At long last – and contrary to the expectations of many who saw the limitations-clock ticking down to a free pass for the Tories – police have begun to take action following their investigations into fraudulent Tory election expenditure.
The recent emergence of whistleblowers among Tory General Election campaigners, who have testified to the knowing breaches of spending laws by Conservative campaign managers and MPs, has done much to focus the attention of mainstream press and broadcasters who had previously acted as if the investigation did not exist.
All to the good.
But there has also been talk over the last week or so of one or two Tories being ‘made an example of’ as a means of putting the matter to bed.
Let’s be clear, Tory election fraud in 2015 was planned, systematic and virtually nationwide – around 30 Tory MPs/candidates were implicated and most were under active police investigation.
A number greater than their parliamentary majority.
The Tories must not be allowed to throw McKinlay and/or another hapless patsy ‘under the bus’ in the hope of defusing public anger and calls for the General Election result to be annulled.
If charges are proven – and the evidence appears overwhelming – then every damaging law and decision by this despicable government, from cuts to the income of disabled people to the idiotic and cowardly decision by David Cameron to call the EU referendum and the hate-crime and despair that many have suffered as a result, are fruit of that huge and deliberate crime.
No sacrificial lamb can be remotely enough. Nothing less than a full reckoning will do.
