Tom Wise is jailed, but Timothy Kirkhope is defamed
A most curious juxtaposition. The article on the EU Politix site which recounts the sorry tale of former UKIP MEP Tom Wise, who was today jailed for defrauding the taxpayer of £39,000, actually carries a picture of leading Conservative MEP, Timothy Kirkhope. And Mr Kirkhope's picture also features prominently on the The EU Parliament main page (which will doubtless disappear overnight).
Cranmer would call Mr Kirkhope to alert him to this slander, but he has rather more important things to do. He does wonder, however, if Edward McMillan-Scott has taken up a position with Dod's Parliamentary Communications Ltd.
