Theresa May claims there’s no connection between the Tories being in power since 2010 and NURSES having to use foodbanks!
Would you vote for criminals?
Criminal charges against a raft of Conservative MPs and their agents, are being considered by the Crown Prosecution Service over election expenses at the last general election, Channel 4 News can reveal.
As for the general election itself it seems the Tories want you to ignore this (along with many other things) and concentrate on Brexit.
We could instead vote for those who are not only perfectly capable of Brexit negotiations but actively prevent further DWP related deaths and comply with the United Nations demands for treating disabled people properly. Our NHS is in a mess and it has been made worse by the Tories who have put their own financial interests first.
As for those who don’t want to vote for anyone – look how well that turned out…
‘Election Expenses Exposed’ is a series of in-depth investigations by Channel 4 News revealing serious allegations that go to the very heart of democracy in Britain.
“Now our revelations have led to more than a dozen police investigations, and what is understood to be the largest ever investigation by the Electoral Commission. Here’s how the story unfolded.”
The clock is ticking on #electionexpenses. The deadlines for police action start to expire around two years after the 2015 General Election.
Charts showing overspend by each MP
Since 2009 when MPs’ expenses where spent on things like duck houses MPs are still splurging more than ever!
A new watchdog called the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) now has control over MPs’ pay and expenses. However we have had dealings with this IPSA and they have given us no impression whatsoever that they take their job seriously. In fact when we reported three cases to them in 2011 instead of investigating the reports they took no action at all – yet we as taxpayers fund them!
