Four Politicians from United Kingdom faced charges

November 5, 2016 by · 5 Comments 

In the recent news from BBC, MPs Elliot Morley, Jim Devine, David Chaytor and Lord Hanningfield will be charged under the Theft Act. Director of Public Prosecutions Keir Starmer said that 3 Labour MPs and one Tory peer will face criminal charges over their expenses.

All of them have said they denied any charges and would defend their positions robustly. Revelations about MPs’ expenses emerged in May last year with the police going on to investigate a handful of cases.

Mr Starmer said there was “insufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of a conviction” in the case of Labour peer Lord Clarke but said a sixth case remains under police investigation.

Former minister Elliot Morley, MP for Scunthorpe, will face two charges in relation to a total of £30,000 of mortgage interest claims on a property in Winterton, Lincolnshire between 2004 and 2007.

Paul White – the Conservative peer Lord Hanningfield – is accused of “dishonestly” submitting claims “for expenses to which he knew he was not entitled” – including overnight stays in London.

He denies the charges and says he will defend himself against them adding: “All the claims I have ever made were made in good faith. I have never claimed more in expenses than I have spent in the course of my duties.”

More news about these will be posted on our next update. So stay tuned!

    Thanks for bloging about this. Robert Edwards is really such an important figure in Medicine, and what he did revolutionized and changed the way we looked at science. Something else that you might find interesting in return is this video I saw on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNFuqwOKc2.

    Virgin Space Ship opens a new perspective for 5 D Swim

    Scenario B: 5D Swim – VSS

    Objective: Send a swimmer to the space to swim no stop: space , biosphere, Channel swim, Sahara -ice area.

    Virgin, this spatial ship succeeded to be conducted by pilot after dissociation from its mother module in the altitude 13km700 from earth , this success will open to the 5D Swim a new perspective

    As I call this scenario B : 5D Swim- VSS ( The scenario A : 5D swim -Challenger), I will take the following steps:

    1: With virgin, it’s possible to have a tourist swimmer as passenger . Negotiate with Virgin Galactic Company about the price.

    2 : The passenger swimmer concerned could swim around the earth for a time nearly virgin . Negotiate with Virgin Galactic company about the technical details and financial impact. the information already: 200.000 Dollars by passenger, 330 passengers are reserved already for the next travel in next 18 months .Virgin can carry only 6 passengers in one rotation to the space.

    3 : Virgin could facilitate to the swimmer the passage to swim in free fall in the air .Negotiate with Virgin Galactic company about the technical details and the financial impact.

    4 : By the way ,Virgin could aim that the swimmer ejection and free fall will be oriented toward Dan Planetary Channel swimming Relay Base . Negotiate with Virgin Galactic Company about the technical detail and financial impact.

    5- After prospecting with Virgin Galactic Company 1,2,3,4 . i see if Virgin with range reaching max 3.5 Mach speed will not cause limitation factors .If yes! Negotiate with Virgin Galactic company Virgin as a space ship escorts “no stop” the swimmer from space , entrance in Biosphere and guidance toward Dan planetary Channel swimming base, then just after landing, the swimmer will be escorted directly by sea- boat to continue his swim to Cap Gris Nez.

    6- See with Virgin the general cost estimation of this 5D Swim operation . Negotiate with Virgin Galactic Company if it would possible to be the main sponsor of the first 5D swim as a promotional space action to show how is our Universe is so connected by swim.
