Davies guilty of expenses fraud. Time for a by-election in Brecon and Radnorshire

Guilty: Chris Davies.

Chris Davies, Conservative MP for Brecon and Radnorshire, has admitted two offences of expenses fraud. Now the people of Brecon and Radnorshire can have their fun.

We (the Brecon and Radnorshire electorate) may now petition for the MP to be recalled and for a by-election in the constituency.

If at least 10 per cent of registered electors sign a recall petition, we can have an election and get rid of him.

The petition should be triggered automatically, and it will be for Brecon and Radnorshire’s Returning Officer – and also Powys County Council’s chief executive – Dr Caroline Turner to make it available to the public.

If it isn’t, Brecon and Radnorshire electors can register their concern by contacting Dr Turner via the council on 01597 826000.

There should be an announcement by the House of Commons Speaker’s Office, too. You can email [email protected] to ask about it, too.

    Yet another thoroughly dishonest and corrupt Tory – one of many. Bring on the by-election ASAP.

  2. Trevor Marron

    He should lose his job. We are his employers, he tried to steal from us. If you or I was caught stealing from our employer we would be fairly quickly dismissed, it would need no court dates first.

    MPs should be told “Fiddle your expenses and you are finished” the same as anyone else.

    1. Robbie

      No he did not try and steal from you – his claims would have been met had he presented them on split receipts to the relevant budgets, A serious clerical error he sought to cover but the money was not for personal gain but constituency MPs office furnishings.

    1. Robbie

      Constituency Office furnishings – incorrectly invoiced and poor attempt to cover up – no personal gain involved.

      1. Robbie

        I was simply advising Jeffrey Davies that duck ponds and paddocks were not involved and that his legitimate claim was wrongly presented along with a silly attempt to cover it up…unlike Fiona Onasanya he did at least plead guilty.

      2. Mike Sivier Post author

        Yes, he admitted the offence, after a very long period of trying not to. I stand by my words about his character. I have personal experience of him and he is, in my opinion, loathsome.

  3. Rik

    So this thieving b*****d is not only content earning a decent salary plus perks he decides to steal/fiddle the taxpayers hard earned money as well . . . should be sacked,no ifs it buts….

      1. Mike Sivier Post author

        That isn’t true; there was personal gain involved. The items weren’t intended for his constituents or charity – they were for him.

      2. Robbie

        They were office furnishings for the constituency office and quite permissable and the court confirmed this was not for personal gain.

      3. Mike Sivier Post author

        How nice of the court. But who was to use those office furnishings if not Mr Davies?

      4. Robbie

        Are you suggesting the court was wrong? The office is there for the incumbent MP and the constituents Brecon and Radnorshire if they have business with him.

      5. Mike Sivier Post author

        Constituents would not, as a rule, attend his office; they would attend surgeries held in their locality.

  4. Robbie

    Mike, can you please confirm what you meant by the comment “How nice of the court”, please?
    I think, too, it depends on the constituency as to where and when the MP holds surgeries
