two MPs to face fraud charges
as is well known and is reported here and was second item on France 2 this morning, whose report was complete with picture of bath plug, at the cheapness of which the newscaster marvelled. But of course the rules allowed MPs to get away with this kind of thing for a long time. And nothing is said about claims between 1997 and 2001 which were against all the rules, lenient as they were, such as the claims made by Mr Salter for four years, for a non-existent London property. None of the print or broadcast media will reproduce this, although journalists have said to me that they know it is true. Bloggers are not exempt from the laws of libel however, so the only reason I have not been sued must be that it is true. 40K. At least. Criminal fraud.
