Crick Crick’d

Michael Crick finally touched on the Labour expenses fraud on Wednesday, having previously devoted his coverage to the Tory version of the story. After a brief chase around Smith Square, Guido caught up with him for a chat. On the other parties, he promises “more in the next few days”…

EU Wants Cultural Quotas on Netflix and Amazon Prime

marcel marceau

On-demand video services like Netflix and Amazon Prime have flourished under limited regulation, offering a wealth of content to users who were previously stuck with television schedules packed full of adverts. They are consummately pro-consumer. Naturally, the EU hates them…

The EU Commission is proposing to force Netflix et al to have cultural quotas. Eurocrat Andrus Ansip described lumping the services with a 20% European film quota as creating a “level playing field”. Out with popular and entertaining blockbusters and television, in with obscure Euro-art house. Vote Brexit, save Netflix and chill…

LibDem Who Complained to Police About Tory Election Fraud Broke Spending Rules

Former LibDem MP Adrian Sanders has been at the forefront of police complaints about election spending fraud. He even wrote a template letter for concerned constituents to dob candidates in to the cops:

“The criminal offence allegations if proven are very serious indeed. They may have determined who governs our country. It strikes at the very heart of democracy. It therefore affects everyone whether or not they reside in one of the constituencies mentioned in the media. If you want to help get this matter investigated a letter along the following lines to your Chief Constable might assist…”

Oh really…

The Representation of the People’s Act 1983 states that only candidates can send Election Addresses to voters. It explicitly says that only “a candidate” can “send free of charge for postage” an election communication, and that these must be candidate-specific rather than part of the national campaign. The Royal Mail confirm “a candidate mailing that is designed to secure the election… in another electoral constituency is unacceptable“. By definition candidates’ Election Addresses are therefore local spend and must be declared as such…

Adrian Sanders has confirmed to Guido that this was his invoice for his Election Return. As you can see, the £4,900 cost was split between national and local spend, in manifest breach of the rules:

When Guido phoned up Sanders to ask for an explanation, he angrily replied:

“You’d better report me to the police then. If you think there is an error here, report me to the police.”

He then hung up. If he’d declared it correctly, he’d have been £783 over the maximum limit…

Labour Won’t Allow Conference Delegates to Self-Identify

gender

Labour are only accepting “cisgender” applications for their party conference in Liverpool in September. Attendees are being forced to revert to their anatomical birth-gender, warning “gender must match your passport”. While the party claims “this does not discriminate” against non-gender normative delegates, it means non-binaries won’t be able to self-identify with their “true” gender expression. What will Eddie Izzard do?

Quote of the Day

Cameron’s closest friend in politics Steve Hilton backs Brexit:

“A decision to leave the EU is not without risk, but I believe it is the ideal and idealistic choice for our times. Taking back power from arrogant, unaccountable, hubristic elites and putting it where it belongs. In people’s hands.”
