Peter Bone’s Family Actually Trouser £200,000 From Taxpayer

The Times splashes on Peter Bone being questioned under caution over a £100,000 benefit fraud involving Mrs’ Bone’s mum. It is alleged that taxpayers’ money was used to fund her care after her assets were apparently deliberately concealed. The real figure for how much money the Bones cream off the taxpayer could actually be double that at £200,000. On top of Bone’s salary as an MP, Mrs Bone was paid between £45,000 and £49,999 last year. Meaning that between them the Bones are raking in more than £100,000 from the taxpayer a year, on top of the £100,000 Mrs Bone’s mum allegedly swindled. He denies the allegations…

        Cameron to tackle homelessness with hyenas

        BRITAIN’S homeless people are to be eaten by imported carnivores, it has emerged.

        Inspired by Ethiopia’s urban hyena problem, David Cameron plans to introduce 150 of the animals to consume those of no fixed abode.

        Hyenas’ ability to eat their prey in its entirety, including bones and clothing, makes them ideally suited for urban cleansing.

        The prime minister said: “We all know the best way to tackle homelessness is state sanctioned murder.

        “I originally favoured the idea of turning tramps into a foodstuff called Soylent Green, but that was from a film so straight away you’ve got copyright issues.”

        Tom Booker is a homeless person in Swindon, where six trial hyenas have been introduced: “Hyenas tend to use their energy in quite a linear way, so it should be possible to outwit them by running in a zig zag pattern.

        “Actually wait, maybe that’s crocodiles.”

      A bit late with that one Geedes on the Beeb website early this morning, Boney trotted out the usual “I did nothing wrong”, but it maybe a bit rich saying his m-i-l colluded with boney to hide her assets in she was ill enough to go into a nursing home now they cannot be forced to sell their homes if they go into a nursing home incase they go back to live there. Still at £1500+pw any cash assets will rapidly disappear.

        Amazing how quickly the Beeb are to besmirch a Tory and yet they took days and days to report on Harriet Harman and the NCCL association with PIE.
        First rule of thumb at BBC News – its only a STORY when it’s got TORY in it. Innit.

    He sold his house in Rushden and has two flats in London. One in Kennington which he owns, and a flat from Lord Carlile which is paid by the taxpayer. His son also works for him (Alex).

    If he is renting a cheap place in the constituency to allow him to claim upto 22k in Westminster, maybe that’s a separate investigation?

    Despite spending 130k a year on staff (how many his family?) and his own 67k salary, not once can you call up and speak to anyone.

    I’ve just skimmed through that ‘Smoking Gun document’ in the link and, much as I loath Labour in all its guises, I don’t think Harriet was proposing anything unreasonable in that document.

    It’s quite clearly against child pornography. It’s concerned only that naked pictures of kids be taken in context ie nobody gets arrested for taking pictures of their kids in the bath or for sex education material or legitimate documentaries or dramas.

    And the ‘reduction in sentences’ refers to lower sentences for people who possess kiddy po*rn compared to those who actually took the pictures. The users ‘v’ the ‘pushers’ if you like.

    If that’s the ‘smoking gun’ evidence ‘proving’ Harriet was supporting P*I*E then they’re talking shit.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
