Former MP Jailed For Fiddling Expenses

Disgraced former Labour MP Eric Illsley has been jailed for 12 months for fiddling his parliamentary expenses.

The 55-year-old became the first sitting Member of Parliament convicted of abusing expenses.

He pleaded guilty last month to dishonestly claiming more than £14,000 of taxpayers' money.

He faced massive pressure to stand down as the MP for Barnsley Central after his conviction but did not quit until this week.

After Mr Justice Saunders told the dock officer to "send him down", he bent down to pick up his overcoat and brown leather holdall and slowly turned around.

The disgraced former MP made the short walk to the door of the dock in Court 1, which leads down to the cells, and waved over his shoulder to a friend in the public gallery.

Passing sentence, Mr Justice Saunders noted that Illsley received on average £100 a month more than he was entitled to in expenses over a three-year period.

The former MP admitted to probation officers that he did not need the extra money and attributed his actions to greed.


He made the fraudulent claims for council tax, telephone usage, service charges and maintenance, and insurance and repairs at his second home in Kennington, London.

The upper class in gov are systematically taking apart the welfare state bit by bit with it the working class culture. The credit crunch/global warming all tactics to confuse while they carry out there nefarious agenda. The trades union are well aware of it and are holding token marches, the truth is the leaders of the union are upper class scum and they are well looked after in real terms they are doing nothing, except lead he members up a blind ally. The head of the unite union was in Poland recruiting workers into his union knowing full well they would be taking jobs of British workers How underhanded and two faced is that. Once we loose the welfare state. Then no one gets rent paid. No one gets benefits. No one gets medical care unless you can pay. Like in other countries you pay try charity or die. No pensions. No jobs. Only the BNP will stop this.
What have the axis of evil done for Britain in 60 years?? What have they invested in manufacturing? Soon hospitals that they have used taxpayer’s money to modernise will be sold off and become private, that’s why they call you a customer.
Tax tax tax . With most being given away in foreign aid. The upper class scum has robbed us yet people still vote for them WHY?
You can never rise above a certain level ever wonder why? Its to keep you in your place.
They took us into the E/U so they could make more money denying us a referendum because they new we would reject it.
They have flooded our land with foreigners without consulting us because they see it as there land not ours.
They have invested in India. China. etc; to make money for them nothing for Britain and the working class.
They have taken away on purpose our jobs. Clothing. Docks. Fishing. Mines. These things built our nation using child labour now gone with the sole intention of destroying the working class and its power. It is simply they and we.
Saudi Arabia one of the richest nations in the world. Gives nothing to its lower caste. They starve live in 1890 style poverty and get no access to medical care unless it’s charity, so much for your fellow man. The same can be said for many nations in the world. Britain was the envy of everyone. Within 15year’s we will be the same as India. Pakistan GOD HELP OUR CHILDREN. Grandchildren..
The new world order will be one of billionaires and dire poverty, where do you and your family fit in this.
Time to ask why you vote for them? What have they done for you?
They have taken us from the richest nation on the planet by sheer incompetence or on purpose to a third world state; I believe it’s on purpose.
The local councils have to save money, are any taking a wage cut out of the millions they are pocketing. No why not /every one else is. Are the politicians taking a cut of any kind I mean a real cut NO why not, I thought we where in this together they are really taking the pi**? Out of the working class.
These people are ripping us off why vote for them?
Time to look after our children’s future. Have the guts stand up and be counted while we still have a chance. VOTE BNP before it’s to late
