Judge Refuses Fiona Onasanya’s Appeal Against Her Conviction

Convicted Peterborough MP Fiona Onasanya has had her appeal against her conviction refused at the Court of Appeal this morning. Qualified solicitor Onasanya took the decision to defend herself and failed to bring any papers along. Brave…

Attorney General Geoffrey Cox’s office has concluded that the three months Fiona Onasanya was sentenced to for lying about speeding was not an unduly lenient sentence, after a review and “careful consideration”. A spokesperson for the office said that “The threshold [to refer the case to the Court of Appeal] is a high one, and the test was not met in this case.”

Meanwhile, Onasanya has earned almost £6,000 of her generous MPs salary for the few weeks she has been behind bars, not working. By the time she gets out in April, she will have received £20,000…

That’s before you consider her Parliamentary staffing allowance for the three months of up to £37,725, not to mention the cost of her living at Her Majesty’s pleasure which could be around another £17,000. All the while the people of Peterborough don’t have an MP. She should do the honourable thing and resign now rather than waiting for her constituents to force her out…
