  1. A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “South Yorkshire Police is investigating allegations of electoral expenses fraud in Rotherham in 2015. “The investigation remains ongoing and an application for an extension has been granted by the courts.”

    I doubt it was the Labour Party themselves who reported it ! But, didn’t Sir The Rt Hon ….. Report himself once before to his own self as chair of the standards committee.

  2. Well if UKIP did report it good on them they’re not going to report themselves are they ? wasn’t it another political party that reported McShane and he belly ached over that. Put it this way if they’ve done nothing wrong they’ve nothing to be afraid of. All politicians are the same and that is not just MP’s they don’t break the rules they’re too savvy for that they just bend them to suit themselves because that’s what they are selfers Pigs with their noses in the troughs things never change
