Two Home Tory Bills Taxpayer for Hotel High Life

The rent-swappers who own one London home are bad enough, but it takes a certain kind of trougher to bill the taxpayer for hotel stays when he already has two properties in the capital to choose from. Back during the original expenses scandal David Amess hid in a hairdressers after being doorstepped over his greedy second home claims. Once again the Tory MP has been caught red handed.

Amess owns a flat in east London which he rents out, claiming over £7,000 in expenses for the rent on a south west London flat in which he lives. But being a rent-swapper who makes money from the taxpayer isn’t enough for Amess. Despite charging us for the rent on the home he is registered as living in, the Tory MP has claimed another £8,000 expenses to stay in London hotels over the last year. All the while his taxpayer-funded rented home is left empty. Amess has been in parliament for nearly thirty years. Now would be a good time for him to announce his retirement…

    It’s all the same MP’s who were troughing during the last expenses scandal. There should at least be a means to sack them for this gross dishonesty!

    Otis B Berger the Third from Maine says:

    The British public is getting hacked off with Cameron trying to talk about prisoners when he has failed to increase prison capacity in the last two years .

    What the British public want is truth and transparency about MPs expenses .

    If MPs have done wrong theyshould be prosecuted and sent to prison just like the last lot .

    It’ll be hi-jacked by the likes of Prescott who will use it to conduct politically motivated witch-hunts in their local area. And ensure the on-going immunity to prosecution of their own.

    It’ll be bad enough being a T*ry councillor in Hull without Prescott initiating a world of vexatious investigations designed to make local headlines of the sort ‘T*ry councillor investigated by police…’ tying his political opponents up in all manner of manufactured legal shite in the same manner as Labour pioneered by arresting opposition MPs on bogus charges.

    John Prescott’s speech to become crime commissioner. Plays on a permanent loop.

    …insofar as one can be certain, in the very real sense that my knowledge, with regards to policing or crime such as stabbing with intent to cause offence or theft from a moving vehicle or the very real fear of the fear of crime itself, which affects many people..indeed vulnerable non-able bodied immobile vulnerable young mothers from hardworking families and these people are on the scrapheap ‘coz of Tory cuts to the EMI means they can’t download their college diplomas from t’internet or even get a foot on the doorbell of the opportunity that Labour gave to all people young or old , poor or poorer, black or erm..well..lets not dwell on race but insofar as one can be certain…

    Ex-Tory says:

    Guido, you spoil it once again by linking personal wealth to false claims. Just because he has an investment property that he rents out, why should he not claim for accommodation expenses, as he is entitled? What kind of flat can you rent close to Westminster for £583/mth. i would guess he stayed part of the year in hotels when his visits to London were sporadic and he did a short-term rent for periods when he was in London for most of the week.

    You trying to create an expenses scandal that is just not there. Hence, the rest of the media are hardly covering it. The only issue, as I see it, are the left-wing, socialist MPs who berate others for tax avoidance and capitalist money making, but do the best to squeeze as much money out of the system as they can.

    What we need is a maximum charge of 2% of profits for intellectual rights – retrospectively for the past 5 years, payable this tax year, or 1% from now on if not agreed.

    Long service brings its perks.

    In Guido’s case it’s, for example, not having to queue up for his morning doughnut, one of the office women bringing it instead to his desk.

    So Mr Amiss gets a little perk. After 30 years service!

    Wake up and smell the coffee, Guido. (One of the girls has just thoughtfully put it on your desk. Saved you the walk.)

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.”
