McVey misleads MPs again – this time on Motability

This offender is habitual.

Esther McVey has been accused of telling falsehoods to her fellow MPs during a debate on the Motability car scheme, by the Tory MP who founded it.

It seems clear that Lord Sterling has the high ground – especially as Ms McVey is known to have misled Parliament – deliberately, in the opinion of This Writer – when she was a Department for Work and Pensions minister under Iain Duncan Smith.

The DWP is known to be target-driven, and it seems Motability is collateral damage in the department’s – and the Tory government’s – ongoing covert genocide of people with long-term sicknesses and disabilities.

Isn’t it time somebody pointed out what is really happening here?

A Tory peer has accused work and pensions secretary Esther McVey of making a series of untrue statements about the Motability car scheme to fellow MPs.

Lord Sterling, who co-founded Motability in 1977, has told McVey in a letter that he found the “litany of inaccuracies” in the comments made by her and fellow MPs in a debate earlier this month to be “deeply troubling”.

Lord Sterling’s letter also reveals that of 180,000 Motability customers who were previously claiming disability living allowance (DLA) and have so far been reassessed for the new personal independence payment (PIP), about 75,000 have lost eligibility to remain on the scheme and have had to return their cars, because of decisions by McVey’s department.

    Used to be an offence to knowingly mislead parliament, now it is just a childish amusement no more important than telling fibs of not raiding the cookie jar.

    It is a disgrace and they do not even try to hide it. They should not just not be ministers they should not be in Parliament. They are not even good liars.
