    …and still we will charge people for the privilege of visiting empty shops..?
    Perhaps it could be turned into a museum, with pretend shoppers…
    But at least the council gets revenue for visiting your sick
    relatives – oh, wait, they are starting to move out of town too…

    I posted this comment on a previous post…
    It could be alleged that mis use of public money must be one of the Rotherham Labour Mps work ethics, lets not forget about the ex Rotherham MP Denis MacShane who resigned as a the Labour MP, after a parliamentary enquiry found that his conduct was the “gravest case” of wrongdoing ever to have been investigated.

    But yet 2 of the current MPs can destroy a local man’s life and seek re-election by not declaring extra expenses on staff because they were scared they wouldn’t get back in after the Rotherham CSE scandal. Lets see if they have learned their lesson and this time run a campaign without attempting to flaunt election law all allegation at this stage of course but they must be some truth in the allegations to have the police appeal for more time.

    Knowing that people will be looking into their expenses with a microscope I am sure they will be very careful this time round, we will also see if money does win elections just like the 30 Conservative MPs accused of breaking election spending rules alao at the last general election.

    Tim I believe it was the ex Rotherfed guy
    Mr Gore
    But not too sure maybe some one will know more about him

  7. Timawells says:

    If M.P’s are still under investigation for expenses fraud, how come they are allowed to stand at the next election? I think this is one of the reasons May called this election, because she could lose her majority, due to Conservatives under investigation. She is also hoping that UKIP are at a low level and won’t influence her after another election.

  8. Jaguar says:

    Remover Tim they are no morals Labour candidates
    They endorsed their Labour Councillors who knew of CSE and kept quiet about it after the 2005 seminar
    And then promoted them
    So their is no low they will not go to
    Sueing opposition who dare to question them
    Disgraceful but they still keep voting for them

  9. Jaguar says:

    Typo
    Should read Remember
