This afternoon I submitted a complaint to the Office of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards. The complaint is against a female Labour MP, and relates to breaches of the guidelines relating to the proper use of the Communications Allowance. The complaints themselves are concerned with her website, and in particular:
- that it is covered with Labour party logos.
- that it is used to publicise Labour-angled publications.
- that it is used to make claims about Labour's record in a partisan fashion.
I don't want to say much more, just in case it prejudices my complaint and/or leads to crafty changes on the website. But I'll keep you informed of any updates.
