John Leech MP (right) is yet to be categorised by the Lib Dem Voice "clean bill" feed. Not like him to be slow in coming forward in such matters.
But the whole thing these Lib Dems are doing is rather meaningless I'd say. The Legg process is rather unsatisfactory and unfairly discriminatory in its tackling of the easy stuff and ig-norance of the hard stuff. And that's just on the ACA of course. PR Paul Rowen MP for example DOES NOT have a clean bill of health in most regards.
It's a great shame that he has used a media outlet with which he has a commercial relationship - using tax payers' money - to declare himself "clean". The dirty dog.
Here's my comment at LDV:
Calling this “clean bill of health” is silly. The scope is narrow and there is no cap on mortgage interest and no scrutiny of three of the four allowances areas. Also no scrutiny over donations and fundraising. And also a “no comment” policy on those entrained in other legal enquiries, clawbacks and disciplinaries.
“Clean bill of health” is quite wrong. It’s shameless exaggeration. And that goes for all parties. David Chaytor and Jacqui Smith has a “clean bill of health” on the basis of Legg letters I think. This does somethingly demean the currency doncha think?
