Whinging B8Stard Mps

Recommended Posts

That's the point of expenses.

They cover your expenses.

Some whinging MP says they have had to borrow off relatives at xmas and they should have more expenses.

Blox to it.

If you need something because of your MP job then it's an expense and not a problem.

If you don't, then you pay for it yourself and - here's a novel thought - live within your means.

....absolutely, who do they think they are? special people, our nurses, care workers and many more who do wondrous voluntary work in our communities do it for nothing....MPs get paid a good salary...many more get far less without the benefit of expenses to top it up.... ;)

I suggest they pop over to HMP Spring Hill and ask their mate David Chaytor how to scam more money.

Was on r4 at lunch time news

Think it must be her

http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2011/feb/03/commons-leader-attacks-mps-expenses-watchdog

• Morgan said her £77 claim for a big society reception at the House of Commons, in which local volunteers were invited to meet the minister Nick Hurd, was subsequently paid out.

She said she had been forced to take out personal loans and rely on her husband's income to subsidise the start-up costs of becoming an MP, but that Ipsa was aware of the problems and was improving the system.

They need to learn to "cut their cloth."

Others have to live within their means so why should they be any different. If they want riches they can go find a job as a local authority "excecutive." :angry:

MPs have been reading MicBrown's book on claiming benefits again.

Some great comments - people have learned to check behind the affronted fronts the scheming MP's put on!

nickmavros SO THAT WE KNOW WHO IS TALKING

Sir George Young claimed the maximum second home allowance on his London flat for the past two years.

In total, the Old Etonian, chairman of the standards and privileges committee, claimed £127,159 between 2001 and 2008 for his flat in Victoria, within walking distance of the House of Commons.

By far his biggest outgoing was the interest repayments on the flat he bought for £397,000 in 2005, which averaged more than £1,400 a month.

He has also claimed for electrical items including a £699 washer-dryer (reduced to £500 by the fees office) and a £449 dishwasher (reduced to £375), as well as modest food claims of £5 a week.

YOU SYCOPHANTIC ROYALIST - YOU SHOULD BE ABSOLUTELY ASHAMED OF YOURSELF!

Look at the pies a typical MP has their fingers in + £1,250 per hr fees paid on top of Parliamentary earnings and expense claims!

Just imagine the collusion going on within Parliament as each MP with outside 'interests' influences Govt decisions on public support for Eurotunnel and which 'favorite' companies get allocated 'plumb' contracts for huge public funded construction works etc

Corrupted 'influence' towards decisions being made must be incredible!

As you can see below he's mixed in with investment banksters plus the ECO ******** public rip-off!

The point is: it is an expense, it is reclaimable, but they have to pay it up front and wait 3 months for it to be repaid.

It's all very well saying that they should be able to afford to front 10K of expenses in advance, but that is missing the point.

We need more "normal" people in government not more "public school rich kids" and the former don't have the 10K, but the new expenses rules are excluding them!

financially that may not be so if they are found not to have carried out their fidudiciary responsibilities....course, no-one of note is ever prosecuted for failing, indeed, not knowing is a common defence, which is odd, as the Companies Acts say time and again that not knowing is not a defence as Directors have legal rights to all relevent information, indeed, it is their duty to find out.

but so what, its only the law.

I must say all these companies on the register of members' interests seem extremely charitable, they give so much to our democratically accountable elected representatives that singularly exist to serve the public interest and expect nothing back in return. It's like the Big Society in action, heartwarming.

Listed outside interests paying the best part of £180,000+ for just a few hours of activity (mainly just humdrum activity and most of which could easily be done far cheaper and possibly at little or no extra cost by one of the other directors) - but they're so badly off they've even got to scrounge around for free car rentals and free golfing holidays.

From the dates it looks like he used the complimentary Bentley rental to go on the complimentary golfing holiday in France.

I have never ever read such a load of old tosh...

MPS have yet again shown their greed - join the real world - i know plenty of people who have to pay for their own rail fare into london at STANDARD FARE because they have to & they earn half what MPs do.

the whole system is still completely ridiculous - I fail to see why they should be able to claim these ridiculous amounts of expenses...but we are supposed to sympathise? Fck off.

I'm usually bemused by your unique style of contextual analysis and rabid conspiracies, but I think you might be on to something there.

The verb is mid-13c., originally "to play, romp;" meaning "be furious" first recorded c.1300
