MAY SLAPS DOWN VAZ

Theresa May slaps down Keith Vaz saying the public need ‘confidence’
in their politicians as the scandal-hit MP shrugs off the male escort
exposé refuses to quit and returns to the Commons 

  • Married father of two Keith Vaz was exposed for paying rent boys for sex in a flat ten minutes from his home
  • Labour MP, 59, has refused to step down and blamed scandal on newspaper that uncovered his hypocrisy
  • Mr Vaz also threatens to sue rival MP who said he was ‘not fit for office’ and demanded a police investigation
  • His wife of 23 years Maria Fernandes appears to be standing by husband and left house with him today
  • MP then went to Commons where he asked a question about Britons who have fled to fight for ISIS in Syria
  • Speaking from the G20 summit in China, Theresa May said people look for ‘confidence in their politicians’ 
The
Prime Minister today took a swipe at Keith Vaz as the scandal-hit
politician broke cover for the first time since he was exposed for
paying rent boys for sex.
Addressing
the lurid allegations from the G20 summit in China, Theresa May said
‘people look for confidence in their politicians’ and that it is the
duty of MPs ‘to provide for those who elect us’.
Mr Vaz, 59, was today told he is ‘not fit’ for office as 1,850 joined a Facebook group
calling on him to quit immediately. But in the face of hostile
criticism it was business as usual for the Leicester East MP, who headed
straight to Parliament to address his fellow MPs.   
The
Labour politician looked tired as he left his north London home with
his wife of 23 years Maria Fernandes, who appears to be standing by her
husband despite the alleged sex scandal.  
He
later appeared in the Commons to ask a question about Britons going off
to fight for ISIS in Syria. One observer on Twitter said: ‘Vaz was
speaking in the Commons as if nothing’s happened’.
And
fighting back further the shamed MP threatened libel action against a
Tory MP who called on him to resign and urged police to investigate him.

There
was complete silence from MPs as he spoke to the Commons and
congratulated Amber Rudd on being appointed Home Secretary, with some
claiming he may still try to remain Chairman of the Home Affairs Select
Committee.
Speaking
in a calm voice with no hint of the scandal that has embroiled him, he
referred to the case of Siddhartha Dhar, who was alleged to have
appeared in a propaganda video released by ISIS after fleeing Britain in
2014 despite having been arrested six times.
Mr
Vaz said: ‘Will she follow the advice of Mark Rowley, the head of
counter terrorism, and expect suspects to hand over their passports as a
precondition for bail?’
There
was silence as Ms Rudd thanked Mr Vaz for ‘raising this very important
matter’ and added: ‘It was a very distressing case where he was able to
go away, on bail, and go away to do such damage and join Daesh out in
Syria’. 
He then stayed for more than an hour where he asked a question about Yemen.

The
married father of two has been urged to ‘do the honourable thing’ and
resign from Parliament after he allegedly paid male escorts to attend a
sordid party at his London ‘sex flat’.  
The Facebook group ‘P45 for Keith Vaz’ is filled with people calling on the MP to resign immediately. 
Mr Vaz
has apologised to his wife and children for the ‘hurt and distress’ he
caused them after he was allegedly filmed meeting two rent boys at his
flat where he pretended to be a washing machine salesman called ‘Jim’. 

KEITH VAZ THREATENS TO SUE CRITICAL RIVAL MP 

Keith Vaz has threatened to sue a rival MP he has accused of ‘spreading highly defamatory scuttlebutt’.
Tory Andrew Bridgen, right, has received a letter from law firm Howard Kennedy.
It
warns the Tory MP, who represents the neighbouring North West
Leicestershire constituency, he is being put ‘on formal notice that if
this shabby behaviour continues our client will no longer turn a blind
eye’.
Mr
Bridgen has been highly critical of the Labour MP and is expected to
write to Scotland Yard calling for Mr Vaz to be investigated for
misconduct in a public office and conspiracy to supply controlled
substances.
A source close to Mr Bridgen said the legal letter was ‘desperate’.
‘It’s
an attempt to close down any further investigation and suppress
information. It’s a badly worded, hurried and fairly shabby letter.’ 
A
series of texts allegedly showed he asked the Eastern European sex
workers to bring poppers – sex-enhancing drugs – to a liaison.
In
one meeting with the pair, Mr Vaz is said to have offered to pay for
cocaine if it was brought to a sex party – but stressed he did not want
any himself.
Mr
Vaz, who took part in a safe sex campaign in his Leicester East
constituency last year, apparently told the male escorts that during an
encounter with another prostitute they all knew, the man had forgotten
to bring a condom but they had sex anyway.
Fellow
Leicestershire MP Andrew Bridgen has said he would be contacting the
parliamentary standards watchdog to demand a full inquiry, and said the
police should also investigate. 
Today Mr Bridgen was sent a letter from Mr Vaz’s lawyers warning him they might sue him.
The
letter said: ‘You have been maliciously spreading false and highly
defamatory scuttlebutt about him. We are writing to put you on formal
notice that if this shabby behaviour continues our client will no longer
turn a blind eye to this and take steps to sue you personally’ 
Silver
Star, a diabetes charity set up by the Leicester East MP, has also
brought in law firm Carter Ruck as his fightback continues.
A source close to Mr Bridgen said the legal letter was ‘desperate’.
‘It’s
an attempt to close down any further investigation and suppress
information. It’s a badly worded, hurried and fairly shabby letter.’ 
Mr Bridgen had told the Mail Mr Vaz was not a ‘fit and proper person’ to remain an MP and said the police should investigate.
He said: ‘I think misconduct in public office and conspiracy to supply a controlled substance – they’re both criminal offences.
‘I
really think this is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Keith
Vaz’s activities and I think there is a lot more to come out about him. 
‘He
certainly should resign as chairman of the home affairs select
committee and quite honestly I have long been of the opinion that Keith
Vaz is not a fit person to be a member of parliament.

‘His
position is completely untenable and he brings Parliament into
disrepute by hanging on like this when he should do the decent thing and
resign.
‘But I don’t think Keith Vaz knows the decent thing to do’.
He said that he has been ‘dropping information’ to  Leicestershire Police over the past 18 months.
He
said: ‘I would call on the people of Leicester who know an awful lot
about Mr Vaz’s various activities to come forward now to the police and
the authorities and let’s see what he has really been doing.  
‘I believe that these disclosures are merely the tip of the iceberg of his sexual transgressions.’ 
As the Labour MP for Leicester East clings to power his constituents are also unhappy.
City cafe owner Sammy Davies said: ‘No one wants him representing us for a moment longer.
‘He’s a dirty, pompous rat and has brought shame on the good name of Leicester’.
Retired
B&Q shop assistant John Worthington, 63, said: ‘I’m ashamed to say
he is my MP. Hopefully not much longer. He cannot stay in power’.
Mark
Jordan wrote: ‘He is dodgy and he has always been dodgy. it is time for
him to go and never be involved in Public life again in any capacity.
Stephen Laycock said: ‘GO NOW VAZ … as a politician you represent NO-ONE !!!’
Theresa May also appeared to take aim at Mr Vaz over the lurid allegations.
Speaking
at the G20 summit in China she said:  ‘I have always been clear
throughout my political career, I think what is important for people is
to feel they’re able to have confidence in politicians. That is what I
think we all have a duty to provide for those who elect us.
‘What Keith does is for Keith, and any decisions he wishes to make are for him.
‘But I think overall what people look for is confidence in their politicians.’  

Upset: More than 1,850 people have joined the P45 for Keith Vaz group on Facebook and have produced these memes based on him calling himself a washing machine salesman and the perilous position he faces as an MP

The
Charity Commission is also facing calls to investigate whether cash
from Mr Vaz’s charity was used to pay for sex with rent boys.
Two
deposits of £150 were paid last month into an account by a man linked
to Silver Star, a diabetes charity set up by the Leicester East MP when
he developed the illness, The Sunday Mirror alleged.

There is no suggestion that the man knew the real purpose of the payments. 
Dr
Malde Modhwadia, a former trustee of Silver Star, told the Mail:
‘Everything is done in accordance with Charity Commission rules. I can
guarantee that nothing illicit or illegal happened, as far as I am
aware.
‘If
he allegedly paid money from Silver Star to the prostitute, that cannot
be correct. Silver Star only pays money with an invoice and when we
know what the money is for, so as far as that matter is concerned, it
can’t be right.’
Referring
to the sex allegations surrounding Mr Vaz, Dr Modhwadia said: ‘I have
nothing to do with his private life. I have known him since he was
elected, we are friendly but I don’t know about these allegations.
‘There
is nothing wrong with being gay but [constituents may feel] he has been
leading a double life. But he’s a good guy, he helps constituents. We
don’t want the charity to be associated with this.’
Asked
about a member of Silver Star staff allegedly paying money into an
account, he said: ‘No, that can’t be true. The clear instruction is, you
can’t pay cash to anybody. Petty cash is also accounted for.
‘If that allegation is true I would be shocked. That would be silly. He had his own money.’
The
Charity Commission said: ‘The Commission has asked journalists to
forward any evidence they have to determine whether there is a
regulatory role for the Commission.’
Mr
Vaz has refused to step down immediately as a Labour MP or from his
position as chairman of the Commons home affairs committee.
He
said he would wait until tomorrow before revealing whether he would
continue in his key role on the panel monitoring crime, migration and
sexual exploitation. And he even blamed the scandal on the Sunday
newspaper that uncovered his hypocrisy and sordid sex life.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn appeared to back Mr Vaz last night, saying: ‘It should be treated as a private matter.
‘He
is going to meet the home affairs committee and discuss with them what
his role will be in the future. I’m not sure what that decision will be
but I leave it to him to decide on that.
‘He hasn’t committed any crime that I know of. As far as I’m aware it is a private matter and I will obviously talk to Keith.’ 
Mr
Vaz, whose political career has been dogged by scandal, has previously
said he is ‘not convinced’ men who pay for sex should be prosecuted.
According to the Sunday Mirror, the 59-year-old politician told two male
prostitutes: ‘We need to get this party started’ as they discussed
unprotected sex.
In
a series of texts reproduced by the newspaper he allegedly asked the
Eastern Europeans to bring poppers – sex-enhancing drugs – to a liaison.
In one meeting with the pair, Mr Vaz is said to have offered to pay for
cocaine if it was brought to a sex party. He stressed he did not want
any himself.
The
rent boys were paid by bank transfer following the session in a
£390,000 flat he owns near his £2.2million family home in Edgware, north
London. There was no answer at his house yesterday. Last night a string
of MPs called on Mr Vaz to step down as committee chairman. Police and
the Charity Commission indicated they would investigate if complaints
were made about his conduct. 
Mr
Vaz failed to adequately explain how he paid almost £400,000 in cash
for his ‘sex flat’. And he faces questions over suggestions that a man
linked to his charity Silver Star was asked to pay money to male
prostitutes on his behalf – allegations that he denies.
According
to the Sunday Mirror, Mr Vaz tried to hide his identity from two male
escorts by claiming to be a washing machine salesman.
Asked
by the men about his job, he reportedly said: ‘These are industrial
washing machines, that I sell. Industrial. For big – for hotels.’ Later
one of the escorts asked Mr Vaz: ‘What’s your name, by the way?’ Mr Vaz
replied: ‘Jim’.

A
senior member of the home affairs committee said Mr Vaz’s position was
untenable: ‘We have oversight of the police and he’s talking about
poppers and cocaine. He can’t stay on.’
In
a statement, Mr Vaz attacked the Sunday Mirror for exposing his sex
life. He said: ‘It is deeply troubling that a national newspaper should
have paid individuals who have acted in this way. I have referred these
allegations to my solicitor Mark Stephens of Howard Kennedy who will
consider them carefully and advise me accordingly. At this time I do not
want there to be any distraction from the important work the home
affairs select committee undertakes so well. I will of course inform
committee members first of my plans when we meet on Tuesday. My decision
has been based entirely on what is in the best interests of the
committee which I have had the privilege of chairing for the last nine
years.’ 
When the scandal broke on Saturday night he had said he would step down as chairman.
Mr
Vaz’s committee produced its first ever report on the legality of
prostitution only this summer. In July, he said: ‘The criminalisation of
sex workers should therefore end.’ The Charity Commission said it was
‘aware of the allegations made regarding an individual linked to the
charity Silver Star’.
Fellow Labour MP Jess Phillips suggested that using prostitutes was ‘sexual exploitation’.
She
tweeted: ‘I don’t give a toss what people do in their private lives, I
do give a toss about sexual exploitation. Nothing funny about today’s
news.’
Disgraced
Labour MP Simon Danczuk, suspended in a scandal caused by him sending
sexually explicit message to a 17-year-old, expressed sympathy for Mr
Vaz.
He told LBC Radio: ‘He’s clearly being struggling with his sexuality. It won’t be easy in terms of his family.’
 
Riddle of the ‘loan’ that let shamed Labour MP Keith Vaz pay £400k cash for luxury ‘sex flat’ 
Keith Vaz last night could not explain exactly how he paid almost £400,000 in cash for his ‘sex flat’.
The
millionaire MP purchased the two-bedroom property earlier this year
without the assistance of a mortgage. Land Registry documents show he is
the sole owner.
The
sparsely-furnished apartment, a ten-minute walk from the £2.2million
five-bedroom house he shares with his wife, was the alleged venue for a
sordid party with two rent boys.

is about to be sold – the family seemed unaware of any sale

Explanation:
Mr Vaz, pictured with his wife Maria holding son Luke, said the loan on
his new flat would be repaid once Mr Vaz’s house on Uppingham Road in
Leicester – which he inherited from his mother Merlyn, right, who died
in 2003
In June, Mr Vaz put down £387,500 in cash to buy the flat – more than four times his £89,951 salary as a senior backbench MP.
Last
night the explanation of how he afforded it begged more questions than
answers. His lawyer Mark Stephens said the property had been bought with
the help of a ‘personal loan’.
Asked if this loan was from a friend, or a bank, Mr Stephens replied it was a ‘traditional lender’.
He
said the loan would be repaid once Mr Vaz’s house on Uppingham Road in
Leicester – which he inherited from his mother who died in 2003 – had
been sold. ‘It has been on the market for three months and has been sold
subject to contract,’ said Mr Stephens.
He said the Labour MP had waited to sell the house, 13 years after his mother died, to get the ‘best price’.
The
Mail spoke to the occupants of the Uppingham Road house, a family who
seemed unaware of any sale. They said they moved in two months ago and
had a one-year tenancy, paying £750 a month via an agency.
When
this was put to Mr Stephens, he said the current occupants were
definitely leaving in three months and there was no agreement in place
for them to stay another 12 months.
The
Mail was unable to find any estate agent that had advertised the
property for sale, and a check of Land Registry documents still show Mr
Vaz as the owner, although it can take several weeks for official
records to be updated. It remains unclear why Mr Vaz opted for a
‘personal loan’ to buy his new apartment in London, rather than a
mortgage.

Neighbours of the new flat, in a block containing 20 apartments built by Barratt, said that they had never seen the MP.
One
said: ‘The flats have only just gone up and they’re pretty expensive so
it’s hard to believe that something like that would happen here.’

A ten-minute walk from the flat, past a Tesco and a McDonald’s, is the Vaz family’s large detached home in Stanmore, Middlesex.
It
is jointly owned by the MP and his wife Maria Fernandes. They purchased
it for £1.15million in 2005 and have a mortgage with First Direct bank.
Mr
Vaz’s complex finances have long been the subject of scrutiny. The
Cambridge-educated socialist once had half a million pounds in the bank,
leading Scotland Yard detectives who probed his finances to suggest the
money was of a ‘suspicious nature’.
Mr Vaz has bought and sold a string of properties in London and his Leicester constituency.
He
has always strenuously denied any wrongdoing and has never faced any
criminal charges over the money, which he said was ‘not suspicious in
any way’ and explained by a house sale and ‘a drawdown of equity’. His
MP’s salary is £74,926 and he receives a £15,025 top-up as a select
committee chairman.
On
the MPs’ register of interests, he declares occasional outside income
from writing newspaper articles or making TV appearances.
In 2012, it emerged he held almost £500,000 in a series of mystery bank accounts.
He had seven or eight mortgages between 1996 and 2001, at one stage juggling arrangements from four different lenders at once. 
In
October 2008, Mr Vaz was alleged to have made mortgage payments
totalling £26,500 – more than seven times higher than his income as a
backbench MP. At the time, when banks typically lent only about three to
four times a buyer’s earnings, this was £45,066 a year, and his wife
ran a small firm of solicitors, reportedly earning an estimated £60,000 a
year.

Scotland
Yard examined seven high street bank accounts belonging to Mr Vaz and
his wife. There is no suggestion that she has ever done anything wrong.
Detectives
found that over a six-year period, almost £500,000 was apparently
deposited in the MP’s accounts – in addition to his salary between 1996
and 2001, which varied from £43,860 to £82,697.
In
one HSBC account, £28,959 in cash was paid in during a single year. One
payment was made into a personal account by Mapesbury Communications
Ltd, a firm run by Mr Vaz’s wife.
In
the MPs’ expenses scandal, exposed in 2009, it emerged Mr Vaz had
‘flipped’ his designated second home from his London flat to his
Leicester constituency office. This was not illegal, but he was asked to
pay back a four-figure sum.
Mr Vaz has always denied doing anything wrong, saying all his finances are above board and explained by property deals. 
 
We need to get this party started: What Keith Vaz told Eastern European rent boys filmed during sex sting 
By Sam Greenhill and Claire Ellicott 
As the rent boys undressed, one asked Keith Vaz: ‘What’s your name, by the way?’
‘Jim’,
replied the chairman of the Commons home affairs committee. He spelt it
out: ‘J-I-M’, telling the young men he was a washing machine salesman.
But the ruse by the MP for Leicester East was pointless because at least one of the escorts already knew his true identity.

And
as the married father of two casually discussed drugs, unprotected sex
and money with the male escorts, their conversation was being secretly
recorded.
Yesterday
the Sunday Mirror published extracts from the extraordinary exchange.
It casts new light on the man whose committee monitors crime,
immigration and drugs policy on behalf of the nation.
Mr Vaz has deplored the ‘dangerous’ cocaine trade, but allegedly offered to buy some for an Eastern European prostitute.
Later he was heard exhorting: ‘We need to get this party started.’
INTIMATE TEXTS AND CASH PAYMENTS
The encounter took place nine days ago, on August 27.
But
according to the newspaper it was not the first time Mr Vaz had met the
pair, who are believed to be Polish. Earlier that month, two cash
deposits of £150 each were allegedly paid into a bank account.
On
August 4, Mr Vaz is said to have texted one of the escorts that he
would send him £100 as a gift. When asked to make it £150, he replied:
‘OK but next time you and [the other man] see me, you better be extra
nice.’
The MP requested bank details and on August 5 a £150 payment was made, with the reference ‘Painting’, said the newspaper.
The
second payment was made on August 24. In a text, Mr Vaz allegedly
discussed setting up a foursome involving the two Poles and a Romanian,
saying: ‘£150 for you, me, bf (boyfriend) and Romanian.’
Then
on August 26, he allegedly texted the rent boy asking him to get
poppers, the legal drug amyl nitrate taken to enhance sex. He texted:
‘Try and pick up some poppers.’
On
the afternoon of August 27, texts between Mr Vaz and one escort were
exchanged to set up the sex party. Suggesting it start at 11pm, Mr Vaz
demanded: ‘I want a good time please.’ The MP went on to ask if a
Romanian rent boy who was supposed to join them liked poppers and
whether he spoke English.

‘I WANT A GOOD TIME, PLEASE’
At
11.30pm on August 27, Mr Vaz met the two male prostitutes at his
£400,000 flat, a ten-minute walk from his family home. Both men were
wearing shorts and T-shirts, and the 59-year-old MP sported black
trousers and a short-sleeved shirt.
He
began by asking them the whereabouts of the Romanian escort. They told
him he had been paid £900 by another customer, to which the MP allegedly
replied: ‘Really? That’s fantastic. I hope he’s giving you some of the
money.’
Mr
Vaz, who famously welcomed Romanian arrivals at Luton airport when the
EU expanded in 2014, asked to see pictures of the escort who has failed
to show up.
The MP then suggested using the mobile phone app Grindr to find someone else.
Grindr
searches for gay men nearby, using mobile phones’ GPS data, and Mr Vaz
wanted to know if there were any other users in the same block as his
apartment. ‘See who’s in the building. There must be someone around
here,’ said the MP.
When
shown the profile of an Asian man, the MP allegedly said: ‘He is fit’,
and on being shown another person’s profile, he said: ‘Oh, he’s nice,
yeah, ask him what he’s doing. Would he like to join a private party?’
Mr Vaz allegedly suggested offering £50 for a Grindr user to take part in a foursome.
Mr
Vaz jokingly called the older of the two escorts ‘a naughty b****r’ and
told the younger one: ‘I feel as if I’m his bank manager. Or his
mother. He treats me very badly.’ He called him the other man’s pimp.
Asked by the elder man what he wanted, the MP allegedly replied: ‘You. I’m getting very horny.’

As
the trio waited for the Romanian, the conversation turned to cocaine.
Mr Vaz, who in 2010 demanded action to combat the ‘dangerous’ cocaine
trade, allegedly offered to pay for some.
The
two escorts had told him the Romanian prostitute liked taking cocaine
during sex. According to the Sunday Mirror, Mr Vaz said there was no
‘coke’ in his flat. The MP said he did not want any of the drug himself.
When
told the Romanian might be able to bring the drug, Mr Vaz said: ‘How
much is it going to be?’ He later added: ‘He can buy and I will give him
the money.’
The
conversation then switched to poppers. In the Commons, Mr Vaz has
argued against a proposed ban on the drug during a debate on the
Psychoactive Substances Bill. Poppers was later removed from the list of
substances to be outlawed by the bill. During the liaison, Mr Vaz was
asked whether he had ever taken poppers and replied: ‘Yeah.’ But he said
he was an infrequent user, but added: ‘I like giving it to people, it
is nice.’
CLAIMS OF UNPROTECTED SEX
As
an MP, Mr Vaz took part in a safe sex campaign in his constituency last
year. But in his flat, he apparently admitted he did not practise what
he preached. He told the male escorts that during another encounter,
with another prostitute they all knew, the man had forgotten to bring a
condom but they had sex anyway.
Asked
how he could be sure the rent boy had not had a sexually transmitted
disease, Mr Vaz replied: ‘I didn’t know.’ He was then asked if he wanted
to use a condom this time, and said: ‘No’.
I’M JIM, A WASHING MACHINE SALESMAN
As matters turned to sex, one of the escorts who was undressing asked Mr Vaz about his work.
Instead of revealing he was the chairman of an influential Commons committee, or an MP, Mr Vaz said he sold washing machines.
He blurted out the pseudonym ‘Jim’ and said the washing machines were industrial size, for hotels to clean towels in bulk.
Then he turned to the younger of the two escorts and said: ‘Take your shirt off. I’m going to attack you.’
After
their 15-minute sexual encounter, Mr Vaz asked the escorts to wash up
their whisky glasses. On their way out, he asked them: ‘You’ve got your
stuff? Got everything you need to take with you?’
The next day, Mr Vaz suggested they meet again, signing off a text message with a ‘smiley face’ emoticon.
