Multi-Millionaire Clegg Claims Tax Free Allowance99% of the Maximum Legally Allowed

So we wait 48 days for something that Nick Clegg said should be published immediately* and it breaks down as follows:

Additional Costs Allowance he claimed £23,083.00

100% of the maximum £23,083 legally allowed.

Incidental Expenses Provision claim £20,926.63

98% of the maximum £21,339 legally allowed.

Guido wonders why it took so long to add up. Does this restore your trust in politicans?

UPDATE : Checking the back of an envelope, at the 40% rate that is equivalent to gross pay of £74,036 on top of his salary – effectively doubling his salary for home improvements.

*”His “publish immediately” demand here. Detailed breakdown here.
