Demand inquiry into dishonesty by Tory minister Ros Altmann!

This is clearly an extremely dishonest woman! 

The fact that David Cameron could allow such a person to become pensions minister is a scandal in itself, and we should demand her suspension while a full inquiry is held into the possibility of her participating in any other acts of dishonesty.

It is obvious that she cannot be trusted with a ministerial position and her resignation should be a matter of urgency.

Conservative pensions minister Baroness Altmann has been expelled from the Labour Party after it was found she had been a member for 18 months.

David Cameron made the ex-Saga director a peer so she could become a minister.

But The Huffington Post website revealed Baroness Altmann had been a Labour member for four months after taking up the role and was offered a vote in the party’s leadership contest.

She told the BBC she had also renewed her Lib Dem membership in March.

      If you move from one political party to another, you have a duty to make it clear. This woman failed to do so, therefore we must accept that this was a deliberate choice. Or perhaps she really does have dementia, in which case she should be removed from Parliament at once (consider the case of Lord Janner).

    Why not offer the LANDBURGER a peerage? He would fit in perfectly with Tory policy

    She should resign it’s hard to believe that this scandal has come about and with pensions of all things

    Duplicity! A foot in all camps stinks of hedging your political bets, and while clearly a conflict of interest, illustrates the greed of belonging to ANY gravy train.

      She only joined Labour and the Lib Dems to mess them about. She’s a Tory through and through and deserves the boot from the Upper House.

    She fooled the lot of them and played them and now she is a baroness and earning £74,000, if you wanted what she has and could achieve it having no scruples, integrity or morality, wouldn’t you go for it too? We have politicians who have no credibility because they will stoop to all sorts of tricks, why is anyone surprised that we have exposed one more?

      I think technically she exposed herself – which is another misdemeanour, if you think about it.
      Anyway, she deserves to be sent down because her behaviour falls far short of what we expect from members of the Upper House.

        You may still have expectations from the upper house – I have watched enough PMQ’s to know that we need to lower the bar – greatly.

    Why her and not the rest? The politicians that get caught are not intelligent enough to cover their tracks so it’s easier to keep an eye on them than the ones who get away with their little perks. What are you going to do about it anyway? If they get caught they don’t care. They are ruled by a private law that is in place to protect them, that’s what privilege is. It allows a bunch of clever psychopaths to have their fun.

    This bad baroness is beyond belief, utterly dishonest and unsuitable for any post. She should be stripped of all titles honours etc. and pay an enormous fine commensurate with her income that should go to labour party funding. Maybe that would learn her.!!!

    Why hasn’t there been a petition to get her the sack as well if she is just as vile like the evil, scheming IDS is!

      She hasn’t been around long enough to make a big enough impression.

    Her dishonesty seems to be a good qualification for a position in Cameron’s government.
