Is Denis MacShane considering a moonlight flit?

It was interesting to note whipless Labour MP Denis MacShane tabled the following question in the House of Commons:

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether Ministers of foreign governments have immunity from arrest during visits to the UK.

Could EUfanatic MacShane be considering all possibilities for securing diplomatic immunity to avoid prosecution in the UK for claiming £125,000 in office costs for this?

    Hmmm. Given the one good thing about MacShane, his frequent defence of Israel, it might have had more to do with that context.

    Undoubtedly. I’m in a mischievous mood today Peter ;)

    Ahh McShame… One of the more odious of our political masters, if that is possible.

    I reckon the chances are that he will wriggle out of the charges brought against him, and live to fight another day with his special brand of mammon.
