Jared Omara MP ..

nikki-red

We understand that this is an emotive subject, and discussing the facts is totally fine.
Posting insults is not.
Jared is local to us, and could well be a member of the forum, we dont allow name calling and insults on other threads and they arent acceptable on this one either.

No diversion. You have conveniently failed to understand or acknowledge that there are two different issues here.

 

Jared O’Mara appears to have failed miserably as an MP.  If Gareth Arnold believes that J O’M is as bad as he claims, then of course he should resign. (Although that begs the question, “why go to work for him in the first place?). The general consensus from things I have read show J O’M in a pretty poor light. I’ve no reason to doubt that, although I don’t know him and have never seen him in action.

 

Similarly, I don’t know Gareth Arnold, but I do have clear evidence of how he has behaved in this case. Instead of just resigning, he has used his position of power to attack and ridicule J O’M. If you don’t think that’s bullying, I’d like to know what you think it is.

 

I think GA’s actions are bad. I’ve not excused J O’M or diverted away from his faults. The point is that J O’M’s failings in no way justify GA’s actions, despite your attempts to excuse him, by banging on about J O’M’s faults.

Are you suggesting he knew what he was like before he worked for him?

Yet again he will be taking more time out to recover from an illness that he will never recover from whilst he is an MP.

 

 

Didn't he take several months for similar reasons when all his previous history came out??  Now once again he's in the papers for all the wrong reasons and he's taking more time off.

Hmmm... :huh:


Well, anyone a tad more cynical than myself could almost be forgiven for thinking that the whole charade has been stage-managed so that both Mr Omara and his sidekick can have a nice summer break without any hassle from those nasty constituent types.

 

I suppose we'll find out if after a few weeks, Mr Sidekick has been totally forgiven for his public resignation and reinstated in his old role on full pay... :suspect:

So that you can relax and concentrate on your recuperation without stress, resign immediately Jared.

As much as it makes logical sense it's an elaborate way to book time off work i'd imagine! :D

To be able to take time out from something, you got to be actually doing something in the first place.  I see very little evidence that Mr O'Mara has been an acting MP. 

 

As pointed out by in the Look North report last night, while Mr O'Mara takes time out he has a number of constituents who are pressing him for help with immigration issues; others concerned about their housing issues & others struggling to find help sorting out their benefit issues. 

 

Meanwhile while he takes his time out, Mr O'Mara's still picking up nearly £80k per year.

Why doesn’t he just do everyone and, above all, himself a favour and resign?!

Would you for 80k a year?

 

yes probably is the answer.

 

but not everyone would.

 

Case in hand.

Actually he gets £77,379 a year, not quite £80k, but very close.

   

I'm sure it's not in any way a consideration (?), but if he loses the seat in a general election he's entitled to the equivalent of severance pay, and for his staff. Like most things to do with expenses at Westminster it's a bit opaque. It doesn't look likely to be a fortune.

 

From Wikipedia;

Resettlement Grant

The Resettlement Grant motherhood is the name given to the MPs' severance pay package. It may be claimed to help former MPs with the costs of adjusting to life outside parliament. It is payable to any Member who ceases to be an MP at a general election. The amount is based on age and length of service, and varies between 50% and 100% of the annual salary payable to a Member of Parliament at the time of the dissolution.[2]

In the UK the first £30,000 of severance pay is tax-free. As stated above, the amount retiring MPs, or those who lose their seats receive, depends on how old they are and how long they have served in the House. For example, an MP who stays in office for one term (say 5 years) and then leaves office will currently receive tax-free severance pay of 50% of their current salary, or £32,383 at current rates – equivalent to an annual salary increment of over £12,000 at current tax rates and pay scales.[25]

For the 2010–2015 Parliament, only MPs defeated in their attempt to be re-elected will get one month’s salary for each year served, up to a maximum of six months or over £33,000. From the start of the 2015 Parliament, it will be replaced by a "Loss of Office Payment", at double the statutory redundancy payment. "For the 'average' MP, who leaves office with 11 years' service, this may lead to a payment of around £14,850."[26]

Winding-up Allowance

There is also up to £42,000 on offer to pay for winding up staff contracts and office rent.[27] An allowance of up to one third of the annual Office Costs Allowance was paid for the reimbursement of the cost of any work on parliamentary business undertaken on behalf of a deceased, defeated or retiring member after the date of cessation of membership. On 5 July 2001 the House agreed to change the allowance to one third of the sum of the staffing provision and Incidental Expenses Allowance in force at the time of cessation of membership.[28]

do they need receipts for the winding up allowance

 

were it not for the fact that there is likely to be a general election why wait for him to resign why not go down to route of a recall petition

You can only start a recall petition if they've actually done something wrong, for example being convicted of a crime but serving less than a year inside.

 

Being generally crap and/or not a very nice person isn't grounds for a recall petition.
