Such as Den Dover, Stuart Agnew MEP, David Bannerman MEP, Malcolm Pearson etc.!
As did Tom Wise UKIP MEP, Ashley Mote MEP and others!
Minded that various politicians have gone to prison when proven to have abused their position to enrich themselves for sums of around £20,000 and upwards.
Should ALL who hold political office and trust over the public purse face prison?
Let me make myself VERY clear and state that I believe they should.
Ashley Mote went to prison as an MEP for an offence long before he was a politician.
Tom Wise UKIP MEP was sent to prison for 2 years and let out in 5 months!! (would a burglar, mugger or rapist have only served 1/4 of their sentence or is this political privilege!!!)
It is a matter of record that Nigel Farage MEP has hugely benefitted from scams built into the EU system and has trousered £Millions as a result.
Malcolm Lord Pearson of Rannock has been shown to be laundering money through his company Global Britain.
What might be the thoughts of Brian Denny, Mark Seddon, Marc Glendenning, Bob Crow and others that their apparent patron in their new EU Referendum wheeze is Lord Pearson with his record of outright dishonesty and Islamaphobia as a Zionist?
Now we have Den Dover who has this week been ordered to repay some £345,000 he ‘misappropriated from The Tax Payers via his position as an MEP – where he dishonestly claimed expenses he was not entitled to – including:
· £101,068 for three cars
· £15,404 for office supplies and equipment,
· £89,235 for postage and stationery
· £100,735 for the costs of rent and renovation of Den Dover’s ‘office’ which happened to be in his private home
· £20,767 for telephone costs (MEPs get a separate allowance for all these office expenses, none of which are supposed to be paid from the staff budget)
· £17,880 for ‘entertainment’
· £200 in donations to the Conservative Party
There is also the matter of some £167,000 vat he had avoided paying.
On this basis even when the money is repaid – as it was bar the stolen money Farage received, by Tom Wise – can we expect Den Dover to be encacerated?
Since Tom Wise got 2 years for stealing about £30K would this mean Den Dover would face 20 years for 10 times the size of theft – Perhaps the term could be spent in a Greek jail as then they could bill the EU for his care to reduce their debt!
Then he could face Britain’s vat authorities in 20 years for that theft.
I get the impression that the only way to get Giles Chichester MEP to honourably settle his moral liabilities would be for him to provide diaries for all of us until his demise – I understand we have probably paid for them already!
One wonders at what stage in politics might the Police step in to enforce honesty and integrity on liars, scoundrels and low lifes who use untrue defamation and distortion as political weapon in persuit of their personal salaries, incomes and agrandisement – think how much more electable UKIP would be and howmuch more credible if liars like Skeptyk, John Ison, Stuart Parr, Douglas Denny, Mick McGough, Mark Croucher, Marta Andreasen MEP and many more in UKIP’s befouled leadership (or blatant lack of!) and the like were facing incarceration for their serial dishonesty.
