We all know that disgraced Labour MP for Luton South Margaret Moran has been officially “off sick” since the middle of last year. This has meant that she has not been seen around the constituency nor has she voted in Parliament during that period.
We have discovered recently, thanks to the Channel 4 ‘Dispatches’ programme, that while she has been too ill to serve her constituents, she seems to have sufficiently recovered to attend interviews with fake American lobbying firms. Yet information has been passed to me that over the last year she has also been well enough to fulfil a regular journalistic assignment.
Apparently, a monthly column written by Margaret Moran has continued to appear in Government Computing magazine.
I am told that Moran’s final column appears in the April 2010 edition. It starts with these words;
“Following all the bad news about Parliament, the mood in the house is downbeat.”
I wonder how she knows given that she hasn’t been there?
Margaret Moran also describes what she sees as the success of Eurim, the parliamentary lobby group Eurim chaired by Ms Moran and funded by some multinational companies. She writes;
“I hope our members have felt we are good value”
Isn’t that nice? I wonder whether her constituents in Luton South feel she has been good value?
