NCA Taking Vaz Allegations Very Seriously

The National Crime Agency says it has not ruled out launching a probe after it received allegations about disgraced Keith Vaz’s property empire. Following a complaint from Tory MP Andrew Bridgen, Britain’s FBI did not rule out looking into the situation and said it takes such matters seriously. The agency told Bridgen:

“I am sorry to have taken so long to reply and want to reassure you that the NCA takes all such allegations very seriously. I do, however, hope that you will understand that I can make no comment about what operational activity, if any, the NCA may take in response to the allegations against Mr Vaz.”

Mr Vaz denies the claims. Trouble may be ahead in Leicester East…

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
