..sounds like a joke, actually the punchline is they all claimed extremely generous mileage expenses despite being entitled to free First Class train tickets. The dodges are many, not least the multi-million pound index linked pensions that our political masters allot themselves whilst taxpayers’ pensions are raped by Gordon Brown and slashed by the stockmarket. I’m so looking forward to perusing MPs expenses. I hear of a rush to repay ‘mistakes’ by some MPs. Anyone care to draw draw our attention to any particular mistaken expense claims?
