£500,000 Expenses Fraudster MEP Jailed

skinner peter

Remember Peter Skinner, the Labour MEP who clocked up £500,000 on “expenses” while enjoying a lifestyle of lavish Hawaiian scuba diving holidays, expensive jewellery, and stays in top class hotels? The crook was jailed today for four years. He claimed he had simply been confused about the EU’s generous expenses rules. Brussels is rotten to the core…

Bernard Jenkin Accuses No. 10 of Cash For Questions

Bernard Jenkin has accused Downing Street of a stitch up over their Trade Union bill u-turn. Did ministers deliberately abandon the manifesto commitment to look at the way unions donate to political parties in order to secure funding from unions for the Remain cause?

“Trade Union leaders have been complaining they are unable to campaign effectively for a remain vote in the EU referendum while the Government’s trade union bill has been threatening Trade unions and their funding. The trade union bill would have implemented a Conservative manifesto commitment, and I quote, legislate to ensure trade unions use a transparent opt in process for trade union subscriptions….Yesterday the Minister’s concession was wholly unexpected and my Right Honourable friend for Grantham and Stanford announced his decision to abandon the opposition in this change to the bill…It has been confirmed to me, from two independent sources that Number Ten instructed these concessions to be made after discussions with trade union representatives…This being true would amount to the sale of government policy for cash and political favours…Mr Speaker this stinks. This reeks of the same of Cash for Questions. This shows this government really is at the rotten heart of the European Union.”

That is an explosive claim…

Treasury Can Predict Future to 2030, Can’t Work Out Cost of Brexit Report

image

George Osborne’s report on Brexit wants us to believe the Treasury can predict the future as far away as 2030, yet they can’t even tell us how much the report cost to produce. In a written question to the Chancellor Michael Fabricant asked for cost of producing the report and how many man-hours it took in total. David Gauke replied:

The Treasury is appropriately resourced to support the Government’s priorities in Europe. However, it is not practical to identify full-time equivalent staff numbers.”

They can provide a cost analysis for 14 years in the future, but not something that happened in the last few weeks!

Frank Field’s Left-Wing Case For Brexit

Labour’s Frank Field made the left-wing case for Brexit on the Daily Politics:

“many of the social rights, which are trumpeted about as European, were ones which we actually took into Europe. It’s not that in fact somehow workers in this country were bereft of rights until we joined the European Union.”

It’s what Jezza wants to say but can’t…

Free Advertising Worth £135,000-a-Week For Remain Campaign

Having handed over £9 million of taxpayers cash for a propaganda leaflet, the Whitehall machine hasn’t stopped there. At the top of every gov.uk website – including the popular DVLA and visa information micro-sites – lies a banner advert for the government’s pro-remain EU referendum site.

How much would this cost in the real world?

Guido knows a fair bit about the online ad trade, adverts like that would cost around £10 per thousand impressions. Last week, gov.uk sites received a total of 13,500,000 pageviewsThat’s the equivalent of a £135,000 per week campaign donation from the taxpayer to the Remain campaign…

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.”
