Quote from: BBC
Ex Labour MP David Chaytor has been jailed for 18 months for fraudulently claiming more than 20,000 in expenses.

Chaytor, 61, the former MP for Bury North, last month admitted three charges of false accounting.

He made claims for IT consultancy work he was never charged for and renting two homes which, it turned out, were owned by him and his mother.

...

A Labour Party spokesman said: "David Chaytor had already been suspended from the Labour Party and following his custodial sentence he has now been excluded from the party."

He got 18 months after pleading guilty. Clearly the courts want to make an example of him.

So, he's considered the worst offender? Is anybody else liable to have his day in court?

If I'm shown as having been active here recently it's either because I've been using the gallery, because I've been using the search engine looking up something from way back, or because I've been reading the most excellent UK by-elections thread again.

He'll be out in a couple of months anyway, unless he starts dealing drugs while inside or the rules have changed.

Idiot. Rastrick? Mr Rastrick? Roll Eyes

So, he's considered the worst offender?

As far I as know (and I've not followed this much, so I might be wrong) the worst offenders who're being prosecuted are Elliot Morley and Lord Hanningfield. Presumably they'll both get more when if found guilty. One of the worst offenders of all (Bill Wiggin) is not being prosecuted, which is just disgusting.
