If you see any good expenses spots link to them in the comments and Guido will highlight them here all day:
Paul Waugh notes George Osborne had us pay £47 for a DVD of his speech on “Value for Money”.
James Arbuthnot thinks it wholly necessary for us to pay £138 for a “chainsaw for logs”. Massacre him at the general election.
Terry Rooney claims off us £125 pcm for “cleaning” and his landlord bills him for cleaning too. No receipt was required for the cleaner because it is was below £250. He cleaned up.
Julia Goldsworthy made us pay £734.30 for her Meniscus “rent” under incidental expenses. What is that about?
Doug Henderson claimed for tax advice from the taxpayers and claims frequently for the maximum amount for food.
Alan Duncan takes £250 petty cash each and every month without any justification. Because he could.
Lembit Opik claimed £19.99 for the “Mother of All Wigs” – justified apparently as a sundry cost “incurred while supporting a Charitable Event”. It actually appears that we taxpayers supported it with cash Lembit.
Did Jim Devine MP really claim £938 for a Mink coloured suite? He could have just made it up like his electrical bills.
UPDATE : There is just so much troughing that it is impossible to do it all justice…
