Sunday Sleaze Bumper Edition

Sunday SleazeThere is a heck of a lot to round-up this morning.  So first a bit of light entertainment:

Tory MP James Gray, who Guido can confirm from previous behaviour is a complete shit, is exposed today by the News of the World “as a greedy skinflint after claiming for Remembrance Day wreaths on expenses.” Iain Dale calls James Gray “a class one copper bottomed shit… I feel sick to the stomach that an MP from the party I support could even contemplate claiming money for a wreath, let alone actually going ahead and doing it.” So bad news for the Tory Shadow Scottish Secretary David Mundell, who also claims for wreaths.  They are both pretty much unashamed that their tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice is to put in an expense claim.

Guido alluded to LibDem CEO Lord Rennard’s troughing ways yesterday, the News of the World has found out about his lying to the parliamentary authorities about his place of residence so he can trouser £41,678 tax free.  Guido will be returning to Lord Rennard in the near future.  His troughing dishonesty doesn’t end with this, nor does his personal morality bear much scrutiny.

The News of the Screws has a competition , the winner can live like an MP!

Live Free Like An MP

rsz_caroline-flint-wearing-hi-heelsCaroline Flint is posing as a diva in a fashion spread in the Observer.  The hard-hitting interview asks “Will she ever be able to improve on her number seven ranking in the Most Fanciable MP list?”  No questions however about the former Housing Minister getting the taxpayer to pay her stamp duty tax.

The Times reports that Baroness Thornton, a Labour minister in the whips’ office, with a £1 million family house near Hampstead Heath claims up to £22,000 a year in expenses by saying that her mother’s modest bungalow in Yorkshire is her main home.

Hazel Blears flipped her main residence and told a different story to the tax man enabling her to avoid paying capital gains tax on the £45,000 profit she made out of taxpayers.

Tom Watson, the mendacious Minister for Mudslinging and Digital Engagement, claims almost £100 a week for food.  Together with fellow Minister Iain Wright, he has used parliamentary allowances to lavish more than £100,000 on their shared Central London home since the last General Election.  That is one gold-plated pig sty.

Something to mull over; HMRC allows £5 per night subsistence deductions to taxpayers for overnight stays in the UK.  MPs voted themselves £20-a-day tax-free subsistence payments.  Why is the rule different for MPs?  Do they eat 300% more than the rest of us?

UPDATE : Talking of Tom Watson, after reading the above a co-conspirator emails;

tom_wThe first time I met him, after many bottles of vino and hours of him talking to my tits, he started telling me all about his second home in London and that he and Siobhan were looking to buy another one in the capital. I was thinking she must be loaded, but now that I consider it in light of current events, I have my doubts.

He is of course (like all MPs) loaded, courtesy of the taxpayers.

John McDonnell does a funny:

“I’m told there are a group of KGB colonels who are suing The Sun for associating themselves with us.”
