Peterborough MP jailed

Former Labour MP Fiona Onasanya has been sentenced to three months in prison.

It comes after she was found guilty of perverting the course of justice. The judge who passed down the sentence said: “That is the shortest sentence I’m able to impose.”

Her brother Festus has also been jailed, for 10 months.

Onasanya will remain an MP unless she resigns or a Recall Petition of constituents in Peterborough is signed by 10% of those in the area. Ridiculous that, as it stands, she remains a Member of Parliament.
