“Labour without Islam is like Michele Obama without an Adam’s Apple.” GV
Office – Member of Parliament for West Lancashire (MEP, West Lancs)
Offenses – Hypocrisy for pushing for legislations keeping fatty foods 0ut of your pantry, while shovelling her fat ugly mug with the same junk on your taxes.
Although I am all for healthy eating-as any TRUE nationalist would be, this pig has some nerve. She is approximately 90kg (200 lbs) and instead of bringing a £0.10 apple with her from home, she splurges on hundreds of £’s on snacks with your tax money while serving YOU in Westminster.
The cheek of claiming doughnuts as an expense!
The Daily Mail reported that,
Labour MP Rosie Cooper is the latest culprit of ridiculous expenses claims after she charged taxpayers for an array of sweets, crisps, cakes, ice creams and doughnuts.
She handed in receipts for items costing as little as 29p for a bag of Hula Hoops, 30p for a white chocolate cookie and 45p for chocolate bar.
The Labour MP from West Lancashire – who is believed to be a size 20+ – even claimed £2.80 for two ice creams from the House of Lords.
Many of the products were purchased from Tesco Extra including 30p for a jam doughnut, 45p for a pack of McCoys crisps, a 35p Bounty bar and a pasta salad for £1.89.
An apple turnover, a chicken wrap, a Coca Cola and a bag of Maltesers set Ms Cooper back £4.32 but was the subject of yet another claim.
Meanwhile a butter croissant, another bag of McCoys crisps, a milkshake, a Cadburys Boost and a BLT sandwich all for £4.51 were also paid for by the taxpayer.
Ms Cooper has previously campaigned for healthy eating in the fight against obesity.
She recently backed the British Heart Foundation’s Food4Thought campaign, aimed at exposing the hidden salt, fat and sugar in common foods.
But Ms Cooper insisted last night that the junk food purchases were made for an unpaid Westminster intern.
The claims were made under the heading ‘Incidental Expenses/Staff Allowance for costs associated with running an office’.
Again, the EKP urge all of our readers to live a healthy lifestyle, however unlike Labour’s Rosie Cooper, we live our lives in a healthy manner-exercising, eating right etc. By the looks of Cooper, she doesn’t.
Rosie’s recently come to an arrangement with a local Imam to build a diversity and Islamic Learning centre (aka Mosque) by 2017 in her West Lancashire district.
The information was given to us by a board member of Preston’s Imam Muhammad Zakariya School, that has sworn to us, that the deal is all but done, if Cooper is re-elected in 2015.
It appears West Lancs “constituency boundary is due to change and several thousand Muslims will be entering the district come 2019.” After all Labour is the “party that best represents Islam,” and will help facilitate Islamist takeover of Britain. See this alarming video if you still have your doubts.
Rosie Cooper, who should be living in West Lancs-after all that’s who she represents, lives in southern England.
Instead she owns homes in London, Liverpool and an office in Ormskirk Lancashire. And that ain’t good enough for the amateur real estate tycoon.
The DM reported that “Ms Cooper has already been criticised for claiming £915 in solicitor fees and survey costs for an investment property she did not buy in Lambeth.
She has also claimed for a steam cleaner worth £117.49, and curtains and cushions for £132, that were used to clean the property.
Her other claims included a TV, a fridge and a washing machine – for a bed worth £1,314 and a three piece suite for £2,098 (limited by the Fees Office to £1,114 and £2,000 respectively).
She claimed £11,324 in stamp duty for the Pimlico property and spent £5,000 on furnishings before embarking on a £16,000 renovation of the flat.
The expenditure of the MP for West Lancashire, who was elected in 2005, rose dramatically in the last days of each financial year, bringing her close to the maximum annual allowance.
Miss Cooper said the work would benefit the public purse. “I have previously stated that any profit realised when the flat is eventually sold will be given to Parliament on behalf of taxpayers,” she said.
Her claims will raise concerns that some MPs spend large sums of taxpayers’ money on relatively modest properties in an apparent attempt to “use up” their maximum entitlements.

On March 31, 2006, Miss Cooper paid £11,324 in stamp duty and legal fees on her flat in Pimlico. Land registry records state that she paid £330,000 for the flat in July 2006.
Other purchases claimed on the last day of that financial year were a steam cleaner, curtains and picture frames.
On March 26, she bought a bed for £1,314 and a three-piece suite for £2,098. The fees office paid out £1,114 and £2,000, respectively.
At the end of the next financial year, Miss Cooper made several claims. She paid a £5,000 deposit to a builder on March 30, 2007, for work on a new kitchen and new bathroom. The quote for work on the kitchen and the bathroom came to £16,903.
Miss Cooper said that only the first £5,000 was covered by the second home allowance and that she had paid £12,654 towards the work. She added that the flat had an old kitchen and was “in poor condition” when she bought it.
The day after she had paid the deposit to the builder, Miss Cooper bought a television from John Lewis for £899 – the figure was reduced by the fees office to £750 – and claimed an extra £35 for its delivery. The sale was completed at 6.50pm.
She also claimed for a fridge (£199) and an AEG washing machine (£349) from John Lewis on the same day. Delivery and disposal charges were an extra £50.
In total, Miss Cooper, the ministerial aide to Ben Bradshaw, the health minister, claimed £65,465 in three years.
She said she claimed the second home allowance for “one off costs for fixed or big ticket items which are easily identifiable and which can be returned to Parliament or a local charity should Parliament not want them.”
The former councillor from Liverpool was elected to Parliament at her fifth attempt. She had previously stood as a Liberal Democrat candidate.
She attracted controversy in 2006 after writing to Downing Street to seek “an assurance” that Baroness Thatcher would not be considered for a state funeral.
Miss Cooper said that she would pay capital gains tax on any profit from her flat and added: “The original flat purchase fell through and those costs were only incurred because, as a newly elected MP from the North West, I needed accommodation in London to do my work representing the people of west Lancashire.”
