MPs to be told to rent second homes

BBC: MP mortgage claims 'to be banned'

MPs will be banned from claiming the cost of mortgages on their second homes under proposals being put forward, sources have told the BBC. It is understood the Kelly committee, which has been reviewing MPs' expenses, will recommend that MPs will only be able to rent second homes in future. It is also expected to recommend that MPs will not be able to employ family members in the future.

So who's name can they put their own house in to then rent it back ??

Maybe they could rent off each other.

There must be away around this little conundrum.

Like the rest of us, they'll wait for the crash, then try to pick up the pieces.

Suspect they'll all be renting second homes off each other at rates well above what they'd get on the market, and employing each other's relatives to 'work' from home at well above market wage levels.

I love the phrase they use "phase in over the next 5 years!'
Public opinion says they should repay the money they have stolen (sorry, received) over the LAST 5 years!
