Taxpayer Billed £700,000 For Ex-MP Wind Up Costs

Outgoing MPs billed the taxpayer almost £700,000 in office wind up costs when they stood down or were booted out by voters in May. By Guido’s calculation, new figures released by IPSA today show the 182 MPs who left their seats claimed £691,000 in “winding up” expenses. Most of the claims were submitted in June and July, and Guido is told by IPSA that they are still expecting further claims from tardy ex-MPs.

Disgraced LibDem David “The Jews” Ward was still claiming for shredding well into July, while Tim Yeo was still charging us for his stationery four months after vacating his seat. Troughing ’til the bitter end…
