Elliott Morley

Right, so he claimed £16,000 for a mortgage he had already paid off. It strikes me that there are two possibilities here.

The first is that he genuinely forgot, or didn't notice, that he had paid his mortgage off. Some people might be sceptical about that; I couldn't possibly comment. But let's be generous - he does claim it was accidental. If so, I can't help wonder why someone who is daft enough not to notice a fairly significant change in their personal circumstances is a Minister in Her Majesty's Government?

The second possibility is that he knew damn well that there was no mortgage but claimed it anyway. In which case he would be advised to turn himself in at the nearest police station.


  1. Errrmmm. I think I'm going with Option 2, if it's all the same to you.

    Yes, two I think it is.

    He's a filthy rotten SCUMBAG* who deserves to be in jail.

    *Gene Hunt moment...

  2. You might say that. I couldn't possibly comment!

  3. No, he only stole the money because he isn't paid enough to do his important role of - err - whatever it is. He needs a payrise not a spell in jail........
