GuyNews Special: Walthamstow’s #BiscuitGate Outrage

Expenses are back in the news, so the Guy News special rapporteur decided to travel to sunny Walthamstow to ask Stella Creasy’s constituents what they thought about their MP’s #BiscuitGate troughing. A complaint was sent to the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner after St. Ella claimed £30.98 on expenses for Jammie Dodgers, chocolate fingers, kettle chips, sensations, Viennese biscuits, onion rings and Starburst sweeties for Labour Party volunteers.

The people of Walthamstow have spoken…

    You went all the way to Walthamstow and didn’t report on the world class levels of waste, mismanagement and corruption at the local council? Guido, you really have to give your reporter a kick up the backside. The very least he could have does is asked to see the last election expenses records which the council hid in the basement of the town hall and then refused to produce on the ground the basement was full of asbestos.

    Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith was part of a high-level p*edophile ring operating at Westminster in the 1970s, a Labour MP has claimed. Simon Danzcuk alleges in a new book Sir Cyril used his influence to escape prosecution for sexually abusing boys. He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme the MP was part of an “informal” network of sex abusers. And he claimed police were pressured by the authorities to drop investigations into his activities.

    “Had he been prosecuted, then the house of cards would have fallen, in terms of that p*edophile network, and it could have brought the government down,” the Labour MP told Today. He also claimed child abuse allegations against Sir Cyril were widely known at the time and were even raised in public, at a Liberal party conference.

    Sir Cyril’s family have said they are “saddened” by Mr Danzcuk’s allegations “made so long after Sir Cyril Smith’s death and at a time he is no longer able to defend himself”.

    Sorry to interrupt, GF, but having just got back from foreign parts, I spotted this denial from one of Andy Burnham’s advisers which takes the biscuit. They are claiming that the figures for the numbers of deaths at Burnham’s Stafford Death Camp were ‘made up’.

    A number of hard left activists have been claiming this for years. Saying that there was not even ONE death at Stafford due to poor care. But try telling that the friends and relatives that really suffered at that hole.

    So more denial from Labour. It was said that it was Miller’s aid who inadvertently did for her over her expenses – I hope it is the same for Burnham.

    I can find no, condemnation of Scally’s comments from the slimy Burnham. He needs to be challenged and sack his aide / policy adviser, now.

    Needless to say, the BBC won’t be interested. They completed buried the Jarman report in September, on the appalling state of the NHS under Labour, although every other broadcaster and news organisation gave it prime billing.

    Burnham and Labour are lower than vermin, to paraphrase an earlier NHS champion.
