    Default Fraud Act 2006

    “Fraud by false representation" is defined by Section 2 of the Act as a case where a person makes "any representation as to fact or law ... express or implied" which they know to be untrue or misleading.

    "Fraud by failing to disclose information" is defined by Section 3 of the Act as a case where a person fails to disclose any information to a third party when they are under a legal duty to disclose such information.

    "Fraud by abuse of position" is defined by Section 4 of the Act as a case where a person occupies a position where they are expected to safeguard the financial interests of another person, and abuses that position; this includes cases where the abuse consisted of an omission rather than an overt act.”

    How many MPs did not commit fraud?

    There is also fiduciary or more accurately breach of fiduciary duty. It applies to every person in a relationship or agreement, particularly company directors, civil servants and MPs.

    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    I’d ok with jailing 99.9% of MPs for fraud.

    Presumably he'd spare one of Dominic Grieve's testicles...
