David Tredinnick MP - You've been Cromwelled!

Once again the “Honourable Gentleman” David Tredd in it, MP for Bosworth is in the headlines.

Once again “Cash for Questions” David makes the news for his relationship with the public purse.
As reported in the Leicester Mercury (Friday 15th Jan) the hapless MP has had to repay £775 pounds that he had claimed on his expenses.

This is the latest claim of many that he has had to repay and was for astrology software which allows the users to assess their health according to the stars and part of a history of financial irregularities including claims for “intimate relations” courses.

Recently he was found to have used his Westminster Newsletter as a party political newsletter and repay nearly £2,000

Previously he was suspended from Parliament for 20 days and had to resign as a parliamentary private secretary after it was found that he had taken a £1,000 bribe to ask questions in Parliament.

However, the outstanding part of the article is the credit given to the British National Party by the Leicester Mercury, surely a memorable first !
“Mr John Lyon, Parliamentary Standards Commissioner, received a complaint about the claim.
After investigating, he wrote to the complainant, former police officer and BNP parliamentary candidate Michael Barnbrook, saying that Mr Tredinnick had agreed to repay the money”

British National Party Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Bosworth, John Ryde, said:
“It is not generally known, but the exposures and investigations surrounding the expense claim scandals were originated by Michael Barnbrook, a former Metropolitan Police Inspector and BNP member. There is still research being carried out and many more MP’s will be reported”

“It will give me great pleasure to stand against this person who has brought disrepute to his position and to the electorate of Hinckley and Bosworth. If there were an annual award for the “Worst Backbencher of the Year” then I believe that he would certainly be a favorite. I call upon all Conservative voters in Bosworth to vote BNP and oust this tawdry failure

"I consider it most opportune to remind ourselves of the words of Oliver Cromwell, on the occasion of him dismissing the corrupt Rump Parliament with the assistance of the Army. In my opinion the words of the Lord Protector are just as valid today as they were back in 1653. History records that Cromwell said:
“It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defile by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and like Esau sell your country for a mess of potage, and like Judas betray your god for a few pieces of money; is there any single virtue now remaining amongst you? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter’d your conscious for bribes?
Is there a man amongst you that care for the good of the commonwealth? Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil’d this sacred place, and turned the lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices?
You are grown intolerably odious to the nation, you were put here by the people to get grievance redressed, are you yourself become the greatest grievance. I command ye therefore, upon the peril for your lives, to depart immediately out of this place; go, get you out!
Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! Go! Take away that shining bauble there (mace), and lock up the doors.

In the name of God, go!"
