A Conservative Cover-up

Section:

After ‘The Telegraph’ revealed that details of payments to those connected to MPs were briefly leaked on Thursday, we join calls for the way politicians and their leech-like families are renumerated to be changed

 

In 2009, The Telegraph did a sterling job in exposing the greed of MPs and this morning, the paper’s deputy political editor Steven Swinford highlighted that the nepotism of those elected to Westminster continues. In revelations published Saturday, details of payments to members’ family were supposedly leaked for four hours on Thursday night on the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority’s website and remained there until a Conservative MP named Karl McCartney complained about the breach.

 

On Saturday, The Telegraph reported: “MPs who saw the data on Thursday night [suggested] that the data had the potential to be ‘hugely embarrassing’ for MPs who employ their wives, children and other ‘connected parties’” and added: “There are concerns that the data could have easily been downloaded and could eventually be made public”.

 

Though IPSA removed the information relatively quickly, the mere fact that it was deemed worthy of mention in a national newspaper proves once again that Westminster is still a murky hotbed of dodginess. The way in which self-serving politicians are allowed to claim expenses must change and though MPs will be rightly banned from hiring their children and spouses after the next election, that is not enough. It is time to “drain the swamp of Westminster” and it is time to root out corruption in British politics.

  1. This is how Mrs May is MAKING BRITAIN GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lining the pockets seems like an excellent way to get on with Brexit, but somehow I think trouble is ahead for this unelected placeholder and her team, and so Brexit “may” have to be put on hold prematurely – with some luck. Shame about the loss of the shoe money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Are you Rod in disguise? Your comment is quite as puerile.
      Stick with playing with your plastic duck at bathtime

  2. ……and if they think a measly £1600 is enough to house the Plastic Duck they are wrong. I demand a home that is as least as expensive as the better stuff Matthew posts on this site. I will not be appeased. I could settle for one of the better cars and become Racing Duck.

  3. Yes and no different in this country.
    Just had one claimed $127000 for living away allowance from his electorate, turned out to be a caravan down the surf cost. Another took a $10000 helicopter ride to snip the ribbon at a fete. Her excuse was, the traffic would have been terrible, I she didn’t want to be late. We also had our local member here, claim for a business trip & flight to North Queensland with his wife and two children, all first class of course. He was asked to explain why this was on New years eve. I just love how most of them offer to pay it back, AFTER they have been caught. If it was the private sector, they would lose their job, and probably do prison time.
