Rosie’s Sound-Proofed Bedroom on Expenses

Today Guido learnt that the Minister for Work and Pensions, Rosie Winterton, claimed close to the maximum allowance for second homes – including soundproofing her bedroom. The MP, John Prescott’s former mistress, claimed for the work in February 2007, before the fees office reduced the payment to £3,800 after refusing to pay for the use of acoustic felt and wool slabs.

The full claim was for ‘soundproofing of bedroom wall and redecoration to bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen, staircase’.  What is she was so keen on us not hearing about?

        what about a piece on the excellent process of the israel palestine negotiations?
        President Obama has told israel to stop breaking international law and stop building on occupied palestine.
        the american taxpayer cannot afford to continue to fund israeli war crimes and the President can very easily reduce the supply of arms to israel because he is the arms dealer who supplies them.

      Anything that makes me think of John Prescott’s bottom cheeks is a bad thing. And yet they have been in the news so much recently; first the broken toilet seats, now this. I reckon that Gordon Brown finds the courage to keep going because he has seen John Prescott in the nude, and after that there is nothing in politics that can shock him any more. Perhaps it’s a New Labour initiation rite. All prospective front benchers are forced to look at John Prescott in the nude. Those that that turn away are rejected. The few that can stomach or indeed embrace the horror are picked, because only they have the courage to make tough decisions.

        jgm2 says:

        Labour? Make tough decisions? When they could just glibly pretend there is nothing wrong and print 200bn quid we don’t have every year in perpetuity?

        I bet that was a tough decision for the economic Titan of Africa, Robert Gabrial Mugabe too.

        Hmmm, piss off the voters and tell them the truth or pretend that you’ve been ‘forced’ to take these ‘tough decisions’ to pretend you know what the fuck you’re doing and just print money?

        It would be a ‘tough decision’ for anybody with a conscience – printing money. It would mean there really was no alternative. But there is a very simple alternative. The government must live within its means like the rest of us have to.

        Simple. But a ‘tough decision’ for a government whose popularity (before it evaporated) depended entirely on pissing exponential amounts of borrowed money into the economy.

        • 232
          Cigar Smoking Man says:

          The tough decision was not to print the money, but whether they would need to start trying (and in all probability failing) to pull it back in before the next GE.

        I think you are almost correct but not complete in your description. Prospectives are instructed to sniff the crack when Prezza turns round. It’s a trick though, as those that do sniff The Humber Crack are dumped, for they don’t know shit from shit.

      That’s why the big pig Prescott had bulimia. He used to chuck up after eating her out. Apparently she has staggering VO (her box smells like a box of rotting fish heads on a heap of cat shit).

      It says on Wiki she presided over the introduction of the new NHS dental contract. In other words – the poor get no dental treatment and have to knock their own rotten teeth out with hammers, while dentists get £250,000 a year for stabbing patients in the face and while fucked up on coke.

      What an evil bitch. I hope she goes down to China Town.

      First, the weak piggies who have strayed from the pack need to be picked off by the media hyenas.

      Once they have resigned their expense claims then become the standard by which all other MPs will be judged.

      More weak piggies will be targeted pushing the level higher and higher.

      Any MPs whose standards fall below these and cling on will be seen as dishonourable and local party and media will finish them off – including Miss Piggy Jackboots.

Prescott then has to peddle his line to some other amenable woman.

      Tricky Dicky says:

      Yes, the Indie doesn’t get it does it? The problems we have in this country at the moment are in large problem caused by the troughing of our MPs. Let me explain. It isn’t the taxpayers dosh they have scammed – in terms of total public expenditure, it is peanuts. It is because of two reasons – one is that the Executive has bought off the MPs with a goody bag of expenses and allowances, so they do not properly hold the Executive to account (as has been amply seen these last 12 years, where Parliament has been a virtual irrelevance) and another is that it has encouraged the piggy ways of everyone in Government – a few billion here a few billion there – “investment” Brown calls it, when much of it is simply “squandering” on consultants, failed IT systems and petty bureaucrats who don’t add a knats arse to the quality of life in this country (Diversity Councillor anyone?).

      That is the simple truth of it. We need a Parliament which is responsive to what the people demand – value for money, good frontline services and zero net immigration!

        Much of this legislation can only have been PAID FOR.

        That’s a strong accusation, but who doesn’t believe that this Government has been for sale since 1997, right to its rotten core?

    ALL, if there was any honour in public life, would have resigned. That they have not. That they have just carried on regardless shows a complete disregard to the people. Not only have they fleeced us, not only have they ignored their socialist ‘beliefs’ (if they had any) They have and are holding up two fingers, indeed the two finger salute on one hand and the one finger salute with the other!

    We have got to rid ourselves of all these politicians and the rest of the moneygrabbing crooks.

    We must also demand that the new government orders SEQUESTRATION of all property (building, furniture etc.) purchased with public money OR an invoice sent to each individual for the total amount to be paid back. We have got to ensure that not one of these crooks walks away with a smile on their faces!

He sent Harman who after mouthing the mantra “If any MP has been found to have broken the rules” before Susanna Reid laid into her regarding Blears and then Charlie Stayt read her an E Mail from a viewer basically saying that Harman was talking bollocks and that what MP were doing may well be within the rules but it was morally indefensible.Harman looked like a “goldfish” and was obviously struggling and kept going on about “MPs must also show ‘good judgement’ etc etc and that whilst they may still remain in the Labour Party the electorate would ultimately decide their fate “- goodbye Hazel then ! Harman no doubt thinking about whether she showed ‘good judgement’ in agreeing to appear – she obviosuly thought that Stayt & Reid normally good Labour supporting types would be going easy on her – sorry Harriett the rules have been re-written it seems !

        2. As we all know, the BBC have been very ‘selective’ in their reporting – really pisses me off that they are reporting certain bits and slag off the Telegraph over the main principle.

Perhaps he’s not too well today and needs to stay in the Bunker orchestrating more Tory sleaze stories with his new friends – the Barclay Brothers!!

      BBC was bigging up Bananaman, Foreign Agent Miliband, on Toady this morning – up against Hague. Millipede’s opening remarks were so fatuously of student hegelian-marxist type twaddle that I almost strangled the cat. Having got over that, I noticed the sound balance was odd – whenever Hague was speaking, the sound was subtly but distinctly quieter; when Davis or Millipede were speaking, their voices were louder. The effect of course being to make Hague appear as feebler, less worthy of the listener’s attention.

      If I were in Tory HQ I would keep an ear out for more of these BBC “off-days”. This type of bias is crass, gross, and not subjective.

      Hang on in there. The expenses scandal is the symbol of all they do wrong, not a thing apart. It is just the most visible, now. For instance, Moran’s dry-rot fiddling was nothing as compared to the kozy konsultancy Kwango which she set up to pay her to do her own PR on the taxpayer, but it is harder to show how that was done on the back of a beer mat. It is not just a pimple; it is a lesion which shows the pox running through the body politic.

    Troughtastic says:

    A LONDON MP was caught in a new expenses row today over using taxpayers’ cash to fund her constituency party.

    An Evening Standard investigation has found that Barking MP Margaret Hodge has let her local Labour party use half of the two-storey building she rents in the constituency.

    Ms Hodge used public funds totalling more than £60,000 to rent and equip 102 North Street in the town centre. The first floor is Ms Hodge’s constituency office, where she and her staff deal with casework and constituency issues, the purpose for which the allowance was designed. But the ground floor has become the headquarters of Barking Constituency Labour Party, which never had a base of its own until Ms Hodge provided one.

    The phone number given for Barking Labour Party in the Yell.com directory enquiry service is the same as Ms Hodge’s constituency advice line. The phone bill on this number is paid by the taxpayer.

    The MP has had the property for about three and a half years. The landlord, Barking council, confirmed that she is the sole tenant and the rent is paid out of her parliamentary office costs allowance.

    A council spokesman said: “The amount is paid to us directly by the Commons Fees Office.”

    RavingMad says:

    You know, all this continued information about how MPs have misused the system ie mispent OUR money, is fascinating. But there is a pattern emerging that gives us cause for concern.

    1. There is nobody with leadership qualities at the top of current political life. No party leader has demonstrated an ability to deal with this crisis adequately. Errant MPs are still getting away with murder by not resigning, merely ‘standing down’ at the next election. This is not good enough because it enables them to continue troughing.

    2.No MP appears to be learning anything from the process of exposure because they are still coming up with excuses all the time. Bill Cash is claiming he’s done nothing wrong. Some 200 MPs have had their claims examined and they still don’t get it do they? They still think they have a ‘right’ to do what they are doing.

    3. The most alarming of all for me is the fact that there is NOTHING the population can do to change things. The people have no power whatsoever – other than blog and write letters – to stop all of this fraud and change the system, getting rid of the criminals and re-developing an interest in the welfare of the country. The current MPs trying to correct a bad system, one they all signed up to, is an anachronysm. They cannot do it. The people shouldn’t accept it, rather there should be a fresh start. But in the UK there is nio means by which the people can express their wishes. This is what we should be concentrating on now – and changing things!

For example if they are not picked on by the main steam press.. you can bet your bottom dollar that their opponents at the next GE will be pouring over their receipts.

      MP’s cannot do ANYTHING about the situation because they have taken the money and the evidence is in the hands of an organisation that will not be corrupted, at least on this story. So wait they do.

      The Leadership issue is being handled approproately……. again there is nothing any of them can do because they partook in HOOKY claims themselves. So they waste and use time to get the issue out of the public mind…… but there is the trouble……. the publice will not forget this one at all.

    I would hazzard a guess that Bill Cash (very unfortunate name) has not got long left in the house of commons. It won’t be long before the Sunday redtops get his daughter Laetitia’s (very apt name) boyfriends to reveal exactly what went on in his flat.

      Laying concrete caravan standings on Surrey wasteland?

      Asphalting driveways?

      Living in a teepee?

    Bill Cash is old school. How’s this for an elegant way to say fuck-off?

    Asked why he lived in clubs rather than his own flat, he said: “I just didn’t and that’s all there is to it. I was nomadic at the time. It was around the time I was moving between two places and I was moving around.” ….

    Class will out, you see.

      Indigo says:

      Cash is such a pseud. Nomads are nomadic because they have to search for food and pasture every day, unlike Bill Cash. I doubt, too, that the sybaritic Cash would find being nomadic so romantic if he had to lead the real nomadic life, moving his smelly yurt every few days or sharing his living accommodation with a camel or goats and, like the Inuit, prepare animal hides by chewing them.

    I used to despise Heat magazine but now I can see the fun in following the small doings of unpleasant people. Personally I am quite happy to pay for Rosie’s bathroom tiles – a bit ‘off the wall’ perhaps, but we can’t have the poor woman living in squalor. When the Government wants to spent £300 billion on a bank that doesn’t work, or £20 billion on an IT system that doesn’t work, I happily send them a cheque (after all, money grows on trees), so a splash of magnolia paint isn’t going to hurt.

      Sir William

      You have accidentally hit on a niche market for a new magazine……. “Political Heat” Why allow all these Luvvie types all the fun. A Political Heat TV channel (perhaps adverts on the Parliament Channel directing to the latest on the PH Channel) would cover all the gossip and news that will shock.

      With the advent of all receipts being published…. there is ample opportunity for investigative hacks to uncover the sex, sleaze and scandal…. and if it all goes “quiet” then they can resort to just making it up !!!!!!!! Brilliant, can’t wait. Who do I pay my subs to Sky?

    Flemingcrag says:

    The most successful soudproofing has been the one thrown around this incompetent Government by the Fourth Esate, they have all demonstrated zero investigaive journalistic zeal, prefering to feed their headlines each day from a succession of Labour spin merchants, each one more poisonous than the previous (Campbell/Whelan/McBride and you can include Maguire) and all to an agenda, this one;
    During the 12 years of Labour rule the rich have got richer like never before and politicians at Westminster/Devolved Assemblies/Councils and Quangos have trousered the taxpayers’ money like never before.
    Whilst this has been happening the infrastructures of the Country, Hospitals/ Roads/ Raliways and Defence have never been more poorly run nor given of such poor quality service (people are afraid to go into hospital lest they come out with something worse than that which they went in with).
    All this to the backdrop of the poor geting poorer and the middle class being reduced to penury through higher taxes and still the majority of the Fourth Estate support this Government.
    All of us must ask ourselves why? The answer is bound to take us onto the streets where the “state police” will undoubtably bring orderly control by busting our heads, remember the G20.

    If she was Prescotts lover she probably was embarrassed at the diea of the neighbours hearing him grunting like a big fat pig.

    What I can’t understand is, why the Labour thieves didn’t go into the Star Chamber and say to their inquisitors, “If I am found guilty of any misdemeanor, I will do the decent thing and resign as an MP immediately.”

    There is no way Gordon Brown would then get rid of them. The threat of a by-election would save their miserable lives. From our point of view, it would just increase public anger.

    The rhythmic slapping of Prescott’s bellies against Rosie’s posterior, and his piglike grunts and bellows, were all too much for the neighbours.

Kevin Maguire on the less than electrifying Ed Miliband…

“I bet if you went into a pub tonight and started a conversation about ­politics you’d hear strong opinions. David Cameron would be out of touch and Nick Clegg despised while Nigel Farage would divide people sharply. Miliband? In a lot of boozers he’d be the fourth most interesting man in British politics.”
