Sign the petition to put pressure on Labour MP Eric Illsley to resign from Westminster, people deserve better from someone in Parliament

Dear All

Here is an email I received.

Dear Co-Conspirator,

Happy New Year. One gaoled MP and plenty more to go. This morning opposition MP Eric Illsley pleaded guilty to three counts of fraud, yet he can stay in Parliament, claiming his salary for a month until he is sentenced, despite admitting his thieving guilt. The Sunlight Centre, of which Guido is a big supporter, have set up a petition to call on him to quit immediately:

We, the undersigned, call on Eric Illsley to immediately resign and trigger a by-election in Barnsley Central.


Thank you all

Guido Fawkes Esq.

If you’re interested in signing up to put pressure on someone who shouldn’t be an MP then cut and paste the link and sign up to the petition.

I have signed up because it is important that people in public life behave and set a standard.

Eric Illsley is a disgrace.

And is it nice to think I am considered a “Co-Conspirator” even though it is a general email!

Yours sincerely
