Taxi & Early Doors for David Laws MP?
By Julian Bray Coalition Duckhouse UK Blog
They STILL don’t get it! Regular followers will notice that I’m returning the word ‘Duckhouse’ to the title as the astonishing breaking news of around £40,000 of taxpayers money fraudulently being used by one of the Lib Dems rising front bench stars, the Coalition Treasury Chief Mr David Laws MP to put a clandestine roof over the head, scented candles by the bed, paying rent to his closet gay spin doctor lover who owned the various rooms. The gay long term lover James Lundie, is a high ranking director with the American owned Edelman firm of agressive spin doctors, a fact that seems to have escaped most of the media and how does that bode for the proposed register of rogerists (eh? Ed) sorry lobbyists?
Really you just could not make this up, Mr David Laws Chief Secretary to the Treasury, says that his relationship with his male lover was as it were strictly under wraps, none of his (or the lovers family knew) of the love tryst (as the red tops will have it). Certainly the discredited Commons MP’s expenses system would have raised an eyebrow if Mr Laws had correctly declared what the taxpayer funded expenses were being used for. It's no use the pink and pinkish media claiming that I'm flaming gays, I'm not. Secretary to the Treasury David Laws MP can do what he likes and with whom he likes but not with my (ie the taxpayers) money and not playing fast and loose with my public office! Laws says that it was a cheaper option, well so what? Keep it within the rules, we'll happily pay the extra, just as hard pressed benefit and disability claimants have to do.
It’s no use saying that “it’s in the rules” as clearly this particular issue is not. The Prime Minister, David Cameron and more importantly his deputy Nick Clegg must declare “Early doors for David Laws” and return Mr Laws to the back benches, within the week, failure to do so will seriously weaken the serious intent of this coalition government and let back in a shambles of a Labour banana waving Miliband administration.
If Prime Minister David Cameron is not convinced, just remember that I once called the Ugandan President and King of Scotland Idi Amin Dada "Crazy" at a diplomatic reception in London, and the conservative Government of the day still gave Amin £17 million to buy ARMS!
I made a film about it and the vist of the Uganda Defence Minister (A K J Oboth Ofumbi) later to be found murdered just outside Kampala, Uganda. David is more than welcome to contact me and I'll happily explain the options open to him. The other David can also call me so I can explain why ligging it with £40,000 of taxpayers funds might not be a good personal or public relations move.
I am personally at a loss to understand why Mr Laws simply didn’t ‘fess up a lot earlier, rather than waiting for the Daily Telegraph to not only raise the whole issue of MP’s expenses but also to effectively out Mr Laws.
It has been long known by Fleet Street that our Dave 'bats for the other side' but no one realised that included an ever open cashpoint. Its not that Laws or Lundie are short of cash either, both have substantial cash resources. Mind you when Edelman in the USA catch up with the story, circumstances for Mr Lundie might rapidly change. Spin doctors like to get clients on the front page rather than their own firms and senior directors caught with corporate trousers down.
I’m sorry but ANYONE seeking and securing a public appointment effectively loses the right to a private life IF it involves bending the law, bending over, or cynically raiding the public purse.
Mr Laws has belatedly said “he will pay every penny back” well sadly that isn’t good enough. He should pay back the £40,000 (and with interest too) and possibly face a criminal sanction, as he must have repeatedly lied 'told porkies' to carry on the bogus claim. The payback will however be taken into consideration - by the Judge!
It’s ironic that ex-MP Eric Morley and a few motley others are as this story unfolds up before the Crown Court and if found guilty face some time locked up in the “Big House”, ironically as guests of Her Majesty.
It should be remembered by Mr David Laws MP that hundreds of thousands of benefit claimants have over the years also faced the courts, been handed down life changing criminal convictions, terms in prison AND ordered to repay legal costs as well as the fraudulent benefit claims.
Mr Laws is at the very heart of the squeaky clean coalition Government, so a resignation at least is called for. At the same all other MP’s should again be asked to voluntarily record and declare under oath and in writing, they have no MP’s miscalculated or misallocated expenses to declare. Some of the new intake look really shifty as well, so the whips might like to take special care of them.
Coming just a few days after Fergie (the foot sucking ex Royal not the footy managerial legend …well not yet anyway) was stung by the News of the World (no TV apology in the UK, but a pre recorded 10 minute Oprah Winfrey) in an elaborate set up.
David Cameron must swiftly cut out the remaining MP’s expenses cancer now, as clearly the new intake at the Westminster Village still don’t get it! As for the Coalition UK blog, the term 'Duckhouse' prematurely retired has returned to our masthead and all too soon.
