"THE Scottish National party has accused Strathclyde police of failing to investigate fully allegations of fraud against Wendy Alexander, the Scottish Labour leader. Christine Grahame, the Nationalist MSP, has written to Stephen House, the force's chief constable, describing its six-week inquiry, in which key witnesses were not interviewed and financial records not examined, as a “whitewash”. She has also demanded an investigation by the police complaints commissioner. Police were asked to investigate claims that Alexander's supporters fraudulently raised £12,000 at two dinners, cash that was later spent on her 2003 election campaign."

Last word to the Police, "A spokeswoman for Strathclyde said it had concluded its investigations: “No evidence of fraudulent activity has been found and the matter is no longer under investigation by this force.”

Maybe we should get Trading Standards involved given that at the very least people were mis-sold tickets for the event? They would probably jump at the chance.
