Peter Robinson started this petition to Alun cairns MP.

Alun Cairns, the former Secretary of State for Wales has recently come under criticism for continuing to support a candidate who had been accused of deliberately sabotaging a rape trial. He has stood down from his cabinet position but still intends to defend his seat in the vale.

This is not the first controversy Alun has found himself embroiled in, from using racist language on BBC radio to claiming expenses for a second home in Cardiff when his main residence was in Bridgend. From having the highest expenses claims of any MP in Wales to claiming food banks are used by “drug addicts and those unable to manage their money”, Alun has never been far from criticism yet has somehow held onto his seat so far.

It is expected that Alun will now lose his seat but that isn’t why I’m starting this petition. I’ve recently discovered that every MP who loses their seat is entitled to two months salary, net of tax and national insurance contributions, this is of course funded by the taxpayer and is intended to enable the recipient to adjust to a normal way of life again. This can total around £22,000.

I’m proposing that Alun agrees that if and when he loses his seat in the vale, he should pledge to donate that fee to either the Vale Foodbank or a rape survivors charity of his choice, a combination of the two would also be most welcome. I believe the public has funded his lifestyle for long enough and there is very little prospect of Alun having to use the Foodbank in the event he misses out on claiming this money. I would like your support to make Alun aware of this proposal as he has failed to reply to my suggestion by email thus far.
