Another Labour Fraudster: Candidate Convicted Six Days Before Polling Day

Six days before polling day and it’s the end of the line for one candidate already. Labour have been forced to suspend their prospective MP for Wellingborough after he was convicted for fraud. Despite attempts to cover his tracks, Richard Garvie has been found guilty of buying train tickets worth almost £900 using a card for a closed bank account. His defence was that it was all a big conspiracy to stitch him up because “I have been active in helping people who have been treated wrongly by train companies”. He had the means, he had the opportunity, he had the loco-motive…

Two-Faced Chuka’s Sneaky Leaflet Con

What a lot of endorsements that nice Chuka Umunna has on his campaign literature from the good people of Streatham:

There are glowing references from Edris Thompson, a “retired healthcare worker“, who tells her fellow constituents “he cares a lot about people in our area”.

“New father” Richard McLean says “Chuka has been a hardworking local MP”.

He also has the votes of Pauline Milligan, “the director of the Streatham Food Festival”, “teacher” Helen Hutchinson and transport campaigner Dave Malley.

What none of the leaflets mention is that all of these people are members of Chuka’s local CLP.

See what they did there.

UPDATE:

Hodge the Dodge’s Tax Hypocrisy Goes Box Office

Regular readers will be well aware that Guido has been banging on about Margaret Hodge’s shameless tax hypocrisy for years.

Back in 2012, he took a look at her 0.01% tax rate-paying family company, Stemcor. At the time she insisted her £1.5 million shareholding was “tiny, tiny, tiny” and she succeeded in scaring off the dead tree press from reporting her arrangements. Hodge even threatened to sue anyone accusing her of tax avoidance. Yet no writ or letter before action came. 

Today’s Times splashes on the story:

“just under 96,000 Stemcor shares handed to Ms Hodge in 2011 came from [Liechtenstein], which is renowned for low tax rates. Three quarters of the shares in the family’s Liechtenstein trust had previously been held in Panama, which Ms Hodge described last month as “one of the most secretive jurisdictions” with “the least protection anywhere in the world against money laundering”. The veteran Labour MP was accused of sheer hypocrisy. She has repeatedly attacked big businesses and bankers who used offshore arrangements, but has not declared that she benefited from an offshore trust.”

REVEALED: Tom Baldwin Wrote Toxic Migrant Briefing

First he told a senior Lobby journalist: “I hate you. Even if I was dying, I wouldn’t want your bone marrow”.

Then he was responsible for Labour’s “weaponise the NHS” row.

And then Miliband’s Millie Dowler moment“.

Now Guido can reveal it was psycho-spinner Tom Baldwin who wrote the explosive late-night briefing accusing David Cameron over the Med crisis, at 11:23pm:

From Red Ed to Med Ed…

Ken: “If Lutfur’s Done Something Wrong, Have Him Arrested and Put Him on Trial”

In this LBC interview tonight Ken goes on to play down the seriousness of Rahman smearing Labour’s John Biggs as a racist. Worth remembering he still sits on Labour’s NEC…

A Lifelong Labour Voter Speaks

Steve, a “traditional Labour voter”, tells the Daily Politics:

“I was brought up in a household that’s staunch Labour. My dad was a trade unionist all his life and I’ve only ever known the Labour Party in voting terms. This time I’ve just got no feeling for Ed Miliband whatsoever. I don’t like the fact that he shafted his brother to get the job in the first place. I just don’t think that he’s going to become a credible Prime Minister.”

Guido hears ya, Steve…
