EU turns Mote's pleas for help down

Former UKIP-embarrassment Ashley Mote's last line of defence against impending benefit fraud charges has recently been taken away by his sworn enemy, the EU.

But in an ironic twist, Ashley Mote actually begged and grovelled to the European Parliament to help protect him from prosecution after the UK Attorney General had requested that his immunity as an MEP be waived.

Unfortunately for Mr Mote, the European Parliament upheld the request from the British Government and Mote now faces trial at Portsmouth Crown Court starting on July 16th 2007 for housing benefit fraud alleged to involve obtaining tens of thousands of pounds worth of benefits.
