'Ex-Tory peer Lord Taylor jailed for expenses fraud':

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-13604710

Former Conservative peer Lord Taylor of Warwick has been jailed for 12 months for falsely claiming £11,277 in parliamentary expenses.

He claimed travel costs between his Oxford home and Westminster, as well as subsistence for staying in London.

The 58-year-old said he had made the false claims "in lieu of a salary", and had been acting on colleagues' advice.

I wonder how many of those colleagues would be willing to admit to giving that advice.

And yet the jailed Taylor, and the currently suspended Baroness Uddin will have the right to resume their seats in The Lords.

Incredibly, a Peer cannot be sacked from The Lords for any reason whatever. There is no procedure.

All-day attendance is rewarded with a £300 allowance.

Each and every day.

Tasty work if you can get it....

Do you think they'll be publishing one of those lists of the wacky excuses MP's come up with for fiddling their expenses- like the one they did recently on the excuses offered by disability benefit cheats?
