MP's Investigating Their Own Again



If you are a District Councillor and you abuse public funds for Party Political purposes, you will be surcharged to the limit of your personal assets and made bankrupt. It appears that is exactly what Mandelson was doing with our money, spending in Labour marginals on projects that were not value for money.

If the ' New Politics' are to mean anything,Mandelson should be investigated by the Metropolitan Police, not by the public accounts committee, who and on past performances pass the harsh penalty of 'apologising' to the House.


Figures disclosed by the Treasury last night showed that ministers overruled civil servants on spending plans on at least four occasions since the start of 2010.

Advice from officials was ignored on a further nine occasions in 2009. This compares with just five occasions in the previous three years.

Three quarters of these objections were on ‘value for money’ grounds.

Lord Mandelson's spending decisions were challenged on five occasions in 2009 including a loan to a quango in the west Midlands and £10million worth of funding for sports complex in Leeds.

Other objections on value for money grounds were made to the £300million car scrappage scheme and plans for dairy farmers.

The spending decisions are now likely to be investigated by MPs on the Public Accounts Committee, which oversees Whitehall spending, when it is reconvened.

In Police parlance the CPS have charged the 'small fry' but the 'Mr Big' has not been cornered, the Lords elegantly sidestepped any charges of corruption amongst their own, Mandelson included.

For so many 'Letters of Direction' to be issued by First Division Civil Servants 2009-10 demonstrates to my mind that something akin to abuse of Public Funds was being alledged by the Civil Service.

This is not a repetition of ' falsifying mortgage applications' or getting British Passports for his Indian friends, this is the wholesale rape of the exchequer.

Do you trust a Committee of MP's to determine anything other than a slap on the wrist ?

Mandelson should be prosecuted to the full extent of the Law as would any District Councillor, 'pour encourager les autres', so they do not think they can commit any crime and be untouchable before the Law.

The first thing is needed is a formal complaint to the Metropolitan Police, something I am sadly precluded from doing for the present.

Sorry, I don't understand.
Which law is that?

Don't overrule an official?

So I assume that although local councillors are subject to surcharge and almost certain bankruptcy, honourable members (and I use the term loosely) are not. If that is the case, it's au revoir to probity and responsibility and a two-fingered salute to common decency!

about time some of you woke up......

these hoons have squandered £trillions on their bizarre 'project'..

brown lost £7 billion in a matter of seconds with his gold sale announcement.......

deliberately destroying the government funds and lumbering every person in the uk with an enormous debt must surely be treason?

we are in a situation where the debt almost probably can never be paid off...............for what?
diversty? equality? a future in debt for all?

the whole labour cabal need to be put on trial.........why are these people being protected?

will dave and nikolai have the balls?

Unfortunately its not debt for all.
The parasites that claim for doing fuck all will still claim and owe nobody nothing.

You and I will pay the bill.

"For so many 'Letters of Direction' to be issued by First Division Civil Servants 2009-10 demonstrates to my mind that something akin to abuse of Public Funds was being alledged by the Civil Service."

I am in two minds about this. The issue for me is one of secrecy. Ministers seem to spend a great deal of time sitting on their arses letting the Civil Service make all the decisions and then take credit for them. How much of Labour's atrocious rule is in fact due to the Civil Service wanting things and Ministers acquiescing we will probably never know.

Transparency is the key. A distinct lack of it has turned Parliament into a pantomime.

If a Minister disagrees with his administration why can't they be grown up about it and admit it? The role of the Minister is to represent their Ministry in Parliament. If they do not do that to the fullest extent how can the Government be properly held to account?

Might I suggest a letter to Nick Clegg, whose personal mission appears to be the cleaning up of Parliament?

S90 of the Local Government Act 2000 abolished the surcharge provisions - unfortunately!

I know Peter Mandleson is a very naughty boy who should be locked up in a deep dank dungeon and suspended from the wall with chains and leather straps whilst, I tease his giant scrotum with a lighted candle.........Oooh matron I must go and lay down for ten minutes and wind my self-winding watch up with some brisk wrist movements.
Peter has certainly got the wow factor where I am concerned...grrrr
