Turn it into a museum or a special events building and then move somewhere which proper debate can take place and isn't falling apart.

The former would pay for the latter over time.

Ian Lavery

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-41688280

Quote:
MP Ian Lavery received £165,000 from the 10-member trade union he ran.
We have learned this from the trade union regulator which has now released a report into Mr Lavery's actions as general secretary of the NUM Northumberland Area.
He will now face questions on his record over a number of disputed payments by the union he ran.


Just another Jimmy Hoffa.

Ian Lavery is a coming power in the land, Jeremy Corbyn's general election joint co-ordinator and chairman of the Labour Party. If the Conservatives fall, he's most likely destined for high office.
This is why Labour are neck and neck they can match the Tories talent for talent. To be fair Lavery didn't seek this he had mediocrity thrust upon him.

Lavery could have got off lightly. The complaint was made more than 6 years after most of the events, and the union didn't need to have kept proper records.

One bit that jumped out to me was that he was "made redundant" and got a pay off just at the moment he became an MP. Is that a good use of union funds? The position was being abolished, that's true enough, but to me that's somebody getting another (well-paid) job. Doesn't a Socialist pass on an extra freebie from the Union?

He's got Paul Mason on his side.

Yeah heroically getting £165k off sick miners is really heroic Paul.

I'm sure Kinnock's constituents can think of far more patriotic things to do with the horrendous £6bn price tag for Commons refurbishment.

I think SK's point is that Brexiters don't wrap themselves in Union Jacks when it comes to the free movement of capital and production.

Tetchy little prick Franck Field getting grief from his colleagues over his fantasy EU withdrawal bill

Frank Field is the perfect Brexiter. Cheap ad hominem point scoring, symbolic emotive claptrap, threats if he doesn't get his way, the lot. No wonder LeaveEU love him.

If you read the tweets that follow, they're almost all about how he's a great MP because he backs Leave. Nothing about what an arse he is on just about everything else; it's the only show in town.
