Labour fiddling MPs get legal aid...

You couldn’t make this up, even if you wonted too. But I’ve just learnt that the three Labour MPs accused of fiddling their parliamentary expenses have been awarded publicly-funded legal aid to pay for their defence in their upcoming court cases.

Elliot Morley, David Chaytor and Jim Devine all face criminal charges of false accounting over claims they made for mortgage payments, rent and other services.

They deny the accusations.
Media reports said the trio's legal costs could cost as much as 3 million pounds.

The only thing I’ll say; is this won’t bode well for New Labour in Scunthorpe where Morley held the seat, and I can see the Tory taking it come the election!

If I had a button I could press that would bring this whle stinking edifice down then I would with no hesitation. The Labour Party seems to be on some sort of suicide mission. I bet Cameron can't believe his luck. I just feel sick, sick, sick.

Hi Chris,

The ramifications are that in Humberside covering Scunthorpe the BNP win a seat in the Euro Parliament, a large vote form the very village that Morley has his mansion house.

So in the words of Tony: "That's it the End."

So you reckon that Morley's latest publically funded wheeze could lead to another BNP snout in the Eurotrough? Not good.
