Get The Trougher Out – Another Campaign Starts

While Parliament dithers seemingly unwilling, or unable to put it’s house in order people power is starting to surface and express it’s disgust with troughing MP’s. The campaign in Redditch to get Jacqui Smith out has over 10,000 signatures, Smith will be defending a majority of 2,300 so as such will more than likely be a casualty at the General Election

Margaret Moran not wanted

Margaret Moran Labour MP for Luton South suffered national embarrassment when the expenses scandal broke in May. The Telegraph revealed she tried to make taxpayers pay for £22,500 of dry rot treatment to her second home in Southampton – 100 miles from her constituency.

Since the expenses scandal broke in May Moran has followed the example of her leader, found a bunker and dropped out of sight. This has not gone down well in Luton where the local paper has started a campaign to get Moran dismissed by Gordon Brown and an immediate by election called.

In response to the campaign Moran issued a statement earlier today:

“I am sorry that, due to ill health, I have not been able to carry out my parliamentary and constituency duties to the extent I would wish, and accordingly apologise to my constituents in Luton South.”
“I am very grateful to the people of Luton South for electing me three times and I will be returning to Westminster to represent you as soon as the doctors allow me to.”

The Luton and Dunstable Express aren’t pulling any punches with their campaign:

We are fed up with people in Luton South being represented by an MP who thinks it is OK to spend thousands of pounds worth of taxpayers’ money on decorating and furnishings.

We are fed up with an MP who cares more about dry rot than Luton.

We are fed up with seeing residents left without a proper voice.

And most of all we are fed up with Margaret Moran.

Moran’s behaviour with expenses was described as “unacceptable” by the Prime Mentalist who has yet to do anything about Moran

  1. MP’s who fraudulently claimed for expenses should be sacked right now, with no golden handshakes, peerages or knighoods on the taxpayer.
