Exclusive: Cash-in-Hand
Tory Trougher’s Two Fingers to the Taxpayer

Bill Cash has form for dodgy expenses. Last time round the Staffordshire MP was denounced by David Cameron for claiming over £15,000 to pay his daughter rent for her London flat, so it’s no surprise that Guido has caught him at it again. Millionaire Cash lives in a massive country house in Shropshire, one the biggest houses owned by anybody in the Commons. According to the Register of Members’ Interests he also has a share in a Pimlico property that he receives rental income for. Despite all this Cash has just started renting a new flat in London, charging the taxpayer for his rent on expenses. In April alone he asked taxpayers for over £2,000.

Dave told him last time round that he was on thin ice. Now Cash has crashed through.

Why does one of the richest men in Parliament need to bill the taxpayer for rent when he already owns a house in London and another mansion in Shropshire?

With his über-safe 13,000 majority he’s able to take liberties. And your cash to pay his bills.

    The maximum an M.P. can claim in rent per year is £20k (£1,666 per month), so keep an eye on that one…

    tapestory says:

    Those rooves need a bit of repairing. A big country house costs about £2000 a month for maintenance. Cash isn’t on the inside and won’t get the kind of payoff Jeremy Hunt will for leaving the BT monopoly intact, as will Maria Miller, the new Communications secretary. They’ll pick up salaries £250,000 plus as Directors once they leave office as a little tip. That will cost us all billions. Get after the big money, Guido.

    Ex-Tory says:

    Why should a MP not claim for rent on the basis he has more money than other MPs who are claiming rent? If I travel for work, why should I not be able to claim for my hotel and my colleague can, just because I have spent the last 20yrs living a frugal life so I can afford a nicer house than him?

    Sandra in Accounts says:

    The MPs prosecuted last time were just token gestures.

    Now we need mass public trials – 10 of the fuckers at a time in the court of public opinion.

    I swear that the only way these bastards in the political class / political elite will start respecting the people again is after we have loaded up the lampposts around that stinking trough called Westminster.

    This is getting serious. Someone is going to get hurt.

    greedy shite says:

    Is it any wonder the troughing oul fucker wont leave the Conservative Party, despite decades of them betraying the country over Europe. There’s just too much money at stake for Cash to put his principles before his expenses claims.

    McShane and Cash side by side.

    Why do we need 650 pigs in the trough when the EU makes 80% of our laws? Westminster is an expensive tourist attraction filled with criminals.

    David Cameron addresses his Plebs says:

    Look, can we please just keep all this Britain’s looted by the elite and totally fucked shite together for two more years, until we get the indigenous plebs embroiled and dying in another war for Israel in the Middle East next year, and I retire in 2014 to take $100m/yr from JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs, like my hero and fellow blackmailed bender, Lord Anthony Blair.

    But as IPSA have said , it’s all strictly kosher. Wether it’s morally or ethically kosher is another debate.

    Cash and the rest of that shower of sumbags and troughers are demonstrating that they have no honour.

    Orff with their heads.

    Scary Biscuits says:

    Guido, you’ve got this wrong. If somebody provides a service for somebody else they are entitled to charge for the said services. How rich they are already doesn’t come into it.

    If you don’t like MPs being able to charge for a flat in London, say so. But you’re not. If you don’t like MPs being paid at all, say so. But you’re not.

    So what exactly are you claiming? That a rich person got paid? That’s not sound; it’s communism. Obviously working for the Mirror has affected your judgement. Property isn’t theft. Theft is theft. Go and find a real scandal. There are plenty out there.

    David Cameron addresses his Plebs says:

    Yeah, yeah……MPs…..expenses…..yeah, yeah, directed at all the thick readers, but Guido is now pushing for redistributive taxing on the wealthy. Next, he will be demanding people should be paid relative to their persoanl wealth, not what they do. Extreme socialism. But, lets not use our brains, just play to the gallery.

    Jonathan says:

    And no doubt Cash had yet more money off the taxpayer to do up his listed mansion. Most of us in the immediate area know where he lives!

  33. 33

    You are quite correct. This story is ruined by the irrelevant and over-simplistic greedy millionaires aspect. It is the facts relating to the claim that count.

    You lot are allfar too liberal , hanging is merciful
    Break them all on a wheel then drag them along the Edgware Rd where they can enjoy the “cultural enrichment” that they have inflicted upon us before we burn their entrails, castrate them and then slowly roast them over hot charcoal

    The part you seem to be having difficulty is that the Rules have never been satisfactory, before or after the last scandal, A property should be bought, close to Parliament, with Halls of Residence in it – not so different to a university.

    They would be entitled to a bedroom and bathroom each, free of charge or benefit in kind. If that is not good enough for them, then they can pay for alternative accommodation with their own funds, no ability to claim expenses for it (including any extra travel for the extra distance from that which is provided) and subject to entirely the same taxes that would apply to you or me.

    Let’s hope the BBC gets closed down too.

    I hate Parliament so much it hurts says:

    No, those flats could be sold off, with the money used to pay off the £12billion that was borrowed to pay for the games.

    Instead, block-rent 600 flats in Tower Hamlets, and shove all the MPs there. They’re forever squealing that multiculturalism and immigration “are good for Britain”, so force the parliamentary filth to live their dream.

    Well, even then, H went to a posh school (not that you would know it sometimes) so his background and aspirations must surely be similar to G’s.

    Beast, you f#$kwit, he got rich by working hard. You should try it. Then he joined Parliament. He is one of the few members who has taken principled stands e.g. on the EU rather than saying anything to get promoted. As a result he has stayed on the backbenches and this alone will have cost him £ hundreds of thousands. If Parliament were full of people like Cash the country would be a lot better off.

    The trouble with the idea of gathering MP’s all in one place like that should be obvious from the nom de plume of the boss of this operation. All kinds of security arguments would be mustered against such an idea in this day and age of international terror. One could “behead” the British Government all in one stroke.

    Scary Biscuits says:

    Sandra, corruption is defined as taking or giving money with the purpose of pursuading somebody in another’s employment to do something that they wouldn’t otherwise do. Much of the original expenses scandal fitted this definition because it was used by the whips to ensure that MPs remained complaint. This compaint against Cash doesn’t appear to fit the description. The taxpayer’s didn’t buy him a house, they contributed to one by accepting mortgage payments in lieu of rent. He still has a mortgage but what he does with that property is up to him. As long as he is an MP he is entitled, quite reasonably, to a room near to Parliament. Whether this should be a dormatory, as Schrodinger thinks, or a 5* hotel as Labour think is a different debate but it is still fair that MPs are paid reasonable expenses for staying in the capital. By picking on everybody with equal hatred you protect those who are still abusing the system. Try to be a bit more discerning.

    No politicians should be paid by the public. Let their supporters support them. They could vote online, if they even need to go through that absurd ritual. No sane terrorist would want to kill an MP, objectively they’re on the same side, against the British public. If publicity hunters killed some MP’s it would not matter as they would soon be replaced by others as bad. The destruction of the Houses of Parliament would however be a most regrettable loss of a beautiful building. It’s such a pity that it’s infested by political vermin.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
