A Labour MP conned a local authority out of £64,000 in benefits by
'deliberately and dishonestly' obtaining social house, after using her
connections as a housing advisor to 'jump the queue', a court heard today.
Apsana Begum, the MP for Poplar and Limehouse in east London, claimed
she was living in 'overcrowded conditions' with her family when she was
in a four bedroomed house with three other people, jurors were told.
I, of course, make no comment...
The case is sub-judice.
But the names "Huhne" and "Onasanya" keep springing to mind.
