Thanks to the Daily Telegraph and the “whistleblower”, who should be put forward for a knighthood, the revelations about British MP’s expenses has been going on now for well over a month with no signs of abating.
Last week we got the log awaited official release of MP’s expense’s claims….Which only really consisted of a mass of black ink…This was really the last straw for reporters and the British electorate….How the MP’s thought that they would be able to “walk away” from all this beggars belief…..Here are some of the “petty claims” the buggers put in……Don’t forget that Ministers are earning £161,000 and ordinary MP’s are earning £64,000 without expenses……Yet have got the bloody barefaced cheek to claim for:
50p carrier bag from Ikea, 75p for two scotch eggs and £1.79 for five mini pork pies, £2.50 for a Kit Kat from the minibar of the Sherlock Holmes Hotel, £1.31 for a jar of jellied eels, £3 93 for eight sachets of mulled wine, £4.47 for pet food, £14.99 for a shoebox, £255 for 17 silk cushions, 39p for a single paper clip, £7.99 on a book called "Reasons to be Cheerful", 38p Muller Crunch Corner yogurt and £1.06 for a pizza from Asda
…….and so the list goes on and on, and on, and on.
How the buggers thought that they had the right to claim and get away with all these frivolous expense claim beggars belief but also….which is more important…..THE CONTEMPT WITH WHICH THEY THOUGHT OF THE ELECTORATE.
