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…

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
