Taxpayers’ Alliance ask police to investigate Morley

The Taxpayer’s Alliance writes:

Why we have called the police in to investigate MPs’ expenses

Matthew Elliott Following the latest – and most shocking – revelations in the MPs’ expenses saga, regarding Elliot Morley’s claims for a mortgage that had already been paid off, the TaxPayers’ Alliance have registered a formal complaint with the Metropolitan Police today. We have asked them to investigate whether Mr Morley is in breach of any laws, including the Fraud Act 2006.

After a little bit of confusion on the part of the police, who tried to suggest we should “complain to our MP“, they have registered our call with an Incident Number (CAD2149) and apparently police officers will be meeting with Parliamentary Officials today. We should hear more later this afternoon.

Isn’t it astonishing that the police should recommend that Matthew Elliott should “complain to our MP”?

Matthew Elliott said he would consider bringing a private prosecution against Mr Morley if the police take no action.

If so, let’s back him.
