SHAMELESS: Labour Candidate Withdraws After Benefit Overclaiming Exposed
by Neo-Guido

They don’t call it the party of benefits for nowt. Hanna Toms, the Labour candidate for Truro, has withdrawn from the race after it emerged she had ‘inadvertently’ over-claimed her benefits:

“In the last few months, I was contacted concerning an issue with Housing Benefit I had been receiving. After co-operating fully to clarify my entitlement, I was advised that I had been overpaid Housing and related benefits. This came as a great shock. The problem arose because I was under the impression that as I had advised HMRC of my changes in income, that information would then be passed on to the council. I was wrong. I fully accept that it was my responsibility to have advised the council of any change in circumstances and I failed to do this.”

She says she’s paid it all back, but is stepping to spend more time down the jobby…
