It’s not just prisons where you find criminals, it is also Parliament!
Former Labour minister Denis MacShane is facing a fresh police investigation after he resigned as an MP yesterday for fiddling his expenses. Scotland Yard last night vowed to examine a report by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards which found Mr MacShane guilty of submitting 19 false claims ‘plainly intended to deceive’ Parliament’s expenses authority. But he could still dodge criminal charges because evidence submitted to Parliament is inadmissible in court.
MacShane was Labour’s pro EU Minister. Given how corrupt THAT institution is, I suppose the fact that MacShane was fiddling his expenses is no big surprise.
