A Tory MP who has fought against slashing the maximum bet on high stakes gambling machines received thousands of pounds of tickets from bookies in the past year.
Philip Davies got tickets to top horse racing meetings, such as the Cheltenham Festival, from the likes of Tory donor Ladbrokes.
Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey, who reportedly led a Cabinet revolt against cutting maximum stakes on the betting machines, got a free ticket for Cheltenham with Mr Davies, but had not declared it on her entry on the register of interests.
Esther McVey once claimed that all DWP processes were quality assured (before we proved she lied). This article shows what fools she thinks the Work and Pensions committee are. Can you imagine a DWP procedure to sever benefits on the basis that the claimant has a degree actually being quality assured?
The Work and Pensions Secretary claimed a quarter of Scots who receive universal credit did not get their payments on time. She was also rebuked by House of Commons Speaker John Bercow for telling lies about Labour. He slapped her down and called her an “absolute disgrace”. It seems she just can’t help herself.
Esther McVey retains her Tatton MP seat after her April 2017 return but it remains to be seen whether she’ll be given back her DWP Minister position.
McVey was previously voted out of her seat in 2015 when the good people of Wirral West woke up to her dodgy antics.
In Tatton 28,764 people were mad enough to vote her in during the June 2017 election with a majority of 14,787.
