Vaz Investigation Vanishes As Anonymity For MPs Comes In

This was what the “current inquiries” section of the parliamentary standards commissioner’s website looked like this morning, with Keith Vaz and Robert Courts listed as under investigation:

After the new rules giving anonymity to MPs under investigation came in this afternoon, the “current inquiries” section of the website vanished. Vaz and Courts’ names are gone. If they had been placed under investigation now, their constituents would never know. Well, until Guido finds out…

Possibly the Stupidest Urgent Question Bercow’s Ever Granted

The Speaker has allowed one UQ from Keith Vaz MP as below:

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the reports of an imminent Saudi/UAE- led coalition attack on Hudaydah port, Yemen and the humanitarian impact.

Of the 7 Urgent Questions tabled today only his mate Vaz’s got granted – inserted just before the Prime Minister addresses the House on the G7 meeting. Ridiculous to ask the Government to comment on a speculated foreign military attack on a third country. What exactly does Bercow expect Alastair Burt to say?

Now Vaz Reports Bridgen to Standards Commissioner (Again)

Keith Vaz has reported Tory MP Andrew Bridgen to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards – again. Bridgen first complained to the Commissioner about Vaz’s conduct in September 2016 after the Labour grandee was the subject of an infamous newspaper expose. The Commissioner opened an inquiry which was suspended for months due to ‘health reasons’. Almost two years after the coke and rent boys shenanigans, Vaz is in the House the Commissioner’s probe is back on

At the time Vaz retaliated, complaining about Bridgen to the same watchdog, arguing that any investigation into his conduct was outside the Commissioner’s scope. The Commissioner rejected Vaz’s complaint…

Now Vaz has complained yet again, this time on the grounds that Bridgen has commented on Vaz’s case to the media. Bridgen tells Guido:

“Mr Vaz is clearly somewhat rattled.”

How long will it take the Commissioner to dismiss this one…

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…
