I have written several articles with regard to Derek Wyatt MP none have been published so can I ask through your paper the following questions as Mr Wyatt MP no longer responds to my emails or letters
1) Mr Wyatt had admitted to spending "four nights a week" in his "flat near Westminster". Parliamentary rules say that the accommodation in which an MP spends the majority of his time must be considered his "main" home, against which no allowances can be claimed. 4 nights out of 7 is a majority in anybody's book so why is he claiming expenses against his "main" home.
2) Mr Wyatt says that he "spends every Friday in the Sittingbourne & Sheppey area". This infers that he no longer actually lives in the constituency, and that is backed up by the fact that his name does not appear on the electoral register for Sittingbourne & Sheppey. If he does NOT live in the constituency, why does he continue to claim a second home allowance, since this was designed to help those MPs who had to maintain a home both in their constituency and London?
3) If Mr Wyatt does have another home, other than his London flat, where is it located and why will he not tell?
4) If Mr Wyatt no longer lives in the constituency why should the people of Sittingbourne & Sheppey vote for a man who no longer chooses to live amongst them?
