Brecon and Radnorshire by-election

A Tory MP convicted over fake expense claims has been unseated by a petition, triggering a by-election. Chris Davies was ousted after nearly a fifth of registered voters in his Brecon and Radnorshire constituency signed a petition to oust him.

In 2017, he secured a majority of more than 8,000 in a constituency where just over 41,000 people voted.

Let's see how the Boris-lovers turn out in force.

He shouldn't be allowed to stand as a Tory candidate.

It was a Lib Dem seat in 2010 and the three elections before that. Welsh Lib Dem leader is standing for it.

Interesting that he didn't have the whip withdrawn or be ejected from the tory party.

He pleaded guilty to the charge, the detail of which was the way he went about claiming £700, which he could easily have done, he broke the law in the way he actually did though.

I am surprised they would stand him again though, as he is unlikely to gain them votes and could easily lose them some. With pressure from both the Brexit Party on the right and Lib Dems on the left they might have difficulty retaining the seat and need to do everything to maximise than chance.

This will presumably be held after the next Prime Minister is in place? I'd expect an immediate Johnson bounce before it all comes tumbling down. Could actually increase the chance of a Lib Dem victory as Brexit party vote may split a little.

He should be booted out for being so stupid for not going back and getting two separate invoices and thinking faking one was a good idea. Does rather bring his judgments into question.

It's false accounting though. It's serious rather than just being stupid.

He should be sacked!! As a civil servant I would sacked immediately, rightly so, for doing something similar. Disgusting double standards he is allowed to stand again.

If he stands, surely that will hit the Tory vote.
Who decides when the by-election is held.

It's fraud, and he should be prosecuted. But in MP world it's described as a 'misdemeanor'.

He was convicted earlier in the year for it.

Ah, didn't realise. So he should be gone, then.

If he's a repeat offender should be prosecuted. Fraud, as you say is a crime.
