Pay Points for Political Piggies

If you see any good expenses spots link to them in the comments and Guido will highlight them here all day:

pig-in-shitPaul Waugh notes George Osborne had us pay £47 for a DVD of his speech on “Value for Money”.

pig-in-shitJames Arbuthnot thinks it wholly necessary for us to pay £138 for a “chainsaw for logs”.  Massacre him at the general election.

pig-in-shitTerry Rooney claims off us £125 pcm for “cleaning” and his landlord bills him for cleaning too. No receipt was required for the cleaner because it is was below £250. He cleaned up.

pig-in-shitJulia Goldsworthy made us pay £734.30 for her Meniscus “rent” under incidental expenses.  What is that about?

pig-in-shitDoug Henderson claimed for tax advice from the taxpayers and claims frequently for the maximum amount for food.

pig-in-shitAlan Duncan takes £250 petty cash each and every month without any justification. Because he could.

pig-in-shitLembit Opik claimed £19.99 for the “Mother of All Wigs” – justified apparently as a sundry cost “incurred while supporting a Charitable Event”. It actually appears that we taxpayers supported it with cash Lembit.

pig-in-shitDid Jim Devine MP really claim £938 for a Mink coloured suite? He could have just made it up like his electrical bills.

UPDATE : There is just so much troughing that it is impossible to do it all justice…
