Statement on 2015 Election Expenses

There is an ongoing police investigation and as such I would prefer not to comment directly on that as it has yet to be concluded other than to say I know I have done nothing wrong and I acted honestly and properly throughout my election campaign, as did, very importantly, my Election Agent.

I have been happy to co-operate with the local police investigation, but am exasperated by the partisan and inconsistent actions and announcements by the Electoral Commission who should be politically neutral but are clearly and obviously far from that.
