Disgraced Lord Hanningfield wants prison reform

Basildon Recorder: Lord Hanningfield Lord Hanningfield

DISGRACED peer Lord Hanningfield has revealed he is looking to use his prison experience to help others.

The former Tory leader of Essex County Council, who served a quarter of a nine-month sentence for fiddling his House of Lords expenses, says he has returned to his patrliamentary work.

He has advertised for a researcher to help him with a new reform campaign.

Lord Hanningfield – real name Paul White – wants the staffer to help him work on a plan for prison reform and mental health improvements from October.

He said: “The whole idea of prison reform is to stop reoffending and to give young people a chance before we get a new generation in prison.

“I saw how the young children suffer and how prison visitor rooms are like playschool.

“The young people themselves are not getting the help for the future they need and a lot more needs to be done.”

Lord Hanningfield claimed nearly £14,000 for overnight stays in London and journeys he never made or someone else paid for. On one occasion, he was on a plane to India.

He suggested he may not have been jailed were it not for the public and media furore surrounding the expenses scandal.

He claims his age, 71, gives him a unique perspective, coupled with 40 years of public service. He still struggles to come to terms with his imprisonment. He added: “There are not many people like me.

“I was in for a short time. Other people wouldn’t have been jailed for £13,000 of parliamentary expenses, but it was all hyped up by the media, so there was no choice.

“But having had the experience, I know there needs to be reform and improvement in the education offered in prison to people, some of whom can’t read or write.”

Lord Hanningfield is also hoping to increase people’s understanding of mental health issues. He said: “I have been through acute depression myself and had to have treatment for it.

“A lot of people are in prison with mental problems and a lot were involved in crime because of the same mental problems.

“For me, it was more traumatic before I was in prison because of the publicity, but I have learnt from it and want to use the experience to help others now.”

What an expenses fiddling ****! On the other hand, at least he has had some experience of what life is like when you don't have an expense account to fiddle.

Also, when House of Lords reform is introduced, perhaps introducing a manadatory CRB check every year would help reduce the chances of criminal scum like this governing us?

Yep, he sounds really remorseful! Full of bitterness because he feels hard done by, and just brushing over the fact he defrauded the taxpayer.
Lying, cheating scumbag.

Rather than banging on about prison reform- there are plenty out in the free world who have been doing so for years and it's not necessarily a bad cause- perhaps he should take a leaf out of the book of a much greater politician, John Profumo. Following his fall from grace Profumo started cleaning toilets at Toynbee Hall, a charitable institution in the East end of London. Profumo worked with this charity for the rest of his long life and was rehabilitated to a large extent into the society whose trust he had lost.

Hanningfield's debt to today's society has in no way been paid. He bleats about the sentence he received suggesting that it would have been less had it not been for media attention- of course he courted the media in his political life when it suited him.

Now a message for the man himself:

A little humility and taking responsibility for your greed, Hanningfield- that's what the 'ordinary' people want to see. Now, don your Marigolds and get scrubbing and one day you might deserve to sit at the same table as decent, honest, hard working people.

Actually, lets be fair. He was scapegoated as an "example" "pour encourager les autres".
The wrong question was asked about his expenses - it should not have been "is this detail correct?"; rather it should have been "is the amount he has gained from public funds reasonable as an overall payment for work done?". The Lords does not pay a salary.

If memory serves me right Jeffery Archer served a longer sentence than Lord Hanningfield - why he has not had his title taken away I am at a loss to understand – yet he did not come out of prison with grand ideas to reform the institutions in which he served his sentence.

The sheer arrogance of the man!!!!!!!!!

Whilst no doubt there are need for some reforms within our prisons I am sure there are many people far more qualified than this jumped up T*** to do so.

After all he was only convicted of stealing money from the public coffers I would hazard a guess that whilst he has repaid £30,000.00 the sum involved is much more!!!!!

Oh, come on!

He was claiming for overnight hotel stays in London when he wasn't, on some occasions, even in the country; even a child would know that that isn't right.

I have seen examples in my company where people have been dismissed from employment for claiming an extra hour's overtime that they hadn't done as it was regarded as a betrayal of trust and tantamount to fraud, and trust me, the amount was nowhere near £13k.

He also conveniently forgets that he is, I believe, still being investigated with regard to his claims as head of Essex County Council and possible inappropriate use of his ECC car and chaffeur. It is possible he could still face charges for that.

A little remorse would be a little more appropriate rather than the crocodile tears.

Excuse me but Members of the House of Lords, who are not paid a salary, may claim a daily allowance of £300 (or may elect to claim a reduced daily allowance of £150) per sitting day - but only if they attend a sitting of the House and/or committee proceedings.

So as well as expenses he could claim a minimum of £150.00 for each day he attends Parliament no matter if he is only there for 10 minutes.

He is free to carry out work in any other guise unlike MP’s who are elected to represent the people and are therefore classed as paid employees and receive a salary for doing so.

Dear White (sorry, you have abused the right to be referred to as a Lord and I don't feel comfortable with the "Dear" bit either!), you don't appear to be getting very much sympathy from the public. Had you decently fulfilled your awarded sentence instead of a few weeks, think how much more worthwhile experience you would have gained of prison existence.
I personally am sick and tired of hearing about the poor, poor inmates of our prisons. Why don't you do something useful with this experience and knowledge you have gained and help the public who are the real victims of those people you are sticking up for and supporting.
And just how you manage to weedle your way back into a job after committing and being found guilty of fraud amazes me. Only in Government obviously.

Prisons do not need reforming, the people in them are the ones that do need reforming.
There are many different types of prisoner, majority of whom will take to the programmes that are offered in prison to assist them to be accepted outside and to be able to leave prison with skills other than criminal skills. It is clearly documented on what is available to prisoners once they have been sentenced.
There is a hard core of prisoners who spend most of their lives in and out of a prison and have no intention of reforming themselves and given the first opportunity to re-offend, they will take it and likely end up inside again.
What is required is the ability of the offender to come to terms with what they have done and stop re-offending, the prions today give the offender that opportunity.
Unfortunately we have around 82K offenders currently in prison which you and I pay for, we also pay through their crimes. So it is not prisons that need reforming, its the offenders. What Lord H refers to is somewhat beyond me as there is not way with the shortness of his sentence will he have had the opportunity to assess the conditions to make a statement that he needs to reform anything.

What Lord H refers to is somewhat beyond me as there is not way with the shortness of his sentence will he have had the opportunity to assess the conditions to make a statement that he needs to reform anything.

She may get you rattled, for whatever reason that float your sinking boat but i find her posts to be rather along the lines of ' oh you naughty thing' or the bite of a toothless gnat! She states things then slips off to avoid having to give evidence of what she states. Think she learnt that from most of your racist sickos on here. Hit and run.

As for clown, if im that then you are a clown assistant for you have been slapped back under the stone you crept from appearing now and again to post just as you have. Weak and pathetic.

Yes I know he paid the money back that he got caught out stealing but he should have paid back at least ten times that amount as a token of his remorse!!!!!!!!!!

Order. Order. Yes, let's get this thread back on track please. How many criminals would just love to give back what they've been caught stealing and just spend a quarter of their punishment in prison before coming out and potentially carry on where they left off? Are there adequate precautions in place to prevent the elected politicians as well as the unelected "Peers of the Realm" from continuing to defraud the taxpayer?
