Bastard Parliament VII: Justice

David Chaytor, former Labour MP charged with false accounting, has pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey.

Hat tip to Guido Fawkes for breaking the story.


Chaytor will be sentenced on January 7th at Southwark Crown Court. Guido thinks he's made a plea bargain.

In other news, Phil Woolas has also had his appeal against the Special Election Court dismissed by the High Court. He now has no prospect of returning to the House of Commons. A by-election will be held in Oldham in January.
