Expenses bill to soar as MPs force watchdog to relax rules

MPs will be able to claim millions of pounds more in expenses under reforms to the system to be announced today.

From next month, MPs will be able to claim for the costs of accommodating their children at a second home – and will receive thousands of pounds extra towards staffing costs.

31 MPs who live in commuter areas around London will also again be able to claim for a second home. MPs will also be able to use a taxpayer-funded credit card to pay for certain home and office costs.

The relaxation of expenses rules will be announced today by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (Ipsa) – following an aggressive campaign against the regulator from MPs.

David Cameron had threatened to abolish the new regulator if it did not agree to water down the rules.

Why am I not surprised. Question is, who does my vote go to after 5 years of the current dictatorship?

The plan is to be long gone from this godforsaken place by then in any case.

Still, I think our politicians to a wonderful job of steering our country through difficult times...

Does not take long before the pigs are back in the trough. We have too many MP's, MEPS and councillors all milking the system and look where it has got us.

Oh good, the HMRC are doing the same for us as well I assume.
