There's at least one under investigation by police too, for rape...

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

My bad - I thought they were are all Conservative MPs, but Bridgen was kicked out for his anti-vax conspiracy theories, then he defected to Laurence Fox’s Reclaim Party.

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

It's not just 7 Conservative MPs who are being investigated. A Conservative peer is too!
Quote:
Baroness Michelle Mone has admitted she stands to gain from profits of about £60mn from selling protective equipment to the UK government during the Covid-19 pandemic, having previously denied any role in the deal.

Mone, made a Conservative peer by Lord David Cameron in 2015, also confirmed on Sunday that she lied to the press to cover up her involvement, but said: “I wasn’t trying to pull the wool over anyone’s eyes.”

Mone and husband Doug Barrowman said that the government was told of the Tory peer’s ties to a medical equipment company that won more than £200mn in state contracts during the pandemic.

But over several years spokespeople and lawyers for Mone, a lingerie entrepreneur, denied she had any involvement with PPE Medpro, as did people representing Barrowman.

Barrowman said PPE Medpro had agreed two contracts with the government worth £202mn, making a 30 per cent profit of about £60mn, which he called “a good return”.

The UK government launched legal proceedings against PPE Medpro in December 2022, claiming breach of contract over the quality of £122mn worth of protective gowns provided by the company. PPE Medpro has denied that the goods were faulty.

Wes Streeting, shadow health secretary, said of Mone: “I must say I don’t know who thought it was a good idea for her to do that interview, but I don’t think anyone watching will be shedding any tears.”

While avoiding comment on the PPE Medpro case, he added: “Our message to those people who sought to use the pandemic to get rich quick: we want our money back.

“A Labour government will appoint a Covid corruption minister, giving them the powers they need to claw back as much of that money as possible. Because £8bn was lost through fraud, £15bn in unusable PPE.”

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

The police ought to do one of their stings where they lure criminals to a function under the pretence of receiving some kind of reward. In this instance they could just wait until there is a big parliamentary vote requiring full attendance and arrest the whole lot of them.

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

Rishi Sunak faces by-election after Peter Bone recall petition

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/6...25d3e9e17f9a31

Quote:
Rishi Sunak is facing another potentially painful by-election after voters in Peter Bone’s constituency of Wellingborough voted in a recall petition for the MP to lose his seat.

The process was triggered when Bone, an independent who lost the Conservative whip this year, was suspended from the Commons.

He was found by parliament’s independent expert panel in October to have subjected a member of his staff to bullying and sexual misconduct, but he denies any wrongdoing. Bone was suspended for six weeks, far above the ten-day threshold that automatically triggers a recall petition.

He has since returned to parliament, and was present for the crunch vote on Sunak’s Rwanda legislation.

As more than 10 per cent of the constituency’s voters signed the petition — 7,904 people, or 13.2 per cent — a by-election is now triggered.

Bone, a former deputy leader of the Commons, will formally lose his role as an MP but is free to stand in the upcoming by-election, for which the government is yet to set a date.

As the World turns…

Andrew Bridgen has just resigned from the Reclaim Party…

Quote:
"This morning, I have made the incredibly difficult decision to resign from the Reclaim Party.

I would first of all like to thank Laurence and all of the team at Reclaim who have been excellent and supported me wholeheartedly for the last 9 months.

I have come to this decision purely because of a difference in the direction of the Party, I will still wholeheartedly support the policies and values of the Reclaim Party and wish them all of the best in their future endeavours

Reform UK to challenge Tories in every seat at general election

Nigel Farage’s fringe party pledges threatens to split the vote in election battlegrounds — and boost the chances of a Starmer victory

The leader of Reform UK has privately given his senior team “cast-iron guarantees” that general election candidates will not be told to step aside for Tory opponents in a move that could split Rishi Sunak’s vote in key seats.

Richard Tice has offered written assurances to key party figures that they will fight the Conservatives right up to polling day.Reform has already selected candidates for 440 seats and intends to stand in all constituencies bar those in Northern Ireland.

Breaking: Jeremy Hunt announces March 6 Spring Budget

Quote:
The fiscal event is seen by Downing Street as a crucial milestone in the run-up to a general election expected next year, with tax cuts widely expected.

Hunt has also commissioned the Office for Budget Responsibility, the fiscal watchdog, to prepare an economic and fiscal forecast to be published alongside the Budget.
https://www.ft.com/content/0bcc6966-...b-2718ea84e2a2
Quote:
Rishi Sunak has been accused of a "desperate" briefing on inheritance tax (IHT) after reports suggested it would be slashed ahead of the next election.

It comes as the government confirmed the date of the next spring budget, which will be delivered on 6 March.

On Wednesday, The Daily Telegraph reported that Downing Street is considering axing IHT as part of a "gear change" on tax, having made halving inflation rather than reducing the tax burden a priority of his premiership.

However, Labour rubbished the story as a "desperate briefing from a desperate prime minister who is spending his Christmas break trying to keep Tory MPs on side".

TBH, if he thinks reducing inheritance tax is going to win him support I think hes dreaming, its really of little importance to the majority.

Leftie interpretation. Sunak wants to bring out the Tory voters.
Those idiots should have abolished IHT 4 years ago. It's a bad tax, mismanaged by an incompetent government.
