To err is human, to charge it to the taxpayers is to steal to fund your vice.
Jacqui Smith’s husband Richard Timney – who she pays £40,000 a year out of parliamentary expenses – is exposed in the Sunday Express for charging his porno-on-demand subscription to the taxpayer.
He gets to watch the money shots and we pay for his cheap thrills. What possible explanation is there for charging this to the taxpayer? Guido would like to hear Richard Timney justify his state subsidised w***ing.
Meanwhile Nigel Griffiths it seems was less than honest in explaining to the News of the World his very own pornographic photo-shoot in his office when he claimed to them that their story was “Absolutely groundless! Fabricated evidence! You must have some fabricated evidence! Outrageous! Absolutely outrageous!”
The News of the Screws mock his lawyer’s claims:
Incredibly 53-year-old Griffiths wants you to believe he has “little recollection” of spending 38 minutes taking 27 explicit images of a woman spreadeagled across the furniture of his ground floor Commons office, just yards from the Prime Minister’s own Commons office.
It was such an unmemorable sex session that he also apparently barely remembers, just half hour later, spending another hour and 40 minutes taking a futher 44 pictures at a second location.
On Friday Griffiths’ lawyer David Price blamed the MP’s loss of memory about the Remembrance Day romp on being “under the influence of alcohol”. But at one point he had recollected enough to create the time to transfer those 71 snaps from his camera to his laptop.
Remember that his Remembrance Day Frolic took place in his office paid for by the taxpayers, then went on to presumably his flat, also paid for by the taxpayers. Far from it being a drunken and forgotten frolic it turns out that he took the deliberate trouble to ensure he would not forget, by uploading the pictures to his laptop – a laptop computer also paid for by the taxpayers out of his parliamentary expenses. Presumably this would be so he would be able to reminisce over the 27 photos and later he too could enjoy a state subsidised w**k over the memory.
In other news Lord Myners, the minister responsible for cracking down on tax havens, has assets hidden in offshore tax havens. No porn involved this time, but he is still a w****er.
