You could argue that her former maid, Loloahi Tapui, also committed a “technical breach of the rules” in overstaying her visa.  She now faces charges and a prison sentenceDoes anyone else feel that the weight of the law is falling disproportionately on Lolo?

The Blairite loyalist Baroness Morgan has been caught fiddling her overnight expenses by pretending her Wandsworth home isn’t her main home.  The Lords authorities refuse to investigate this kind of fiddle despite, or  perhaps because, it is so widespread.  She tells the Lords that her main home is in Petersfield and she swears to Companies House on corporate filings she is ordinarily resident in Wandsworth.  Give you one guess to whom she is lying…

On a lighter note, Elliot Morley, one of the few MPs predicted to face fraud charges, spends a lot of time reversing edits to his Wikipedia page, mainly trying to erase references to his claiming of our cash on false pretences.  His detractors have managed to slip past the editors a change to the pronunciation of his name:

Guido suspects he won’t be a “shameless freeloader” for much longer…
