And another one

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/0...course-justice/

A Labour whip and ally of Jeremy Corbyn has been charged with perverting the course of justice after allegations that she tried to give away speeding points a month after her election.

Fiona Onasanya, the Labour MP for Peterborough, appeared at Westminster magistrates court two weeks ago alongside her brother, Festus.

The former solicitor kept news of her arrest and charge secret while serving as a Labour whip. She is due back in court next month.

Solicitors and MP's seem to have issues with speeding tickets, this one is both !!!

I guess the prospect of losing two lucrative carreers is sinking in...

But just like a coin has two sides, so does a story, and this is my time now to share with you, without media spin, what my side of the story is

But she never gave any account or explanation of her innocence in the video. If she can't articulate her innocence in her video about her innocence there's no hope. It seemed little more than a cynical, grovelling plea to keep her publicly funded income.

I expect she'll be getting an alternative publicly funded income real soon - Job Seekers Allowance!

Would she qualify while wearing that ankle bracelet?

I seem to remember an old saying that prison is full of innocent people.

She has had two (three if you include an appeal) to put her side forward.

Hopefully she is practicing for her new career.... "Do you want fries with that?"

Too late to stop her sticking two more fingers up to her constituents.
I note she voted for the block on no deal, despite Peterborough returning a 60.9% vote in favour of Brexit.

Depends if you favour the 60.9%, the 39.1% or the democratic idea that says that she should represent the majority view of her constituents even if she disagrees.

Do we know if those people voted for a no deal brexit, or voted leave in the anticipation of leaving with a trade deal in place (which the leave campaign told us would be easy, and actually was just they won’t vote for it)? If it’s the latter then she was voting correctly for her constituents?

Of course we don't know what each and every Brexit voter wanted.... except to leave.
It is however that sort of "conscience clearing" plus political voting and self interest that has brought us to where we are with Brexit.

No-one voted for a "no-deal" Brexit, it wasn't on the ballot paper in the advisory referendum.

And it is well-established that MPs are representatives, not delegates.

NB None of that means that the lady in question is not a loathsome individual.

Actually I voted for a no deal brexit. I note today that the Treasury blocked a digital border that Javid suggested. We need to remember that the civil service is not independent and is basically a remainer organisation. Remind me, how many referendums have been held in the EU that have actually been upheld when a negative was returned? Sign of a good democratic system, or not?

There's a Brexit thread somewhere if you want to have a discussion about that. This thread is about the hopefully soon to be ex-MP and solicitor.

Not going to know until after May 1st.
Physical signings, not online with a running count.

Saw a report a couple of days ago that she has a meeting to decide if she should be struck off the solicitors register

I’m not sure it can be done via a meeting (unless she’s volunteering to come off), it would require a hearing before the SDT.
