Yet More Labour Fraud


Labour County councillor Olive McIntosh-Stedman has been charged with council tax fraud. Ms McIntosh-Stedman, a county councillor for Cowley and Littlemore since 1997, was charged with two counts of making false council tax benefit claims in 2002.

She has denied all the charges, but has quit the Labour group and is currently sitting as an independent. She will appear before Oxford Crown Court for trial next month. Ms McIntosh-Stedman, 64, of Williamson Way, Rose Hill, Oxford, is a registered nurse with a diploma in women's studies and a degree in publishing.

Last night (Tuesday) she said: "There is a great misunderstanding and all that will be cleared up in due course." Oxford City Council, which is bringing the prosecution, declined to comment on the particulars of the case or reveal how much it was alleged Ms McIntosh-Stedman tried to claim from the authority.

She is innocent until proven guilty.

Would you be prepared to use that same statement when members of the BNP are hounded by the media over similar issues?

So true, I wonder if they'll have any of these disgusting stories over at ANAL or UAF?
Such hypocrisy, luckily the electorate is fully aware what the big Three Gravy Train Robbers have been up to.

Oxford, huh? We need to ask, does this handsome lady REALLY possess these hi-falutin' qualifications? Or is she like that fake expert psychiatrist whose word was taken as gospel in far-too-many courts recently, the one whom nobody dared to question until it was too late?
If she HAS a degree at all, it's probably from some dump where they study Marcus Garvey, queer theory, and the Notting Hill Carnival, and where they ruan special classes to cope with all the foreign imports who can't speak or write English.
