The MP's are outdoing each other with outlandish expense claims at the moment. I wont bother linking any stories because quite frankly there's so many of them! To call in Plod over the affair was at face value a good move BUT they've been called in to find out who leaked the info not probe the blatant fraud going on...unbelievable. Two quotes that caught my eye... "what I donâ€™t want is for people to feel that all MPs are corrupt and the system is rotten.â€...Harriet Harman. Bit late love.. :roll: "The rules themselves are set by MPs â€“ so this has probably all been approved â€“ but the reality is this doesnâ€™t wash down the pub.â€ Norman Baker (Lib Dem)......No shit Sherlock... Trouble is what ever party you look at there all at it. Get rid of the lot of them and lets start again. This second homes allowance, what's that all about? The MP's justify it because they have to be away from home. Diddums, for living away from home and being at your place of work read "Living on-board or living on camp" Dont see many Forces personnel getting an allowance for doing that. In fact they have to pay for the privilege out of their wages. Imagine the conversation if they didn't.... Down the Grot, 42 CDO.. "'ere smudge, just been lookin through this John Lewis list" "What you on about Chalky?" "Well mate, I was wondering if we should claim for these thermal lined silk green curtains or get the red spiderman ones instead?" "Fcuk knows mate, just get some that will block the sun from going on our 40" flatscreen telly" "OK Smudge will do, we've still got some porn allowance left by the way..." The whole situation is ludicrous but no one can do anything about it.
