#Richard Fuller banging on about #benefitfraud when he should be targetting the real criminals, #Bankers

Yesterday Richard Fuller was hoping to highlight benefit fraud in his Parliamentary Questions. The Minister responsible didn’t have much of the information available to answer as the Government are not very good at collecting it, or finding it.

Richard Fuller: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions,
what proportion of people found to be committing benefit fraud and not
prosecuted in court in each of the last two years (a) have repaid monies
due in full, (b) are actively making repayments, (c) are in arrears with
their repayments and (d) have since been prosecuted for breaching their

Richard Fuller: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how
many cases of benefit fraud were identified in each of the last three
years; and what proportion of such cases were prosecuted in court.

I think a much more interesting question would be something like:
To ask the Secretary of State what proportion of highly paid bankers have
(a) committed fraud in each of the last six years, 
(b)what proportion of bankers involved in the financial crash of 2008 
have been prosecuted, 
(c) what proportion of bankers are making re-payment of bonus payments 
received for their part in the financial crash

I don't think Mr Fuller will ask that sort of question, he doesn't want to upset
the Tory vote.
