  1. This guy is quite incredible, is he not? This arrogant prig must be made to suffer the full consequences of his own actions, simply paying the money back, that he obtained by deception, does not cut it in my book.
    This greedy, dishonest politician must go! Sooner rather than later.


  2. I think rotherhamtermite is absolutely right, however there is of course a well established precedent whereby any local politician found to have ‘inadvertently’ claimed for something he shouldn’t have, is given the option of simply re-paying the dosh and then everything is unky dory!!


  3. Thanks for the comments. I agree with all contributors, after all, how could anyone who has read the MacShane Files, conclude otherwise? With friends like Denis’s Mate, who needs enemies?


  4. Isn’t it funny that whenever an MP makes a mistake they have always over claimed and never under claimed.
    Have a look at the comments on the Daily Telegraph Website to see how despised this man really is.
    He surely must go to jail.
