Call for Union Regulator to Investigate Unite for Fraud
Unite Officials Could Face Four Fraud Charges Over Falkirk

FRAUD

certificationThe official trade union Certification Officer – who by law regulates trade unions – is being asked to investigate Unite over allegations that the signing up of Unite union members to the Labour Party in Falkirk without their knowledge or permission is an act of fraud. The Trade Union Reform Council (TURC), which is backed by 12 MPs, alleges that there are legal grounds for making 4 criminal charges of fraud against Unite union officials.

The Certification Officer has statutory powers to direct an organisation at any time, if he thinks there is good reason to do so, to produce relevant documents to aid his investigations, this could mean the Labour Party is forced to reveal the suppressed report of its own investigation into the goings on in Falkirk. The Certification Officer is almost certain to begin an investigation which could result in all the dirty washing being revealed. Fraud is an imprisonable offence…

No Show Yeo Incriminated Himself

No Show Yeo

Tim Yeo agreed to go on Sky’s Murnaghan Show last night and backed out this morning – perhaps he feared further incriminating himself. Guido believes that on the evidence of what Tim Yeo said on film to the Sunday Times he admitted to offences under the Bribery Act 2010.  Guido will be writing to Metropolitan Police Commissioner drawing attention to the evidence. When we did the same in the Jim Devine case he was sentenced to 16 months…

Drugs, Cash and Labour Leaflets

The Jonah curse struck again yesterday as the Prime Mentalist’s photo op pal Abid Hussian was jailed for a £19 million money laundering racket. Labour MP Fabian Hamilton turned up at his trial to provide a character reference, insisting that Abid was a “moral, honest” guy and that “it was far more likely it was a bag full of leaflets” than a bag full of drug cash that he was smuggling into the country. Leaflets like these perhaps?

Probably time to stop talking…

Jailed £19 Million Money Launderer Was Doomed

Community ‘hero’ Abid Hussain has been jailed for his part in a £19 million money laundering racket, working with crime gangs in the Middle East to smuggle drug money into the UK. It all started to go wrong for Abid (second from left next to Labour MP Fabian Hamilton, who gave him a character reference in court) after a trip to Downing Street in 2010:

He was doomed.

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

Eric Joyce Explains Arrest

Eric Joyce has been in touch following his latest arrest:

“The account you have is pretty much it. Unpleasant and unhelpful Edinburgh airport baggage man (I gave him my flight and seat no, 18D, at least six times but he said he was busy and would be back shortly); a ludicrously over-reacting transport cop who’d already identified me and made it clear he’d be taking ‘no nonsense’, when I was simply asking for my ‘phone back (the Telegraph is saying i was trying to get back onto the ‘plane, for some reason).  I said I’d simply leave and one cop said; ‘best thing’ and the other said ‘not ’til I let you’.  I replied pointing out that he wasn’t letting me report my ‘phone missing nor letting me leave. At that point he arrested me with entirely un-necessary physical force.  

I’ve now seen the press reports and I’m literally astonished at the police.  I was not charged, not interviewed, did not even have statements taken, was not examined and when I was released the cops said they were taking no further action at that point. They said it was up to the Procurator Fiscal to decide if any further action was in the public interest.   Now their press folk are telling media I’ll appear in court – you obviously only appear in court if you’ve been charged. Perhaps they’d like to clarify.  Unlike me, ‘phone still in transit.”

Over to them…

WATCH: Bercow Announces Nigel Evans Office Searched

The Speaker has announced that with a Warrant from Preston Crown Court, he allowed a Member’s office to be searched.

“I wish to report to the House that the rooms of a Member were searched yesterday pursuant to a warrant issued by the Circuit Judge in Preston Crown Court on 16 May. The warrant related to the investigation of a serious arrestable offence.

I should remind Members, as did my predecessor in 2008, that the precincts of Parliament are not a haven from the law. In accordance with the Protocol issued by my predecessor on 8 December 2008 on the execution of search warrants within the precincts of the House of Commons, I considered the warrant personally and was advised by Officers of the House that there were no lawful grounds on which it would be proper to refuse its execution.

In addition, as provided for in paragraph 6 of the Protocol, I consulted the Attorney General and the Solicitor General who concurred in this advice. I am very grateful to them. The Clerk of the House was kept fully informed throughout, and also concurred.

The Serjeant at Arms and Speaker’s Counsel were present when the search was conducted. Undertakings have been given by the police officers as to the handling of any Parliamentary material until such time as any issue of privilege is resolved.

The investigation is continuing and it would not be right to comment further. I will not take questions on my statement.”

Nigel Evans was arrested and held at Preston Police Station at the beginning of the month…

Chris Bryant talks to the Times Diary about a famous gay actor:

“I don’t think I’ve had sex with him. He says we had sex in Clapham. I’m fairly certain I’ve never had sex south of the river”



Progressive Inclusion Champion says:

Great to hear Carswell call for inclusive policies and that UKIP must stand for first and second generation immigrants as much as the English.
