Exclusive: Rent-Swapping Tories’ £34,000 Rule Bending Pad Jessica Lee and Stuart Andrew’s Cosy Rent Arrangement

The Register of Members’ Interests reveals that Dominic Grieve’s PPS Jessica Lee owns a flat in London from which rental income is received. In spite of this Lee bills the taxpayer £1,430-a-month to rent another house in London. A rent-swapper caught red-handed. But this one does not end there…

Lee shares the expenses-funded flat with fellow Tory MP Stuart Andrew, who in turn owns another property (albeit in Leeds) from which he receives rental income. Both Lee and Andrew claim a hefty £1,430-a-month each – his people have confirmed to Guido that the total rent for the London property stands at £2,860-a-month. With MPs limited to claiming £1,666-a-month for London accommodation, that’s a clever way of getting round the rules for a nice pad…

Guido has contacted Lee’s office at least five times over the last few days, but despite repeated assurances of a response, she is refusing to comment. George Osborne says households should not receive more than £26,000-a-year in benefits. The Lee-Andrew household is raking in over £34,000-a-year of our cash in benefits…

    If these sods were so bloody good at fiddling our taxes, you’d have thought that they could have a go at running the economy, after the stupid Balls/Brown fiasco which was utterly hopeless, and brought us all to our knees.

    These people make my blood boil, and to think that they are stealing so much from a staggering economy just beggers belief.

    Cameron had better jump on these spongers double-quick, as he’ll be losing even more votes than the ones he’s already lost (in my case, to UKIP), when these revelations become more important than that bloody Savile blokeb shagging children.

    Why don’t the goverment buy a block of flats where all mps from an area outside the travel to work time of 11/2 hours of the house of commons can live rent free if they want other accomodation eslewhere in the Capital ( a luxury pad where they can keep their totty or R B ) they have to pay for it, no subsidised rent on expenses, every one the same. All mps shall use public transport to get to the H o C, Any damage to the flat will be put right by deductions from salary. Now some one might ask what about ministers without a state home (forgotten the name) they can have the penthouse flats on top of which would be sighted rockets/missiles just like those flat in the east end.

    Of course the P/T Chairman Fang Pang is just dishing out terse letters about protecting B B C’s editorial independence & for everyone to quickly buzz off……..
    ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ……….

    P/T Chairman Fang Pang will be heading for the same secure unit as McMental very soon as he’s has lost the plot & is delusional to the real truth.

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.”
