  1. So – Alan Duncan claims for gardening expenses but offers to repay when told the public find this unacceptable and distasteful.

    Ben Bradshaw on the other hand who has fraudulently claimed mortgage interest on his partner’s half of a property tells the tax paying public to get stuffed.

    Oink, oink.

    “Ben Bradshaw on the other hand who has fraudulently claimed mortgage interest on his partner’s half of a property tells the tax paying public to get stuffed.”

    David Cameron also fraudulently claimed mortgage interest on his girlfriend Samantha’s half of the property. Is he paying this back also? If not then why not?

  3. These MP’s have been Property developing at Tax payers expense, they should pay back the profit’s from Property developing which will be more than a few thousand pounds!

  4. At least they are paying back. Over here in Northern Ireland the Swish family Robinson, Peter and Iris rake in tax payers money to the tune of over £500,000 a year. Iris triple jobs and gets money for being a councillor, MLA and MP for Westminster. Is that moral ?
    They both employ their 2 sons and daughter to the tune of £30,000 each of tax payers money. Whatever happened to fair employment practises. It’s time their expenses claims were thoroughly looked into.

  5. If I were to rob a bank, and then get pulled over by the police, do you think they will let me off if I give them all the money back?

    Ditto this bunch. It’s not just a matter of waving your cheque book about and we will forget all about it. What a lot of these MP’s have done is at best immoral, and in many cases illegal. They should be sacked forthwith and many charged with fraudulent activity.
