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.

I can't wait to see how this fits into D Singh's world view.

Is this another 'proof' of the wickdness of the EU?

I think that Mr Kirkhope should get in contact with Carl Gardner, head of legal, for advice.

There should be three photos there:
Tom Wise, Den Dover, and Giles Chichester...

Jailed for defrauding the tax payer of £39k? So what are those MP's going to get who defrauded £100k+? Or is an apology enough from them?

Silly old you, Rebel Saint. Didn't you know that Tories, LibDems and Labourites may lie and cheat and steal whenever they please, because they have the correct opinions in politics?

Whereas Tom Wise is a UKIP member, and therefore a nasty RIGHT-WINGER. Hanging's too good for right-wingers.

Anyone noticed what gorgeous eyes Kirkhope has?
