Mail: Squatters Take Over The Tumbledown 'main' House Of Mr And Mrs Expenses.

Recommended Posts

'Squatters take over the tumbledown 'main' house of Mr and Mrs Expenses':


The ramshackle house that the married Labour MPs known as ‘Mr and Mrs Expenses’ claim as their ‘main’ home has been taken over by squatters.

Alan and Ann Keen say the derelict semi-detached house in Brentford, West London, is their primary residence and have claimed £140,000 in four years for a second home ten miles away in Westminster.

But now ten squatters have taken up residence in the Brook Road South property, which has boarded-up windows, weeds choking the front steps and a beer-can strewn garden.


Neighbours say they rarely saw the Keens – even before the building work began.

The couple claimed nearly £40,000-a-year under the second home allowance, which has helped them buy a £750,000 Thames-side apartment. Besides claiming mortgage interest of £2,600 a month on their second home allowances, they claimed for other charges and maintenance, including £50 to have their home cinema system reconfigured.

Last night, neither Mr or Mrs Keen was available for comment.
