Political dynamite, Jo Swinson fails to declare to parliament the huge amount of money her husband's company receives from EU...

If that turns out to be correct I assume the BBC will pick it up....

Certain to lose a lot of votes as it's clear why she wants to cancell brexit.

And unless all the LIbs have gullible stamped on their foreheads how can she possibly continue to get their support.

This is old news no?

I'm sure this story was kicking around not long after she took over the leadership.

@Minivanman 

It might be old news to some but I do not recall seeing it on the news or in the press during the time she has been leader of the party ?

As to not declaring that to parliament, what action have they taken over it...if any ?

The article is dated 4th October but I have never seen it mentioned on news or any politics program....

Re: Jo Swinson outed

Not mainstream, but there have been tweets about it going back some time but as you both say not mainstream news. I do know that once she was made leader a lot of digging was done and it was one of the things that came up about her apparent hypocrisy.

So nothing new about so many of them.

Speaking of political news, have you seen this? To me this woman should be out on her ear quick sharp, there is simply no excuse for this, regardless of who you are.

Of course there's always the facts, but hey who cares about those these days:

@beeceegee 

Interesting article, hard to know these days what is accurate and what is not.

You could spend hours or days researching everything you read only to get different facts or opinions about any claims made.

I suspect most people neither have the time or inclination to spend that amount of time and have to make a judgement or form an opinion on what they read or see.

What I see in Swintons case is she is showing two fingers to 17.4 million people and no way can that figure can be disputed.

Spreadsheet Phil Hammond not standing for re-election as an MP, he was due to stand as an independent but must have put the figures in one of his spreadsheets and come up with bad figures, and decided to dodge the ignominy of losing his deposit in December...

Meanwhile, some are wondering why the new Speaker of the House is called Linseed Oil.

Third place, but would have been nice if Eleanor Laing had got chosen.

@Anonymous 

Always found those sort of programmes to be a bit of a wind up, but who amongst us if we are being truthful have not thought something similar? A kick up the rear at the very least.

At least Linseed OIl appears to be a lot more neutral than The poison Dwarf,  Linseed prevented remainer MPs putting forward a motion to lower voting age to 16 for December GE.

Maybe post EU either way and after all the divisions, we could have a new one for the UK.

All together now. 😍

Apparently "Our Gracie" as she was known sang this on her return to the UK after the second world war.
