    erm says:

    they cheer on people being done for small amounts of benefit fraud yet they are in to us all for £10,000s and still turning up for work and getting paid.

    imagine if any of us had our hand in the till at work, we’d be out the door in minutes, not on a nice ‘repayment plan’.

    Handycock (Teen Fondler) says:

    This is a criminal infringement of MP’s rights. By the way, I paid mine back as soon as I was caught out fiddling my mortgage payments and I was let off. Boaz.

  11. 11
    I Remember You Hoo says:

    We would also have plod knocking on our doors and taking us down to the station for charging. If we paid it back or not.

    The only way to end the parasites sordid behaviour, is to make the laws we have to live by, applicable to Members of Parliament.

    jus'wonderin' says:

    Out of interest, if an MP loses money when they sell a second home financed by a tax-payer funded mortgage, can they reclaim that money? Or is the risk entirely on one side?

  13. 13
    erm says:

    couldn’t agree more I Remember You Hoo.

    we definitely would be before the beak

    You’re right. Not one Ukipper in that list.

    Ban The ParaMPs says:

    Would it not be better if an MP actually lived in the constituency he represents at his own cost and the taxpayer provided him (if required) a flat in Londonistan for his term of office for use when he is away from home?

  17. 17
    Catty Comment (Ms) says:

    They should also be paying extortionate interest too on these unauthorised overdrafts – before being locked up for being fraudsters.

  18. 18
    erm says:

    maybe MP’s need to be on some kind of benefits cap as well.

    force them to share flats etc

    MPees Fiddling us the least of my worries says:

    I have grown up with the cruel reality of feeling that nature trapped in a body that is not Cyrano de Bergerac. I am learning French, sword fighting and dueling and I have to live as a historic Frenchman for 2 years. I am hoping soon to have my Cyrano reassignment surgery to lengthen my nose…
    My only wish was that I not had the mistaken belief that I had wanted to be Marie Antionette first….
    And all you lot have to worry about is crummy few grand that the fiddlers have pinched!

    British Obama, Chuka Umunna To Lead Trade Mission To Nigeria and Ghana.

    Chuka Umunna, a Brit with Nigerian descent is a fast rising star of British politics and the 34-year old is famed as the UK’s version of Barack Obama for his meteoric rise in British politics.

  27. 27
    Curly says:

    So long as they can keep on claiming 100% of their mortgage payments there is no incentive to sell at a loss, so they will just hang on until the market turns or sell their original non-taxpayer funded first house and move into the second one.

    Joe Public on PAYE,Still Over Taxed & bled dry on everything says:

    Give them 90 days to pay in full what they owe, if not disqualify them

    as a MP aka para*sites, lee*ches & Pim*ps, forcing a By-Election where

    there were the former MPs. They of course would be prevented from

    contesting the seat & would be subject to debt proceedings through

    the Courts. That should help focus greedy Pigs on what they must do

    without fail……

    You don’t sell. Never sell.
    You take out 110% mortgages on the second home. Use that cash for deposits to buy more property for buy to lets.

    Honestly, sometimes I think my colleagues are dumber than frogs.
    Do you know Dennis Skinner has been at the trough for 40 years has an insignificant property portfolio.

    What does the fool do all day long ?

    sumthing says:

    Guido. Not a mathematician, but checking columns M, N and O would suggest many dragging their feet in completing repayment have been granted an extension until an end of years date [ 3- 4 days] before extra interest or punitive measures will be taken.
    Does Burnham’s end of repayment date plan [column M]- 11/1/2013 and start date / end date of claims, [columns N and O] suggest an extra interest free period???

  41. 41
    Vote Tory, get heir to Blair says:

    I bet he will promise a woolly (as in pulling-the-wool-over-our-eyes) Referendum on whether we should try to renegotiate the terms of our membership. In other words we will not get an In/Out referendum that the vast majority of the country is crying out for.

    what about me? you’ve forgotten about me. why did i have to be thrown to the tigers? is it cos it was in LOOT-TON?

    Hmmm says:

    Those figures look rather low as capital gains on London properties during a property boom.

    Could it be that they are selling these second homes at a knock-down price to their fellow leeches?

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.”
