MP facing expenses fraud probe libelled Vox Political writer

Chris Davies MP: “The human equivalent of vermin.”

His expense form was not the only dodgy claim Chris Davies has made.

Last year he libelled This Writer when a local newspaper reported my suspension by the Labour Party amid (false) allegations of anti-Semitism.

Mr Davies was quoted as saying of me: “His defence of members of the Labour Party who have been suspended for racist and anti-Semitic offences is despicable.

“I call upon the Brecon and Radnorshire Labour Party to take a tough stance and expel Mr Sivier from the party. Anti-Semitism seems to be rife within the Labour Party and a message should be sent out that it will not be tolerated.”

Clearly he was pretending that the allegations were accurate – in the run-up to a local election in which I was standing as a candidate, in order to undermine support for myself and the Labour Party.

This is a crime. Strangely, the police were very keen not to investigate it – and in fact fabricated reasons to deny me access to justice.

As all claims of anti-Semitism against me have fallen apart, I have been awaiting an apology from Mr Davies. Vainly, it seems.

But what did I expect? He is the human equivalent of vermin and will get his comeuppance, just as soon as I can drag him into a courtroom.

Police could investigate an MP for fraud over an expenses claim he submitted in 2016.

Chris Davies, who represents Brecon and Radnorshire, said he made “an honest mistake” by claiming for furniture and pictures for his constituency office.

A complaint was made to the Conservative Party in March and was passed to the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA).

Mr Davies said he had repaid £450 after being asked to do so by IPSA.

    Seems like a common trait amongst the Torys. Scam the tax payer or break the rules and mark it down as an honest mistake. Cue Boris and May who will repeat it once the truth outs in the Salsbury poisoning case.

    He does sound a bit of a git, but if £450 is all he blagged that’s bugger all compared to some. Baroness Thornton got away with 100 grand !

    Now now, I think comparing Chris Davies to vermin is going a bit far, isn’t it?

    I mean, *some* species classed as vermin, like Australian rabbits, can be quite pleasant to look at…
