Expenses MP’s Son: Media Twisted Truth

Back during the expenses scandal it was revealed that Labour MP John Healey helped himself to £1,500 to replace his front door, £7,000 for a brand new set of windows and over £400 for two televisions. That’s not to mention the £88,000 profit he made from selling the flat he renovated with taxpayers’ money. Now Healey’s son Alex has done a Bercow, slamming the media for reporting the truth on Reddit:

The press can be so unfair…

    “Do you really think the money went into our pocket”

    No I don’t. Probably your Swiss bank account instead.

    Is he saying the 88K profit they made didn’t go into their pocket?

    I have heard a rumour that Mr Speaker uses a tax loop hole not used by any other MPs, by wearing childrens clothes he avoid the VAT.

    I demand a creche led enquiry into this.

    Presumably. It is just that the taxpayer has not been compensated yet by him, nor ever will be. Because you never have to say sorry and, if you do, you don’t have to return any money. Ever.

    Where DID the £88k go then?

    Paying crack dealers’ rent? Funding Diversity Manager posts? Paying QCs to ensure foreign rapists aren’t deported?

    Nope – only taxpayers foot the bill for things like that. A Labour MP’s “emoluments” are far too valuable to be squandered in such a ridiculously cavalier way.

    Need to call out the National Guard to stop racial discrimination.

    Ha ha, son. It cleans carburettors and fuel system, reduces exhaust emissions, restores performance and increases fuel economy, mate.

    Of course the money didn’t go in their pockets.

    But the goods remained in their possession.

    Perhaps alex would enlighten us as to where the £88,000 went in that case ?
    Presumably he will claim it went into a bank account, under the matress , or was rolled over in another property speculation and therefore didn’t go ‘into our pocket’ – note the use of the plural, taxpayers funds’ peculation, a game for all the family.

    ” ‘Lien’-ing, ‘lien’-ing, safe and secure from all alarms…”

    You’d think that, if there’s money paid from taxpayer funds, there would be some sort of cloud on the title and that he could not just pocket ALL of the money representing the appreciation on the housing unit as part of his equity upon sale, only that part above and beyond the taxpayer money. If there is no such encumbrance, why not? Am I missing something here?

    I mean, they’re all thieving sunzabitches, we know that, but who’s in charge of seeing to it that the larceny is kept down to an acceptable level?

    The tw*t son can’t even write correct English, repeatedly confusing plural and singular – let alone not knowing where to put an apostrophe.

    Breathtaking. This family profited from scamming the taxpayer whilst the MP voted to sabotage the British economy.

    He should be thanking people, not bickering with them.

    Also in the discussion:

    What was your experience of the expenses scandal? Was he summoned to pay anything back and did it have any affect on him and his popularity as a politician?

    Alex:

    He didnt have to pay anything back. And it effected him greatly. His personal popularity wasnt to dampened but the overall opinions of MPs was destroyed. They wont recover for a long time…

    Yes, I do believe the money went in your pocket. And out of mine.

    *Yes of course, at least 105 MPs – should have done time (not the 5 that did) there was loads of evidence against them…..and they wonder why the public think they are a joke and sneer at them. (rather like estate agents) Whippersnapper2.*

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
