to Funding Complaint from Local Opponents 

Following Guido’s story about Stella Creasy’s £31 junk food bill on expenses, the posh Labour MP suggested that the Jammie Dodgers, chocolate fingers and Starburst sweeties were for non-partisan community volunteers in her Walthamstow constituency. It turns out St. Ella wasn’t being entirely truthful…

stella-movement-for-change

Creasy’s #7Days4Stow campaign is advertised on her party website with Labour Party branding, uses Labour Party slogans and is backed by her local Labour Party, the campaign group Movement for Change set up originally by David Miliband – which describes itself as “the home of community organising in the Labour Movement” – is at the centre of Stella’s community volunteering. As if that didn’t make it clear enough that this is a party political operation it is backed by the General Secretary of the Labour Party. After seeing Guido’s report about #Biscuitgate the chairman of the Walthamstow Conservative Association has today written to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards asking her to determine whether taxpayers’ money is being used to support community campaigning at the behest of the Labour Party:

To those who say it isn’t much money, this is just the tip of the iceberg in how political parties abuse taxpayer funding and an important principle is at stake – partisan political campaigning should be paid for out of party funds – not out of funds earmarked for the benefit of all constituents. If only Stella had just ‘fessed up at the beginning and said, “yeah, that probably isn’t a proper use of taxpayers’ money” and straight away paid the money back when it was drawn to her attention she would have avoided a full investigation from the authorities…

    You have to understand that Stella CreaSY thinks she owns the public and voluntary sectors in Walthamstow. There is hardly a cake baked, voluntary group meeting, social, church or charitable event in her constituency which she and her Labour Patry acoyltes don’t try to muscle in on in and brand with the Labour Party logo one way or another. They have taken the invasiveness of PC cultural marxism to new levels of intrusiveness.

    There was even a street meeting held by the local police a few days ago to discuss neighbours concerns about crime in Haroldstone Road area (actually, a pretty low crime area) which her flunky Councillor Clare Coghill (who is also on the parliamentary payroll as a part-time MP’s office manager) decided to publicise on her leaflets as if the Labour party were organising it (she’s up for re-election in May). Walthamstow is becoming a One Party State.

      18: It already is. The silence of the local Tories in the face of endless financial scandals indicates a secret pact not to rock the boat, probably in exchange for Labour silence in some Tory boroughs.
      No major party has an interest in clearing up local government corruption. It’s our money that keeps them afloat, suitably laundered.
      In the Olympic year, the council spent £1.5 million on public events to ‘celebrate’. These were laid on by the Coop….who sponsor Stella Creasy and many of her chums, though perhaps not for much longer. This fear may have led to risky behaviour on the Jammy Dodger front.

      The silence of the national press about the blatant corruption in local government across all parties gives them all a sense of impunity.
