Elliot Morley MP - Benefit Cheat!


It's not every day that I wake up to good news, but this morning was such a day! I turned on my computer hit on Google news and there it was in all it's glory, another pig had been caught with his snout well and truly in the trough. The former Environment Minister and enthusiastic supporter of Tony Blair, my own former member of Parliament, representing my home town 'Scunthorpe' was the latest in what seems to be a long line of benefit cheats, members resident in what is known as the village of Westminster.

POLICE officers are guarding Elliot Morley's Winterton home today, after revelations about the Scunthorpe MP's expense claims.

Two Humberside Police officers are stopping anyone approaching the 10ft-high wooden gates at the end of his drive.

The house, which is in the centre of the village, is not visible from the road as it is surrounded by a high stone wall.

Mr Morley has admitted he took £16,800 of taxpayers' cash to fund a mortgage which no longer existed over a 20-month period.


Elliot Morley and myself are old adversary's, from my misunderstood, misguided day's in the Labour Party and as a community activist from way back and what seems now to be years ago. The strange thing about writing this for my blog is that last night whilst in attendance at my branch meeting (Central London Branch of the Socialist Party) we discussed this whole stinking most offensively malodorous business of MP's expenses. I intend to write more about my encounters with Elliot Morley and my time fighting hopelessly for Socialism in the Labour Party later in the meantime I've posted the following comment on the Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph's web-page.

"Whys the old bill guarding his home, he's a benefit cheat and should be locked away for his trickery and deceit!"
