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 !!!

Vote closes at 5, papers seem to think it won't be announced until the morning.

Well done, Peterborough - 27% of the electorate signed the recall petition.

I wonder if such a large number will finally puncture her reality distortion field, or whether she'll still insist on standing as an independent?

I would have thought the deposit was worth the risk in her position, no MP job and she’s trying to upsell with fries for a while, compared to a salary she isn’t qualified to earn anywhere regardless of her conviction.

The stupid thing is, she could win as an independent considering the general displeasure that there seems to be to the two main parties.

Except that Peterborough is a fairly strong leave constituency and she has been an ardent remain voter in the house...... That may (hopefully) be enough to cook her goose!

That and the fact that 27% of the electorate (very nearly the same number who voted for her last time around) are so pissed off with her that they went to the trouble of going to one of a handful of signing points specifically in order to get rid of her. I don't think that sticking an "independent" label on is going to overcome that degree of loathing, however infuriated people are with the political class ATM.

She might get some votes as an independent as long as she doesn't use her own name on the ballot paper.

I understand there is an SDT hearing in August.

In many ways I am not surprised at the number electing to sign the petition since I haven't spoken to anyone who would admit to supporting her, all have said they would sign to get rid of her. 19,261 (27.6%) voted to 'sack' her, just 22,950 (32.4%) voted to elect her.

It is a great shame, irrespective of anyones political leanings, to see an individual effect such a catastrophic action in terms of the impact on their future life and career.

It'll be interesting to see what the by-election brings.

And just for clarity I do not live in her constituency.

I can only say in response to this. though sh1t. She was an MP and a solicitor. not an uneducated person, and chose her course of action, and her statements after the event show to me at least it was a pre meditated decision borne of a feeling of entitlement that the law does not apply to them

anyone that commits a crime of dishonesty jeopardises any career prospects and she knew better but didn't care thinking herself untouchable or too clever by half

Yes, there are many occupations in which "a little dishonesty" is tolerated, but anyone entering the legal profession knows the likely consequences of doing what she did. It will be a tough lesson--which I'm equally sure she will not learn.

I didn't mean to imply that this was not premeditated. In fact I agree with you that it was and has been followed by a stupefying level of arrogance. Her story changed appreciably between the two trials and I found it very telling that she conducted her own appeal hearing. In that respect I feel that even a first year law student would have arrived better prepared than she did.

She has totally destroyed her future employment prospects and still doesn't recognise it. In her announcement today that she is not standing in the by-election she said
QUOTE
To those who sent racially abusive, threatening, bullying, derogatory and vulgar remarks - as advised in my video, I will clear my name and I was willing and able to continue for as long as constituents wished for me to do so.
She still does not accept that what she did is wrong.

Little dishonesty ?

Most of the bosses I've worked for would tolerate something like speeding points.
One said that 3 came with the job, 6 meant be more careful, 9 drive like a nun, 12, plead insanity or hand in your notice.

I think all would have accepted me fighting a speeding charge if they agreed it was iffy.
Would have told me to take the points and not be stupid otherwise.
None would have been very happy with PCOJ, that sort of conviction opens questions about honesty and judgement and whether the person can be trusted at work.
Would you want someone in a position of responsibility who is stupid enough to get in that position ?

I’m not sure how she’s intending to clear her name..... but it could be entertaining to watch!

So she's not running: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cambr...eshire-48153535

But her website has been partially updated to reflect the fact that she's not an MP any more:

As Peterborough’s MP, Fiona engaged with local plans for a university in Peterborough, methods for combating fly-tipping, and looked at ways to help the local NHS.

Outside of the political arena, Fiona is an active member of her church and is an avid reader, but she also loves dogs and enjoys spicy food.


As an active member of her church, maybe they can offer her a position in the soup kitchen?

The porridge must have been particularly distressing for her, then.

As sure as night follows day. I see the SRA went for massive costs, again - can’t think of a simpler case for strike off!

QUOTE
Onasanya was struck off following a half-day hearing, but the SDT also opted to cut the £22,762 costs claimed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Tribunal chair Edward Nally expressed 'anxiety' about the figure, which was based on 40 hours' preparation, and reduced it to £6,562.
