The Guilty One?


Is this the Guilty One in Featherstone's office who spent £22,000 on stationary in a single month? Cllr. Butcher is Head of the MP's office, so Hunter is guessing it's him...

If it isn't him, then who is the guilty face? The truth will out!

No mention Justin of the correction the Ham & High printed about the stationary story after one of their journalists printed stuff emailed to them by a Conservative which turned out to be riddled with errors and made up charges... perhaps the email was from you and you're embarrased by it now?

What correction is this? Give us the link. Have corrections also been printed in the national media which covered this? Wouldn't surprise me if the 'correction' was nothing of the kind, just some Featherstone flannel designed to make the whole business sound less shocking!

Hello, Annon (Matt?)

I haven't a clue as to what you're talking about. As David says, can you show us the alleged correction? Probably a reader's letter written by Pack and in the name of some gullible vicar...

Actually the correction/apology was published by the editor of the H&H underneath Lynne's monthly column as parts of the report made the previous week were incorrect and libellous. The story was supplied by Justin - why do you think he didn't brag about it before it was published - because he sold them an 'exclusive'. Get over your obssession with Lynne F you weirdo. And get a life while you're at it.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I don't have an obsession with Featherbrain. So when is she going to sue the Mail on Sunday? As for "getting a life", I have one already; I'm not some sad politico, like you (?), and do have a wonderful life in the real world, thank you very much.

"The story was supplied by Justin - why do you think he didn't brag about it before it was published - because he sold them an 'exclusive'." What a ridiculous idea! The story was first published in the MoS _ that's where Justin got it from _ he simply passed it on to the local media. They would presumably have found it themselves if they bother to read the national press. If JH DID have an inside story, knowing him, he'd want all the credit for breaking the story himself and not sell it on at all. I shall see if this so-called retraction is on the H&H site. It would be a pity if they were so spineless that they have retracted a story that other media outlets saw fit to print and stand by as fair comment simply because they were afraid of receiving some solicitor's letter threatening to sue for libel.

Hornsey Journal - she tried to gaga the leaker
LYNNE Featherstone, Hornsey and Wood Green MP, has been forced to explain herself after her office racked up a £22,000 stationery bill in just one month.

The Parliamentary bill for postage and stationery is understood to have doubled in March as MPs rushed to beat the introduction of limits on allowances at the end of the month, according to a leaked e-mail by a senior official.

MPs were accused of stuffing their pockets ahead of the crackdown but Ms Featherstone - whose yearly stationery allowance is £7,000 - insisted it had been a clerical error.

She said: "The rules are changing and just ahead of the deadline for the more stringent rules coming in one of my staff ordered an excessively large amount of stationery.

"As soon as I found out what happened the week before last I instructed it be returned and have put in place procedures to ensure it does not happen again."

She added that the Liberal Democrat's chief whip would be taking up the matter of the leaked e-mail with the Speaker's Office.

I'm sure it's an accident, cos the liberals are nice and cuddly and would never want to defraud the public, being squeaky clean and all that.

I wonder if it will be printed on the extra-special, highly produced Focus newsletter!?
