With a nice sense of timing, Bexley’s Head of Legal Services has fixed
for Mr. Barnbrook to meet him to discuss his various complaints relating to the
Cheryl Bacon Closed Session affair, or to be more precise, the lies she told to
try to absolve herself from responsibility. A nice sense of timing because the
invitation arrived on the very same day that the former Labour minister, Denis MacShane
pleaded guilty to inventing his Parliamentary expenses claims.
It was Mick Barnbrook who first reported MacShane to the police, the official report confirms it…
Naturally the Commissioner ignored the complaint to start with and when he went to the police they looked at Mick’s evidence and dismissed it as worthless. Only after the Commissioner decided there was a case to answer was Mick able to persuade the police to take his complaint seriously.
Yesterday MacShane admitted it all and may well now be on his way to jail where all bent politicians should be.
Mick is just the man needed to pursue the burgher MacBacon for as long as it takes - and he will.
