Companies House finally removes Esther McVey’s name from political campaign group’s details

It turns out Esther McVey wasn’t involved with political campaigning organisation Loyal Scots Company after all.

Companies House has removed her name from that organisation’s listing, so we now have no reason to believe that she has been its secretary, as had been previously stated (by the Companies House listing).

I had reported on the matter here

And here.

Now Evolve Politics, which broke the story after it was uncovered by Alex Tiffin, has reported:

As Vox Political reported this too, it is also necessary for me to report the change.

But I still want to know why Ms McVey tried to attack Mr Tiffin before straightening this out.

And, come to think of it, why she stopped police from investigating the apparent fraud.

I see no information about either of these elements. Do you?

If Esther McVey isn’t part of a dodgy campaigning company, why tell police not to investigate it for fraud?

Esther McVey: Why did she tell police to stop investigating the company that listed her as its secretary?

Remember earlier in November, when then-Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey was revealed to be registered at Companies House as the Secretary of an apparently-dodgy campaigning organisation?

Ms McVey was named at Companies House as the secretary of Loyal Scots Company Ltd, a political campaign funding group allegedly worth £20 million. She had not notified the House of Commons of this financial interest. As secretary, she should be receiving correspondence to the company from HM Revenue and Customs, and may have broken the law by failing to file legally-required documents.

She said the person who brought the connection to public attention – Alex Tiffin – had not checked the facts, and that she had written to Companies House because her name had been used without her knowledge.

But it seems Companies House has done nothing and – according to Mr Tiffin – Ms McVey herself told police not to investigate after he alerted them to the alleged fraud:

Now, why would Companies House not do the former, and why would Ms McVey do the latter?

(I like the – deliberate? – mistake in the address listed in the tweet above, in which Wilmslow is listed as being in Denmark rather than Cheshire. Of course the number of the building on the street, together with the postcode, would be enough to ensure that any correspondence reached its intended destination.)

Given the information available, perhaps the police should be investigating the activities of Ms McVey, rather than Loyal Scots Company Ltd.

Esther McVey says she has been falsely connected with a campaigning company. Why is she trying to shoot the messenger?

We always knew the Work and Pensions secretary, Esther McVey, was a bully – this proves it graphically.

Alex Tiffin is an independent journalist who runs the Universal Credit Sufferer blog.

On the morning of November 3, he tweeted an extraordinary announcement about Ms McVey, following research at Companies House.

So Ms McVey is named at Companies House as the secretary of Loyal Scots Company Ltd, a political campaign funding group worth £20 million. She has not notified the House of Commons of this financial interest. As secretary, she should be receiving correspondence to the company from HM Revenue and Customs, and may have broken the law by failing to file legally-required documents.

Note that Mr Tiffin did not write the story – it was written up by Tom D. Rogers and published on Evolve Politics rather than Universal Credit Sufferer.

Ms McVey, however, seems to have taken against him:

The problem is: Mr Tiffin very obviously did check the facts. And he didn’t write the story that caused her to complain, so she can’t use the deadline on his email against him.

While it seems she has got the message and – if the information at Companies House really is false – is taking steps to rectify the matter, why is she trying to shoot the messenger?

Mr Tiffin made many of these points in his response to Ms McVey:

He added, later:

The question about the correspondence sent to Tatton Conservative Club is pertinent. It is inconceivable that an organisation like the Conservative Party would not forward mail to one of its MPs, so one questions what happened to it.

What happened next is deeply sinister.

It seems social media users who support Ms McVey dogpiled Mr Tiffin – verbally responded to his tweets on this subject with abuse in an attempt to intimidate him:

Why would they do that? If he really has uncovered a case of identity theft, then he has done her a favour by exposing it.

If there was nothing in it, then Ms McVey’s behaviour is unaccountable. She is behaving like a woman with something to hide. Why else would anybody attack a person who has revealed the fraudulent use of their name?
