Liberal Democrat PPC for Luton South, Qurban Hussain, has commented on Margaret Moran’s suspension from the Parliamentary Labour Party following last night’s Channel 4 ‘Dispatches’ programme;
“The Labour party think that banning her from standing again is ‘tough action’. This ‘tough’ action has allowed for her to claim another year’s salary while not doing the job we pay her to do. The programme revealed she has not voted once since May meaning that the voice of local residents has not been heard since then.
Margaret Moran will collect a £54,000 bonus on election day on top of her £64,000 salary from this year. This isn’t fair, right or defensible.
I am sure the people of Luton South will remember on election day that the Luton Labour party failed to speak up for them and call for Ms. Moran to resign.”
You can read the statements in full on the Luton Liberal Democrats website.
