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…

      Just as in the Savile fiasco, those who were aware of this practice and turned a blind eye are as guilty as the perpetrators which probably suggests an empty list.

        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. That would do for starters

          It was called the National Liberal Club. In those days most of the out-of-London Tories were spread across half a dozen smaller clubs. If Transport House had included bedrooms the answer would have been complete.

    I think Leeds is a tad too far to commute Guido. But why is he bunking up with a sarah Teather lookalike?

    • 43

      He hasn’t actually stated that they are shagging. Everything else but.

      For what it is worth, my opinion is that he deserves the money if he has to crawl on top of that. Way beyond the call of duty.

      WTO sets trade agreements, not the EU.

      How would BMW, VW & Siemens (to name a few) react to a trade war with Britain?

      German industry does not call UK PLC “treasure island” for nothing – check out just how much of their market share is from selling the UK tech products.

      We are leaving the EU – will it be by the ballot box or by other less peaceful means beginning with b?

    “Sheffield South East MP Clive Betts and his Labour colleague Frank Roy both rent out properties in London while claiming their own rent. Tories George Freeman, John Glen and Jessica Lee also rent out London flats, while claiming for expenses including rent, council tax and hotel bills.”

    be swept under the carpet no matter what methods the Bia*sed Broad*casting Com*pany use to try & achieve that goal.


    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.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
