Two More Labour Selections Reported to Met Police

len-fix-it

Tory MP Bob Neill has written to Met Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe asking him to investigate Unite’s behaviour in Labour selections in Ilford North and Lewisham Deptford. He alleges:

“there may have been fraudulent behaviour – a breach of Subsection 1, Section 2, of the Fraud Act 2006 under the terms of ‘false misrepresentation’, defined in the act as someone who ‘(a) dishonestly makes a false representation, and (b) intends, by making the representation, to gain for himself or another or causes loss to another/exposes another to a risk of loss’.

Furthermore, I believe that this may also constitute fraud by abuse of position, breaching Section 4 of the Fraud Act 2006, which states, ‘A person is in breach of this section if he: (a) occupies a position in which he is expected to safeguard, or not to act against, the financial interests of another person, (b) dishonestly abuses that position, and (c) intends, by means of the abuse of that position…to make a gain for himself or another’”

The allegations centre around Unite offering members free Labour Party membership in exchange for meeting Len McCluskey and Labour activist Mandy Richards claiming that Unite are “bankrolling” a number of “orchestrated” campaigns.

It is increasingly looking like Falkirk was not a one-off…
