There are certainly no serious sex abuse allegations hanging over Rochdale's current MP like there are regarding the "Strange Case of Smith the Man"
But we have been worried about Paul. The Audit Commission's new OnePlace website gives Rochdale a red flag for obesity.
Over 2008 and 2009 has Paul been flying the obesity Red Flag with his own lifestyle paid for by the taxpayer? Paul's paunch has been expanding. Some cruel critics suggested he was living off the fat of the land.
The latest allowances for Paul Rowen have just been released.
Has Paul been Greedy with our money?
The 2008/09 ACA receipts have the answer- food glorious food. Over £2500 claimed by Paul Rowen for food without the need for receipts.
So we will never know just what type of food Paul used our money to claim for. Porkie pies? Fudge? Swiss (bank) roll? Chocolate fool? Banana surprise? Pig's ear in thick gravy?
Last year Paul Rowen threatened the Guardian Media Group with libel over reporting of his expenses. GMG folded rather than fight a legal battle but RAW is adamant that the Rochdale Observer and Manchester Evening News were right to question Paul Rowen on the dodgy claims he has made. Especially for his office rent, communications, advertising, staff and envelope stuffing.
So today, the truth is now out for 2008/09 - Greedy Paul claimed over £2500 in food.
Paul also claimed over £600 for bathroom repairs: “Seal joints on cistern and pan”
Did the ever expanding Paul Rowen break his toilet?
Those Rochdale Lib Dems leaks can be expensive- trouble is, the taxpayer foots the bill.
The taxpayer also spent over £200 on Paul Rowen's home insurance. This included legal expenses cover of £22.05. Has Paul informed his insurer, Tesco, that he has made repeated legal threats this year? If he hasn't could his insurance be void?
Would that be more of our hard-earned money down the pan?
Time for a diet Paul- paid for out of your own pocket.
We suggest a large helping of... Humble Pie.
