Spending Watchdog Dined Out In Michelin-Starred Restaurants On Taxpayer Credit Cards

Recommended Posts

When a relative of mine worked for the EU in Belgium she was given £1k to buy clothes for attending evening events, a free 3 bedroom flat with cleaner and an enhanced ex-pat salary.

This was for a £30k a year job.

Very easy to be generous with other people's money.

Having said that it is nothing compared to what bankers do with our money with a similar lack of clarity as to how shareholders can prevent these abuses.

Grant Shapps accused Audit Commission of spending taxpayers' money 'like they had won the lottery'

A housing minister whose office is funded by a procession of mortgage brokers. surveyors, builders, etc. and who now thinks any mortgage restrictions by the FSA would be a bad thing.

The Audit Commission's excesses are well known to regular Eye readers, especially under their previous head, Sir John Bourn, who spent an incredible amount of taxpayers' money personally, and also seemed to be regularly joined on boondoggles by his wife. This department is one of the worst offenders.

This of course is the very pinnacle of hypocrisy, and stands to show how the system operates.

Remember neither the Government Policy Makers or indeed the Bankers are in any sense productive, but they love to lecture others on efficiency.

So of course spending restraint doesn't apply to them.

Its a cozy conspiracy between those in political power and those with financial power.

It's time to bankrupt the bankrupt banks and arrest the bankers, and time to turf out the politicians, arresting any that have fiddled or played lose with expenses or indeed who have taken bribes (direct or indirect) from the banks.

....I thought expenses was one of the best ways to get a tax free pay rise.....leaves you with more disposable income so therefore more choices. :unsure:
